AllMusic Review by

Like their idols Dream Theater, Mayadome update the epic sweep of progressive rock with post-Van Halen guitar theatrics and a post-Queensryche lyrical attack. Mayadome doesn't quite have the grasp on composing -- certain sections of songs work well as individual pieces yet they don't cohere into a singular work -- while their lyrics occasionally cross the line from pretentious to silly. Nevertheless, Paranormal Activity demonstrates their musical promise and illustrates that the band could achieve some terrific results with a little more maturity.
