Back in 1994, this band was very active, and this would be their 3rd studio album, and on it they would pay hommage to the great ELP, with some very intense keyboard dominated prog, led by Csaba Vedres on an array of keyboards. The first two song titles should tell you that they are inspired by ELP, 01 Manticore érkezése, 02 Manticore érkezése II. Have some heavy intense prog, with similar busy drumming in the vein of Palmer, yet the band does not stay entirely in that style, these musicians are far to competent to merely try cloning an original classic, they make sure that through the entire album that you are listening to After Crying.

While the classical elements are the obvious comparisons, what AC is doing with Csaba is taking the classical/symphonic virtuoso sounds and creating something very new and exciting, and while this era, and album may not be their most ambitious work, it rates as good as most anything they have done to date. This is still a vastly underrated band, and well worth revisiting for most anyone that enjoys classically inspired progressive rock, the musicians are excellent, and the ideas brilliant.
