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!"
