5 stars Probably the best Saga recording if not entirely typical of their sound. I remember getting this sucker back to my teenage bedroom when it first came out and being blown away. The opener `On the Loose` is arguably one of the finest examples of existential uplifting prog. Not only are all the tracks romantic barnstormers but little complicated melodies abound. Unison guitar synth riffs tinkle away. The moog bass is well up front, its majestic.I asked Jim Crichton who his inspiration was and unsuprisingly the mid 70`s studio one man band recordings of Stevie Wonder was his reply. The mix and production are first rate. Unfortunately some of the drum and keyboard patches now sound a little dated but... memories are made of this!
