4 stars Four stars and a half. This is a fine album with very well arranged songs but the sound they've chosen for this work is not what I like and it isn't marks the typical sound of the band. Here SAGA was trying to sound more pop album by album, and it's not a bad point, but I prefer the symphonic-rock side of the band. That's why I like 'The Security Of Illusion' so much, in my opinion that album means an before and an after on SAGA. Anyway, 'Heads Or Tales' is not a bad work, there ar great songs and it's good if you hear it watching the band from another angle, as a different style & concept. My favourites are the first two, "Social Orphan", "Scratching The Surface", "The Pitchman" and of course the unabridged version of "Catwalk" with the amazing Ian Crichton's solo at the las minutes of the theme. VERY GOOD ALBUM, BUT NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO START DISCOVERING THIS EXCELENT BAND, IN MY OPINION ONE OF THE BEST BANDS IN THE PROG HISTORY.
