Circa Survive, 'Blue Sky Noise' (Atlantic)

7
Blue Sky Nose
Critical Mass
Label: Atlantic

by Kenny Herzog

After a long, whiny journey, mainstream emo finally initiates its "post-" era with Circa Survive's invigorating third album. Troubled frontman Anthony Green and his mates have embraced glossier production while reconnecting with At the Drive-In's teeming passion. Powerhouse tracks "Get Out" and "Through the Desert Alone" -- on which a crushingly sincere Green sings, "'Cause you were my ally once / You were my confidant / I need somebody close / To be close to forever" -- should be revelatory to the Warped kids, and might even turn the heads of aging cynics.
