Circus (stylized CiRcuS) is the second studio album released by Filipino alternative rock group Eraserheads in 1994. Hits from Circus are "Alapaap", "Sembreak", "Kailan" (originally a musical number from the play Manhid by Auraeus Solito), "Magasin", and "With a Smile". It is also the last album of the band to come in vinyl record format.
The album was reissued by Sony-BMG Entertainment in 2006. This is the first album that uses a sidely inverted letter e, a notable trademark of the band. The album cover was created by visual artist Mark Justiniani. The original artwork is now in a private collection of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
"Wating" is the theme song for the 1994 Filipino movie of the same name, starring Richard Gomez and Carmina Villaroel. It does not appear on the original cassette release. The last part of the song features Carmina Villaroel on vocals.
This album sold more than 200,000 copies as of 2012, which was certified seven times platinum by Philippine Association of the Record Industry and this also remained as their second best selling studio album of all time throughout their efforts as a band.
