First EP is a great start for Joy Circuit!
This first little EP of The Joy Circuit shows such great potential. I have listened to it dozens of times and love it more each time. Powerful, emotional, and soaring guitars/vocals. Haunting - yet in the best way possible.

beautiful new wave rock drone ep
this is a fantastic ep of atmospheric and melodic songs. you can hear the influence of Radiohead, Peter Murphy, Psychedelic Furs, Stone Roses, etc. yet the songs retain their own unique style and sound. more sparse and less metal than YTR. it would be interesting to hear a more focused full album effort with a hit single thrown in. "Secret Fires" comes close - buy this one!

EP1
this new EP hasnt left my CD player for the last week. these 5 masterpieces get 5 stars in my book. EP1 may actually save rocknroll from the mediocre releases that major labels are offering.

Moving forward
This CD just goes to show how an artist can grow in just a matter of time. Filled with delayed hooks that would make Edge blush (well....the edge from back in the day). This album has bits and pieces of influences that are personal to Jeff. The Cure, and U2. I hear a lot of National Skyline in this record as well. which excites me. Jeff has grown into one hell of a musician. So has Tim Dow, and Solomon Snyder .. he's a great bass player. All 3 have contributed to a wonderfull project that will hopefully get Jeff and the boys to where they need to be ... on the road.

EP1 is is an Excellent Purchase
it's always great to have albums being put out buy the bands you like
in this case you keep the spirit of failure, national skyline and year of the rabbit
if they are the only ones to keep those bands great sound alive then so be it
hearing EP1 insured my purchase for thier full length album unless they follow the footsteps of the life and times and break up before the full length happens

Really Good
I'll give this a 4-star review, simply because I think they should've tossed some more songs on there from the earlier demo they recorded. Anyway, great stuff from this trio! If you liked YOTR then this is a nice alternative until the band maybe gets back together. And even if they don't, The Joy Circuit is a pleasure to listen to as their own band and I hope to hear much more from them in the near future!
