Back in the Circus (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Feb 24, 2004; Lead Performance: Jonatha Brooke

On her fourth solo album, folk rocker Brooke -- full of wry wisdom -- chronicles the high-wire act of finding ''real true love'' and the messy plunges that tend to follow. She also freshly paints classics (Brian Wilson's ''God Only Knows,'' JT's ''Fire and Rain'') with a semigloss of electronica. So you thought you were over your ex? ''Circus,'' with all of its wounded beauty, might prove otherwise.
