Modern English's second record, released in 1982, gave way to the band's greatest success with the breakout hit single, "I Melt With You." A marked departure from their debut just a year earlier, After the Snow was a keyboard driven new wave pop album. The LP retains an atmospheric and introspective mood that resonates today.
On the band's 2013 US tour, David Klein from Raleigh's Independent Weekly wrote, "Their non-‘I Melt With You' songs deliver a solid, dark new wave kick, more likely to give you a chill than to induce melting" and Aidan Levy from the Village Voice proclaimed, "...Modern English's diverse body of work shows an evolving aesthetic that transcends Thatcher-era malaise. Their electrifying live shows testify to frontman Robbie Grey's lasting charisma...."
