In 1993, Michael Cretu was given an offer by producers to compose the full soundtrack of the motion picture Sliver, but he was unable to accept the offer. Instead, he came up with Carly's Song (Age of Loneliness in the album and video releases) and Carly's Loneliness, which were used in the movie and credited in the motion picture soundtrack as well. Sophomore album Cross of Changes was released and it it was also very succesful. Return to Innocence became one of the project's most popular international singles. It sampled vocals of a duet of Amis people singers without their permission. In 1994, song was covered by eurodance projects The Corporation and LaNotte.
