5 stars A really impeccable album. Here we can hear this 5 men really near to the top of their inspiration. This is the album where I liked the Ian Crichton's guitar sound much than any other. And of course, the greatest riffs, licks, solos and very complex timing parts everywhere. The incomparable style of his brother Jim in the basses is almost in his maximum exponent, if not in the top. Steve Negus with his 70's inspired drumming but with a really, really solid sound just like Gerald Merkley said in the last review. And finally but not less important, the rail of every Saga's song: Gilmour back on the keyboards, and really back for good, just listen to the oriental tunes of the beautiful instrumental 'Voila!' and the best arrangements here and there. I consider this a masterpiece essential for any prog. rock lover as well as for anyother people who's looking for a different, creative, and with to much personallity way of rock!!
