Welcome to the Absurd Circus is the ninth album from Italy's Labyrinth and the follow to Architecture of a God, an album I thoroughly enjoyed. The band's blend of progressive and power metal is intact, and their sound is as smooth as ever. The whole album is catchy and melodic with songs like "Word's Minefield" and "Dancing with Tears in My Eyes" standing out in those categories. The songwriting is perhaps not quite as amazing as on Architecture of a God, but occasionally steps up with some impressively emotional vocal lines ("One More Last Chance"). Welcome to the Absurd Circus is a solid effort from Labyrinth, sure to easily please longtime fans as well as those of Vision Divine, Kamelot, Secret Sphere, etc.
