"Besides being an absolutely terrific musician and performer, Dan Anibal is truly one of the greatest new “classical-influenced” progressive rock pianists on the New York/New Jersey music scene and one of my favorite songwriters. Dan’s profound lyrics, hooky chorus melodies and piano voicings combine to separate songs like “The Circus”, “Boxed Soul” and “Creatures of Habit” from the rest of the formula-cut pop/rock music out there now. Even the song “Your Smile”, which is his most commercially viable song so far, does not sell out. It is thoughtful, beautiful and 100% Dan Anibal."

"I recommend that you pick up a copy of Dan Anibal’s latest CD entitled “The Circus” and then go see him live. You will see for yourself why I am one of his biggest fans and a true believer in Dan’s inevitable rise to rock dominance."

With an aggressive, contemporary style and a powerful voice slightly reminiscent of Gavin Rossdale in his Bush days, New Jersey based singer/songwriter Dan Anibal is the consummate rock performer. From the hard driving title track, to the closing power ballad, "I'll Stay with You", Anibal shows many different sides on this debut recording.

The CD contains eleven songs as well as a hidden acoustic track that showcase not only his vocal abilities but great instrumental and lyrical chops as well. Standout tracks include, "Affliction" and "Your Smile" which could easily be a single on any alternative radio station. "The Circus" is definitely one of the best debut albums I have heard in a while and hopefully commercial success is not too far in the future for this talented artist.
