    Born from the white-hot ascent of Cold Chisel after the release of 'East,' and fueled by long days into nights on the road, 'Circus Animals' was a wide-ranging and brilliant record, moving seamlessly from the scalding blast of Jim Barnes's "You Got Nothing I Want" through to the full-tilt boogie of Ian Moss's "Bow River" and onto the tender strains of Steve Prestwich's "Forever Now".

    In between, chief songwriter Don Walker offers up some of his most shatteringly poignant lyrics on "Houndog", "Taipan" and "Letter to Alan". From the cover to the content, 'Circus Animals' was a truly Australian composition: wild, dry, reckless and mercilessly hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Greatest Rock Album From Australia no - just kidding. "Circus Animals" is probably the best rock record ever. When I bought the vinyl back in 1982 due to the rave review in a german music magazine, I was thrilled from the beginning to the very end. What a singer - and if there was ever a doubt which keyboarder can write the best of songs, this record gives you the answer. Don Walker is the man , so don't miss his classic tunes "Taipan" or the screaming "Hiundog". The rest of the tracks are nearly equally as good so I truly have to Recommend this CD to all JB customers. Nuff said!
