5.0 out of 5 stars On a dark night, the lightening strikes, 16 Jan 2013
This review is from: On A Dark And Stormy Night (Audio CD)
The third album from this US band. A concept album based on Madeleine L'Engle book A Wrinkle in Time.

The album starts with the eight minutes long Overture and the scene is set for a classic concept album with a lot of twists and turns. Think the classic 1970s concept albums which was more like rock operas than rock music. On A Dark And Stormy Night very much fits into that mould. The music is both majestic, dark, melancholic and bombastic throughout. Shadow Circus has always gone down the circus theatrical route too and this is also the case here. Circus music is very much their sound and trademark.
The main instrument is keyboards, moog, melotron, guitars, bass and drums. David Bobick's vocals has some company of some female vocals too on this album. The vocals is great, btw. The melotron sound is great throughout and should give the band a lot of fans from the symph prog genre followers.

Overture is a great song and the signature song of this album as it implements all other ideas on this one hour long album. An hour of music I regard as one piece of music as this is a concept album. This is though one of the best albums of the year and substantial improvements on their two other great albums. This is also an album I am sure will be much talked about this winter too.

One more killer track would have meant I did not have to throw a coin up in the air to decide if this is a 4.5 or a 5 points album. The coin landed on a crown got it and it is a fiver album.

This is one of those are albums that you always want to play right through. No dud tracks, just a fabulous whole. I reckon this is one of my favourite all timers. Shadow Circus are very unique. They don't sound like anyone else. This is way the best thing they've eve done. I'm not good at going into helpful descriptions but what I can say is it is so musical to listen to and with some hard rock added to the very proggy sound. Absolutely one of the best albums you can buy.

It isn't enough that can surprise in such abundance of music, but this album surpassed expectations of fans. In it delightful notes, and high professionalism of musicians are enclosed. This album obeys on one breath. Very good project.
