    Maybe not their best, but Circle in the square is still an outstanding album. With great messages and very catchy tunes. The Flobots continue to prove why they should much bigger.

    The circle and the square is a diverse album that really is good. I could listen to all of the songs, and enjoy them, without skipping over any which is very rare for me. The powerful lyrics really hit home and the melodies are great.

    The Circle in the Square builds on the Flobots' catalogue.

    There's a fresh, East-meets-West ingenuity on culture-clash cuts such as Wrestling Israel, amid the straight-up, old-fashioned fury on the title track, and closers #OccupyEarth and Stop the Apocalypse. [8 Sep 2012, p.53]

    "Gonna Be Free" is a solid tune, but not strong enough to save Circle from mediocrity. [Aug 2012, p.88]
