Omega was formed in Budapest, Hungary and became perhaps the best known Eastern Bloc band. They have a large catalog some of which has been re-issued.

This album, a German import recorded in 1973, could be described as a mixture of hard and progressive rock. Side one opens with "Every Time She Steps In", a straight ahead, mid-tempo rocker and probably the most memorable song on the album. The rest of the album contains a mix of progressive keyboard work and guitar rock that, in some cases, brings to mind early Black Sabbath. All in all, an interesting listen.
