I've come across this band, Soul Sirkus, some time ago listening to their World Play record, and soon enjoyed it! Only afterwards (yes, the persons who made me listen to this record didn't tell me in advance who the musicians were), I found out that there were two of my favorite musicians, Jeff Scott Soto and Neal Schon:
Neal Schon - Guitar
Jeff Scott Soto - Vocals
Marco Mendoza - Bass
Virgil Donati - Drums
I had always appreciated Jeff Scott Soto in the early Malmsteen's albums (I still believe he's the only one to sing I'll see the light tonight) as well as Neal Schon with his great guitar playing in the band Journey, and it didn't come as a surprise I loved this record from the very first listening.
Powerful hard rock, great vocals, and great guitars! Moreover, in many songs, not too hard, and a little bit more melodic (yes I love melodic rock :-). Those kinds of songs you can feel the band itself enjoys to play (at least this was my impression). If you have the chance take a good look at them!
