Prog Reviewer
5 stars This one is it: After Crying's fantastic, wonderful masterpiece of symphonic prog, crafted with such a mastery of classical music, rock, and some jazz and ambient influences as to put every other band in the genre to shame. With a gloomy and mysterious atmosphere, the album focuses on instruments not traditionally at centre stage in rock music even in a symphonic prog context - oboes, cellos, violas, trombones, trumpets, bassoons and all the rest - and presents an emotional rollercoaster ride through moments of tranquil reflection and periods of intense, startling business. With this one album, After Crying make the classic symphonic prog bands of the 1970s look like utter children messing about with things they don't understand in comparison to the stately, mature, and exquisite performances captured here.
Warthur | 5/5 |
