Review by erik neuteboom
4 stars This acclaimed legendary Hungarian prog rock band made some beautiful albums in the Seventies but 'live' they were at their best. This originally 2-LP from '79 (on the 1-CD release the song "Rush Hour" has been deleted) showcases an inspired and powerful performance (more than 50.000 spectators!) from OMEGA, playing most of finest material like "Gammapolis" (great howling guitar licks), "Help To Find Me" (strong Minimoog solo with sensational use of the pitch bend button), "Time Robber", "High On The Starway" (rock and roll with heavy duo guitar work) and "Metamorphosis II + II. The massive crowd reacts very enthusiastic to the warm, melodic and varied 'heavy progressive rock' featuring tasteful keyboards, fiery and sensitive electric guitar and inspired Hungarian/English vocals. I'm pleased with the typical melancholic mood from Eastern Europe in some songs (like "Russian Winter"), very original that makes OMEGA to a band worth to discover for the younger 'prog heads'.
