3 stars Musically, you can't fault this album. All the current members of Saga are very, very good musicians. I particularly love the piano parts that flavour this release and the vocals are also very striking. But I can't make up my mind if I really like the album yet.

It is actually the first Saga album I bought, despite having been aware of them since way back in the 80s. I remember hearing them on the radio and on friend's hi-fi systems and thinking these guys aren't bad at all. So I suppose it's something of a crime that I'm only getting round to really listening to them now.

I'm listening to the album as I type and as each new song comes on I think, that's not bad but... Perhaps it's that too many of the tracks sounds too reminiscent of other acts with which I'm more familiar. There are elements here of Styx, Kansas, Enchant and even fellow Canadians - and progressive Gods - Rush. Not bad company to be keeping!

With time I think this one will grow on me more but, based on its initial impact, I'd say it's a 3 star release. It's one to check out if you like the bands I've mentioned above but there are other albums that should be added to your collection first.
