5 stars This gets 5 stars for what I would consider in the top 3 for neo.prog. A nice balance between the old and the new...somewhere in between mid-period Camel, I Robot-Alan Parsons, & light jazz fusion. Never really gets heavy until the end on Careful Where You Step. Also, a bit of a musical nod to mid-period Gentle Giant on Help Me Out which is quirky in a very GG way. I never really considered Saga neo.prog because I always thought they thought they were a refinement of the genre while making it more accessible to masses without sounding like Styx or Starcastle. Here, Saga sounds like Saga...and no one else. Ian Crichton takes the cake as one of the most underrated prog. guitarists, especially on Compromise. Listen and learn, folks!
