5 stars Here is some very powerful prog indeed and my own personal favourite by AFTER CRYING. As on their previous albums, the music on "6" contains hints of jazz with some classical twists. You'll also hear some heavy-duty drum-based numbers, light pastoral piano waltzes, ominous vocal passages with haunting horns in the background, brassy wails that sear through the night, speed-driven organ notes that sound like KEITH EMERSON on fire, and many more undescribable lunacies. The last track, the 11-minute "Tribute to Keith Emerson", is almost like a mini rock opera. It features many themes and tempo changes and ends with soaring brass, in a colourful "fanfare" of sounds you won't soon forget. As for the few but rather heavily accented Hungarian vocals, they are either distracting or charmingly exotic, depending on your inclination.

The musicianship displayed on this album is exceptional, the compositions nothing less than genial and the production impeccable. Despite their eccentricity, the themes are all melodious and extremely addictive. This is the type of album you never tire of hearing over and over again.

Hibou | 5/5 |
