5 stars AC has created a very complex and beautiful music, but throughout its career more than a dozen records, the music style is constantly changing. Some albums are very dark and beautiful, creating a very quiet ambience with violins, plus wonderful keyboards and guitars. (In AC's music, it can be said that the guitar basses are all background, and the protagonists are the cello violins. Flutes and various numbers, even guitar bass at the second album. Other albums can obviously make people feel the influence from ELP and KC. The band also made songs to pay homage to Emerson, and there are clips of kc in the music from time to time. AC is often considered to be a classical music band. The music is very refined and calm. Although the use of various classical instrumental music makes them seem to be far away from the avant-garde rock, it is still very much whether it is an arrangement or an album change. "Avant-garde," especially those with ELP and KC (who had a full-time live performance of "In the Court of the Crimson King"), made them widely acclaimed in the avant-garde rock community. On the band's official website, the band calls itself Modern classical music, which is modern classical music. AC has been in existence for nearly 30 years, and has nearly 20 albums (including studios and on-site). They have used their own music to prove that rock and classical music are not incompatible. Whether it is indoor classical music, modern rock, popular music, symphony, or many other ancient and modern music schools, AC can synthesize them into an organic whole, which shows the freedom of art and the talent of the band itself. The beginning of the band was inspired by the history of European music, such as Bach, Beethoven, Bartok (Bella Viktor Janos Bartok was born in Hungary, Nagy San Miklos (present-day Romania) ), one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, is the leader of Hungarian modern music.) The classical music, as well as the modern music of ELP, KC. The AC composers use the common language of music to create works that combine profound thought and artistic qualities. The "modern classical music" it presents can be used for both audiences and future audiences. They have also repeatedly won some high awards in Hungary. The studio album titled "Show" in 2003, but it has nothing to do with the scene, only the title is Show. From the concept of the album to understand, it seems that AC is talking about the grand performance of human beings in modern society, showing humanity. Past and present of the past. This 72-minute album can be said to be quite modern. In "6," AC has already demonstrated that it is not impossible to be modern and not to rock, but they would rather not want to. In the Show, we can see that AC is not only willing to rock. And rock is fashionable. The opening song titled New World Coming seems to be in the modernity of the declaration. This is a very rocking song, but the opening song once again fell into darkness and silence in the wake of the AC. Various classical instrumentals took turns and created. Gloomy and graceful atmosphere, but the album went back to the middle and late KC style when the album was in the middle. The turbulent and violent use of drums and synthesizers was out of the blue and hooked. The longest on the album is the Secret Service for 15 minutes, and I think the best track should be Remote Control. This song seems to be the core of the album, telling the modern media alienation of human nature. The album also used Dvorak's "New World" melody and KC's "EASY MONEY." The panda brother is free to translate the lyrics of the album. Of course, it may be because AC is so modern that it makes people feel "forget the heart."
