Review by hdfisch
2 stars This record is an early psychedelic pop album and obviously the very first one by this talented Hungarian band. Maybe a nice listen for a release from this era but nothing special really. Nevertheless at some places like in track 4 featuring some nice flute they are anticipating what to come from them later on. Else a nice mix of some more mellow and some more up-tempo folk inspired pop rock songs. One could rate it almost as fairly good but it's definitely not a good place to start with this band.

2 stars Debut album of OMEGA is a curious early release of the band where they acted as Hungary's answer to THE BEATLES. Mixing psychedelic and beat pop with hints of folk, this album only shows the bits of what would later follow. Performance is rather amateurish and songwriting underdeveloped but for the socialist country of the era, it is also an important document. Several songs did have hit potentials, notably the title tracks "Trombitas Fredi" and "Rettenetes Emberek". "Egy lany nem ment haza" contains excellent fuzzy guitar solo, while the closing ballad "Kis karacsony-Nagykaracsony" resembles gospel melody.


P.A. RATING: 2/5
