3 stars After the Fire when they releasing their first album in 1978 named Signs of change they already having few years in musical bussines as a christian prog rock band. Taken influences from bands such as ELP, Genesis , Flash, Druid - After the Fire first album is the only prog album from their catalogue. After this release they gone new wave, lose some key members from the band and otained for a a short band name ATF Now, Signs of change is a pretty good moog and hammond orientated prog rock with nice instrumental balance on every piece. The voice of Andy Piercy is fiting very well here. Overall not a weak moment hre, but aswell not a groundbreaking release either, is a decent late '70s prog rock album with christian lyrics. A well desearved 3 stars maybe rounded to 3.5 for pieces like Pilgrim with a folk touch and complex instrumental section or Dance of the Marionette. A fairly forgotten band and release in prog circles.
