4 stars SAGA's 2nd album "Images at Twilight" is up for debate whether or not it's as good as the first album, either way it's still a must have album. IaT starts with Chapter 3 "It's Time", Michael Sadler sings the chorus with anger "IT'S TIME... THIS TIME... MAKE ME NOW!!!" and near the end of the song you hear some nice interplay between Ian Crichton and Greg Chadd who would be their 2nd Keyboardist after Peter Rochon's departure. Ian's solo is really smokin' here... always thought this made a really great opening track. "You're Not Alone" is a fan favourite at concerts as Michael gets the crowd involved singing "You're Not!" "You're Not!" "You're Not Alone!!". Chapter 1 "Images" is a beautifully sad piece of piano music... lyrically this song will make you want to cry, the piano really makes that emotion come out, brilliant song. "Hot to Cold" is a tune that features some cool vocal interplay this time between Michael Sadler and possibly... Jim Crichton or maybe Greg Chadd, I never did find out... anyways this song was covered by another progressive rock band called "Chain" which received very high praise for their cover. In 2004, Michael Sadler was invited on to Chain's 2nd album "Chain.exe" to sing on a 38 minute track called "Cities" and also to take part in the SAGA cover of "Hot to Cold". Back to Images at Twilight, the album finishes with "Mouse In A Maze" which is a really mystic track, nice feeling on this one.
