Circus Maximus is a progressive metal band formed by the Haugen brothers, who appear on guitar (Mats) and Drums (Trus), Mats' old school buddy Glen Moller on bass, Michael and the mastermind Espen Storo on keyboards. They're from Norway, who has given us great progressive bands like Ark and Pagan's Mind, for example.

why do you rate it an 8 if it's lame? 8 means "very good"; 7 means "good".

I love this album, one of the best progressive metal albums out there.

OK, lame ain't the right word. Lemme say "not as memorable as Sin and GOTE". Still, nothing wrong with them, very enjoyable album. But seeing that this bugs you, I'll lower it to 7.

It does not bug me, but seeing a high rating (because 8 is a high one) associated with a negative connotation like "lame" does not make much sense.

Maybe they were just paying homage to a superior band.

Rating: 8 Their best album, in my opinion. I would probably pin it down to the different keyboardist. I much prefer the style of keyboards in this album than in the more recent two. Glory of the Empire is their best song by a mile. The atmosphere, the grandiose strings (ok, keyboard strings), the imperious guitar work; It just helps paint an awesome picture, that fit the lyrics perfectly. 'Tis fantastic.
