Omega - 1981 Az Arc
'Az Arc' was a big deal In Hungary and the Eastern Bloc, plenty of television appearances to promote the hits and a captivating video for the title song which can all be seen on youtube. Judging by this album's AOR qualities, Omega's space themed pomp rock was abandoned for a more direct and commercial AOR direction to coincide with the new decade's ambitions.

Omega - 1981 Working
So we have a strange situation with a classic European AOR act at their commercial peak, without an English language record contract in place. WEA Germany came to the rescue with a one album deal, which saw Omega head to Frankfurt. Safely ensconced in Hotline Studios with Peter Hauke in the producer's chair, Omega set about creating a more direct English AOR album for the 1981 market.

Omega - 1982 Omega XI
'XI' was another Eastern Bloc success, despite being widely regarded as their weakest album.

Omega - 1986 A Föld Árnyékos Oldalán
Hungarian AOR kings Omega had eluded me until recently (thanks Eric), so having finally taken possession of this disc by way of beginning the process of collecting their AOR material, why not shed some GD light onto the band?

Omega - 1987 Babylon
As promised a while back, here's the next chapter from the iron curtain's top AOR legend, Hungary's Omega. Following on from 1986's AOR ice blast 'A Föld Árnyékos Oldalán', 1987 saw Omega begin work on the 'Babylon' album.

Omega - 1988 Platina (1977-1987)
After 1987's towering AOR outing 'Babylon', Omega went on a sabbatical but not before unleashing this beauty, spanning their essential AOR years.

Omega - 1996 Transcendent
'Transcendent' has become a 70's AOR classic for me, and a very welcome one considering how barren that decade was compared to the 80's. Omega seem to possess a sense of melody that is both triumphant and melancholy, a tendency that is in very strong evidence all over this album.
