Apex Publishing – “…might be a high point in the band’s already stellar and legendary career… What they have produced is a memorable album that blends historical realism with the recognizable fantastic elements that has helped make Midnight Syndicate one of the most popular instrumental-only groups in the world.”
Darkest Radio – “…a triumph for Midnight Syndicate… up there with my favorites… 5 out of 5! Every carnival has a duality to it… Midnight Syndicate captures that duality perfectly. They harness the fantasy, the mystery, the sinister darkness, and weave it into a tapestry of unnatural phantasmagoria.”
Bastards of Horror – “…beautiful but downright horrifying great music that is a must buy. 4 out of 4 stars.”
Horror News – “…featuring beautifully sonic pieces of terror and mystery, ‘Carnival Arcane’ manages to haunt with a fun edge oozing evil clowns, sideshows and big top menagerie.”
Sandman Cinema – “…Midnight Syndicate sets out to take ‘listeners to the Lancaster-Rigby Carnival, a turn-of-the-century traveling circus with more than a few skeletons in its closet.’ And they succeeded magnificently… a great story-telling CD that works on multiple levels.”
Dr. Gangrene’s Tales from the Lab – “I can’t stop listening to it!”
Nightmare City Halloween Radio – “Another tour-de-force from Midnight Syndicate! …their best work ever!”
