1 stars Pain but no pleasure, that's what I feel when listening to this very poor release. Now that the band has returned to what they are good for with Trust, I know that in the future they won't do something like this piece of crap again. The 90s were very hard times for Saga, at least until the final release of the decade Full Circle which is their only great work during this period (sorry but Generation 13 is a bit disappointing to my mind). On the opposite,The pleasure and the pain is their worst album of the decade and of their career. A techno rythm and some uninspired lyrics make every song at best fillers of Behaviour or Wildest Dreams...A complete disaster! But it's too easy to bash such an album, I prefer stopping here and only recommend you to avoid it and to concentrate on all their amazing releases of the 80s and 00s (House Of Cards & above all Trust). -1 star (0 for the album & -1 for the atrocious and ridiculous cover "artwork")
