Do You Believe In Shame – Halo Circus (Making Patterns Rhyme Tribute)

Today we’re finding new music from Halo Circus in the form of Do You Believe In Shame.

I loved the deep bass line as the intro, and hearing Alison Iraheta’s vocals with the addition of a different musical element throughout the first verse was particularly effective, bringing the song to a full crescendo. Once again, just as I settled in for the ride, I was dropped head first into the full power of the chorus.

There is a lot I really like about this cover. The simplicity of adding the musical elements throughout the verses really works for me. I’ve always liked the message of this song, and the power of her vocals really brings that home and enhances what was already a very strong song. I am not quite so crazy about the wall-of-noise that seems to hit me in the chorus, like everything is turned up to “10”, but I can forgive that for the new journey this cover carves for the listener.

As always, I look forward to seeing what you think!

  1. I like the original from Simon realy. This Version is famos. I love the rocking part ot this Version. Great voice.

  2. I like it a lot! I can see what you mean about the wall of sound effect, but thankfully, it is only for short bits and not quite as bad in the last segment of the song. It seems more balanced there. I really like the feel of the song, though and the vocals are fantastic!

  3. It sounds deep, genuine, simply, “basic” in its “rock perspective”.
    The vocalist sounds Pat Benatar and I’d still rather the rock versions, because the original band is not guitar-centric. .
