4 stars This is the first album by the After Crying, since 2003. The Creatura consists four suites. All song cycles begins with overture of grandiose full orchestra. The music is on this album enough eclectic, it contains hints of jazz with some classical and folk twists. We can discover some crimsonish tracks: Rude, Rain God, Three Desires. The floating Free Fall has a slight Genesis tone. The vocal of Zoltan Batky is excellent, he has warm voice. The trumpet playing of the Bal√?¬°zs Winkler are gorgeous. Then The Stones Will Sing: this is a five minutes cello piece from Peter Pejtsik, it's harkens back of the After Crying's primaeval. The Illusionist is very unexpected, tango style song. Despite the miscellaneous mood, the Creatura has a cohesion, it is in a great part due to the very intelligent lyrics. According to Gabor Egervary, this is a concept album about an alien, named Creatura, who arrives from the another planet. This being tries to understand the humankind of the attitude of mind. I think, Creatura is most accessible from the After Crying's catalog.
