2 stars Born from the ashes of Talent bands such as Black Jester , Moonlight circus release their first CD, and though I have only played this a few times I can already tell that their choice in a vocalist wasn`t a good one. Black jester (Moonlights former name) was a well rounded band they had great progressive music (all be it heavy) , great lyrics but they come under criticism for their weak vocals and this mutation from Black Jester into Moonlight circus has done nothing to improve the situation , in fact I think this time the vocals sung by Alessandro Secchi are even less suited and far weaker, in fact I can hardly understand a word he is singing and his range is pathetic, makes you wonder why a band with Dream Theater chops would choose him in the first place ? The songs on Outskirts of reality has decent lyrics though the songs are not all that well constructed. If I was going to give advice to anybody thinking about purchasing this CD , get Black Jesters "The Divine Comedy" instead. Moonlight circus is more heavyer than Black Jester and though they still have progressive tendancies they don`t deliver a satisfying result not to my tastes anyway! Outskirts is a waisted effort and fails to impress 4/10
