Aмвяosiα - One Eighty (1980)

Whilst not as overtly progressive as this group's legendary self-titled from 1975, this turn-of-the-decade LP is probably their best pure Westcoast record: the biggest singles from here, 'You're The Only Woman' and 'Biggest Part Of Me', are both gorgeous FM radio staples and rank as two of the best songs to come out of the entire damn genre during its heyday. Their grand, proggy past rears itself on a number of great other songs too though, as the killer bass groove of 'Livin' On My Own' and the eerie keyboard chug of 'Kamikaze' demonstrate in spectacular measure.

Essential listening for fans of both Westcoast pop and crossover progressive rock!

NOTE: The below video is just the best I could find. My upload is a CD rip, not vinyl.
