1 stars The worst thing about a music album is perhaps total lacking of purpose and goal. Even the most obvious commercial mainstream music products have their purpose - to entertain, produce fun and dance and let people feel good, at least for a short period.

What OMEGA did on this album is waste of time and plastic. Egy Életre Szól (A Story of Life) is not original music, it is not commercial, not offering any radio-friendly hits (the closer to this being Isten tudja), it is not particularly creative or groundbreaking, it is not progressive, experimental or even gay or funny. It is pathetic, boring, unfocused and lazy. Even the modern technolgy and computer programming did nothing to make any sense of this album.
