"Eau de Humanity" (WEA; 2006)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Circuit's "Eau De Humanity" is from the Nickelback / Creed school of rock and, if you're a fan of those bands, you'll find plenty to like here. The CD is loaded with solid tunes that run the gamut from mid-tempo rockers to droopy, sappy ballads. 

The band is undeniably talented, both in the performance and songwriting arenas, and the CD is crisply produced, thanks to Dave Penner, who has also produced ... wait for it ... Nickelback. Unfortunately, like other bands in the genre, "Eau de Humanity" only occasionally shines with any originality and, although the CD will hold your attention throughout, it probably won't stick with you, at least the first and/or second times through.

"Eau de Humanity" is a CD that never lives up to the cleverness of its title, but delivers an adequate listening experience nonetheless.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
