3 stars New York City's Shadow Circus has come a long way since their ambitious 2006 release " Welcome To The Freakroom ". The light heartedness of that album ( I still groove to '' Radio People '' ) that gave way to more sophistication on the follow up, '' Whispers And Screams " has been carried over to this teaser for their upcoming full length concept CD '' On A Dark Stormy Night ''. One thing that these two contrasting tracks ( one ballad, '' Daddy's Gone '' and one mini-epic.'' Rise '' ) are a sure indication that the circus is in to town to stay and has found a definite voice. Young rogressive rock influenced bands are a hard sell and risk being compared to the " heavy hitters " such as Dream Theatre or Opeth but Shadow Circus seems to have broken out of this constraint. Too early to tell really ( could have included a couple of more tracks! ), but this warm-up single has all the inklings of another jewel from Shadow Circus.
