'Circle' can be very messy and disorientating, but oddly that's exactly what make's Kyshera so intriguing.

Three-piece Modern Rock outfit Kyshera have been knocking about for a while now and 'Circle' is their third album. I did find their previous album a little bit hard going if I'm honest but 'Circle' is vastly superior in many ways. Kyshera are really hard to pigeonhole and comparing them to other bands is nigh on impossible because the list would be so long and varied it would most likely confuse anyone reading. They literally throw everything but – no – everything including the kitchen sink into the mix; 'Behind These Lies' even includes heavy use of Bongos and that's only one example of the band's eclectic nature.

Having listened to 'Circle, I'm not totally sure as yet whether it's a work of absolute genius or actually a bunch of weird, discombobulating nonsense. The album can be a mixed bag which is mainly due to the very varied influences and originality shown in the bands song-writing; it's something that can make some tracks harder to digest than others. It's a very dark and grimy album at times which is at total odds with some of the Funky bass- heavy moments. I think the mixture of Alt Rock vibes here will make these guys appeal to fans of that genre, as it is a little bit different.

I don't think this album is for mainstream consumption and to be honest I don't think that's what Kyshera were aiming for; obviously they want people to hop onboard the Kyshera crazy train but not by compromising their sound to make themselves Pop-based and "radio friendly".

Anyone who knows my tastes will not be surprised that the two tracks that make the deepest impression on me are the most commercial sounding selections. These tracks actually have a distinct contrast from the rest of the album as they have quite a brightness to them and feel more polished than the grittiness shown elsewhere. Ballad 'Gone' is a real stand out number and is the sort of song that if it was picked up by mainstream radio could make them overnight sensations, but it is definitely not representative of the whole album. 'The Wrong Size' is as about as close as Kyshera get to being "radio friendly" and it's by far the most upbeat song on 'Circle' with a real happy go lucky feel. It's one that really appeals to me and contains some great vocal "wooahh" hooks that make it really memorable.

Given the many clashes and mixing of styles and influences, 'Circle' can be very messy and disorientating, but oddly that's exactly what make's Kyshera so intriguing. If you're looking for something a little bit different, this album could be just what you're looking for!
