Review by apps79
3 stars 1994 was by far Steve McBabe's most prolific period with the musician being in an absolute creative orgasm, releasing one cassette after the other.''Crying to the Future'' was his fifth production and the second from the year.McBabe still plays all instruments and is responsible for all the arrangements and album's production.The album was reissued in CD format in 1999 by Proximity Records and since 2007 it is available as a digital download with a bonus track/guitar mix of the eponymous track.

His style was always defined by the evident CAMEL influences in a more Neo Prog approach, resulting an album full of nice melodies, intricate arrangements and strong resemblances to PENDRAGON and CYAN.His guitar touch has obvious references to the style of ANDY LATIMER, ROB REED and NICK BARRETT, but McBabe is sure to accompany his inspired hooks with tons of keyboard and piano lines.All of his compositions have something to offer, going from flashy performances with synthesizers on top and passages with his guitar in evidence to piano-based introductions and melodic parts with some nice solos.What always spoils his early efforts is definitely the poor and very mechanical drum programming and at moments the dull keyboard sounds.The final taste though remains positive, nice modern Neo/Symphonic Prog with a good sense of intricacy and melody.

This man was really talented still since his early releases.''Crying to the Future'' is another sign, which shows that, if you love what you are doing, you can come up with a great result, even if you are all alone.Recommended to fans of Classic, Neo, Symphonic and Melodic Prog.
