3 stars A pretty interesting and original piece of music. As usual for After Crying, due to their classical music education, this style is the cornerstone of their music. The music is quite experimental, no fixed structure, recurring motives and NO rock guitar at all! The vocals sound strange, the first song reminds me of "ELP" vocal and the accent is quite horrible - but what can you expect when the Iron curtain had fallen just 1 year ago? The first track is at least quite dynamic. The second track is more conventional with a steady structure and interesting melody. Then comes virtuosic classical piano performance in "Confess your beauty" - really a standout track. Not so good vocals is at least balanced by sparse instrumentation in the next short track. The last track is an attempt at another progressive track - opus. Brass instruments sound like fanfares. Thankfully, the listener can fully focus on the instruments as there are no vocals.
