3 stars This is the debut record from EAST a Hungarian band who sing in their own language. I was very impressed with their second album "Huseg" where I think they made some improvements over this one.

"Overture" is an instrumental that is dominated by some excellent drumming and synth work. The sound of seagulls and waves at the end of the song is always a good thing with me. "Far Away With Clouds" is a beautiful song especially the synths and vocals.This is followed by a 90 second guitar solo.The song then completely changes as synths and guitars exchange solos to the end of the track. "Fly Up Now" is a good song that is pastoral at times with piano. "Blue-Black Vision" is all over the map. Including a thunder storm of all things !

"Diamond Bird" is a dreamy, laid back song wth mellow vocals.The vocals do get a little aggressive after 3 minutes. "Breath" is a very spacey, atmospheric instrumental.There really isn't a melody in this one as we hear mostly various synth sounds. "Look at Me" has a good beat as well as another extended guitar solo. Nice. "Message" gets a little heavy late but prior to that there is not a lot going on. "Epilogue" has organ throughout and the vocals are almost spoken."Expectation" is another favourite of mine on this record. Some great guitar and a good beat drives this song along.

This is a good album that most prefer over the follow up "Huseg". For me it's the opposite but you would do well to find that out for yourselves. Good band.
