Review by LearsFool
5 stars In my humble opinion, this is simply the greatest live album of all time. How could this unseat the great prog live collections, and the non-prog greats such as "Stupidity", "Land Speed Record", "Frampton Comes Alive!", the Allman's "At Fillmore East", even "At Folsom Prison"? The main secret, much like that of Cash's great live record, is the audience. Turns out the best live LPs have the best audiences. Here, thousands of Magyar fans of the great Omega turned out to the Kisstadion in Budapest to hear their favourite band live and loud, and for most of the concert they sang along! Only Freddie Mercury could better drum up a stadium than Omega. And Omega, on top of that, just play smashingly. They take their wonderful studio material and ramp up the skill and wonder to the levels of Yes, Genesis, and ELP when they played live. The whole opening sequence just inundates the Kisstadion and modern listeners in some of the very best of prog, magical stuff that swallows one whole into a fantastic musical world. This stands as one of the greatest guitar statements. Just excellent, just wonderful, get the original Magyar nyelv version and prepare to listen to the lost sibling to "Yessongs", "Seconds Out", and "Solar Music Live".
