Omega, the most successful band in Hungary, one of the bands that were well selling albums outside the iron curtain. Formed in the 1962 (same year as The Rolling Stones) is one of the longest running (probably third longest) in rock history. Their single "Gyöngyhajú lány" was an international hit and covered by many bands including Scorpions. When it comes to "English language" albums you shouldn't expect anything new, but remakes of their Hungarian material. III in fact is a compilation of songs from three albums: Élő Omega, Omega 5 and Omega 6 - Nem tudom neved. Track listing: 1. Stormy Fire (Tűzvihar) 2. Spanish Guitar Legend (Spanyolgitár-legenda) 3. Go on the Spree (Egyszemélyes ország) 4. Remembering (Emlék - Csenddé vált szerelem) 5. Everytime She Steps In (Régvárt kedvesem) 6. Live as Long as (Addig élj!) 7. Just a Bloom (Eltakart világ - Egy perc nyugalom) 8. I Go away (Én elmegyek) 9. Fancy Jeep (Omegautó) I must give a note here - Élő Omega was released as an alternate for 200 évvel az utolsó háború után (200 Years After The Last War), because 200~ was banned by the government. Elo Omega was recorded on a very low quality equipment from a concert, very disliked by the band. As I said their English albums are remakes. But those remakes from Elo Omega are well done. Much, much better than Hungarian versions. Some excellent riffs, such as Everytime She Steps In and Fancy Jeep, fine keyboard on Stormy Fire and amazing bass breakdown on Just A Bloom. It is very heavy album, but only inside the Eastern European area, it is still far, far behind ELP or Deep Purple. But you will clearly hear the influence from UK hard prog rock bands. III is one of my favourite albums by Omega and will remain as a high priority recommendation to everyone, who wants to start with this incredible band. I'm gonna rate 7.5 out of 10 though, comparing to 200 Years After The Last War (eng) it is still for me their quest for the right direction. Here are my 2 favourite tracks: Stormy Fire and Just A Bloom.
