5 stars This second album of the so talented band from NORWAY-CIRCUS MAXIMUS is simply STUNNING!I cannot believe my ears each time I make an audition of this album!I don't know what exactly this album has to make it be o catchy and interesting,but I realise in the same time that ISOLATION is a wonderful prog metal album,not at all an ordinary o!It has absolutely everything what a valuable prog metalalbum must have!The technical aspect is impressive and the musicianship of all the members is remarcable!MIKE ERIKSEN has a wonderful voice,very expressive and the guy is offering some spectacular vocal performances on the album-really breathtaking!The crystal clear production is also a very important aspect and the mature compositions are flowing in perfect harmony,in the end we realise that the timing of the album is just perfect,no weak song,SIMPLY PERFECT!!!The highlight of the album in MOUTH OF MADNESS a 12 minutes long composition,where we have something that could be called a musical masterpiece,where all the imagination of the guys is really unleashed-both componistic and in terms of playing!Scary technical capacities from the guys-CIRCUS MAXIMUS is a and of a huge potential!SANE NO MORE is another highlight of the album-a monster track-an instrumental one,where all the guys are delivering the whole technical capacities of their tremendeous talent!5 STARS without any hesitation to a memorable album,undoubtedly an album of reference of the genre-one of the best in the latest period of time!!
