Life-changing music
Those in the U.S. saddened by the advent of the red-state patriarchal, born-again point of view need only listen to A Circle is Cast to discover a powerful alternative. The 22 songs here give me new-found hope that there is another message and lifestyle that far transcends the tawdry themes bombarding us daily. After hearing Libana, I now firmly believe in the Goddess and know that things will get better with the undeniable rise in the feminist, pagan viewpoint. Three cheers!!
