Circling the Sun, the Orange Peels' third album, is a sensuous delight, a rich, vibrant ten-song set that finds primary Peel Allen Clapp singing with a lilt and clarity that could hasten wider recognition. Titles such as "How Green the Grass" and "Long Cold Summer" evoke imagery as vivid as a shimmering sunset. The mood shifts ever so nimbly from the effusive outpour of "Circling the Sun" and "What's It Like (Mary Jo)?" to the gentle repose of "California Blue," but the assured sound stays consistent throughout. An ecstatic mix of melody, texture, and ambiance sends Circling the Sun soaring into the stratosphere.
