3 stars What to say about OMEGA?

Not much. In fact i've just listened to it and feel a bit melancolical; exactly like when you meet again an old friend lost from sight, whith whom you knew ups and downs, and you realize things have remained exactly the same.

The album is quite like the ALPHA stuff with a little bit of poppy stuff from ASTRA.

So clearly, it's not bad, very easy listening, always pleasant, never boring but never enthralling either. And no trace of somme progressive influence or past.

Therefore, let's mention "light the way", good number a little more tricky than the others, a way amid-lit by the howe's guitar and especially, let's mention "there was a time", in my mind the best piece of the album; darker, more serious ant the only prog teinted one. the less "radio songed" too, probabaly why i like it more then all.

"Emily" is pretty catchy but won't wake you up in the middle of the night.

For the rest, as i said, pretty good to hear while painting the wall or cooking but not to seat in the center of a 7.1 theater system and only listen to.

The pure ASIA fans will like, those who want to get back in '83 too. The others will paint or cook , with pleasure indeed, but it remains painting and cooking.
