AllMusic Review by

Angels Cry is Angra's first full-length album, a brilliant exhibition of progressive power metal featuring Andre Matos' incomparable voice and Kiko Loureiro's alternately crunching and soaring guitar. After a short instrumental, Angels Cry begins with "Carry On"; from the first moments of this song, it is evident that this is a group of unusually talented musicians. Other highlights include "Time," "Angels Cry," "Stand Away," "Lasting Child," and a faithful remake of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights." [The import edition offers three bonus tracks: "Angels Cry," "Carry On," and a different version of "Evil Warning."]
