5 stars Omega's second album to feature previously recorded songs in the Hungarian language on the Bellaphon label. A good introduction to the more progressive-rock sounding era of their long career ( 42 years and counting! ) featuring everything from mellotrons, moog synthesisers and a 20 minute show piece which features sevral sections beginning with a moody opening building up to a bluesy center section with all kinds of drum and guitar fills and back to a moody ending. Side two contains three very different tracks which demonstrates different approaches this band took with their early seventies music from the synthesiser dominated HelpTo find Me to the heavier You Don't Know whose organ intro could easily be mistaken for a Deep Purple riff. The title track is very folky and is very reminicient of the earlier music they recorded in the late 60's. The only drawback, as on just about every English-language Omega album, is the sometimes very poor english text and hard to understand lyrics. Otherwise an excellent example of early 1970's progressive rock.
