This seems to be the 'forgotten' Circus of Power release. While not as good as their incredible self-titled debut, this disc does have some good hard-rockin' tunes. 'Fire in the Night' and 'Two River Highway' are my personal faves.If you enjoyed their first disc, I imagine you'll enjoy this one as well.

No offence Whiplash, I hated this one. I found it quite boring.

Well, like I said, it's nowhere near as good as their debut album, but there are a FEW good tracks on it.'Circus of Power' was AWESOME from start to finish.I wish these guys had been more succesful on a national scale.

From: RockinHawk Date: March 17, 2004 at 7:13
This is different from the first realese. But I found it fantastic. You gotta love blues & southern rock to appreciate this fantastic CD. 'Simple Man/Simple Woman' is simply fantastic.

From: big hank Date: April 25, 2004 at 8:17
jeez i saw them on their first tour somewhere in queens and they were excellent. say, i met zowie once after a gig in nj with oyster cult and he told me he wanted to cash in with the band and quit to star this real estate business. I was just wondering if any of you c:P. fans know where zowie is. zowie, the rock realtor. hmmmm. he should have never abandoned his cat like that.

From: Hanger On Date: April 26, 2004 at 11:51
Zowie has apparently run out of real estate on his body for new tatoos. He will pay good $ to people who will get needled with the logo for his backyard shed band 'Megacoma'

When Alex wasn't rabbiting out on the big H he would jump on and amp, tie his scrotum in a knot like 'Puppetry for the Penis', and howl 'I'm a f***ing star, I'm a f***ing pretzel scrotumed star!!!' But no one would pay attention.

Not as good as the debut.They lowered a bit and maybe they were overshadowed by the Guns&Roses mania.Some good songs but not a most.Sorry...

From: punkiz Date: March 2, 2008 at 6:53
bastante malo es este disco suena a rockero con blues,sin ritmo sin pegada y sin nada,de lo peor ke he oido hace tiempo

From: spawn71 Date: June 30, 2010 at 8:52
After the wonderful debut, Rock Candy will reissue also this one with the usual treatment (24 bit remastering, new liner notes and booklet, etc)...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 28, 2011 at 12:59
In agreement with some comments above,this release is way lower than their very good debut...even though it has some enthusiastic moments such as "Last Call Rosie","Doctor Potion","Got Hard...","Temptation","Simple Man/Simple Woman" & the nice softy "Don't Drag Me Down"...i still stick 2 my comment of 2006....some bands including COP were overshadowed by the Guns & Roses mania of that time...70/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 17, 2013 at 13:03
I actually don't mind this disc, nor see a significant drop-off in quality from the debut. It is more bluesy and southern-rock-influenced, as some have pointed out, but the raw biker-rock is still very much present, with plenty of good riffs. One thing that has improved over the debut is the production: the guitars have a much better sound this time around, no more of that tinny, buzzing sound.

From: hair metal again Date: April 19, 2017 at 5:54
excellent 2nd step for CIRCUS OF POWER in their usual style &approach !some great riffs here like in"gates of love","desire/fire in the night","vices","temptation" ,a cool ballad like "don t drag me down" and a classic rocker like "last call rosie' are offered !their sound is like MASTERS OF REALITY &D.A.D. are riding their bikes and getting downtown!always liked them and i m very excited about seeing them live (what s left of them) this summer after so many years of being a fan
