3 stars ""So when the nineties come/ We'll do what must be done/ And when the nineties come/ We'll sing a different song""

These are the words from the chorus of the piece The Nineties from the previous album from 1989 The beginners guide to throwing shape. Indeed a diffrent mood and a diffrent orentation of the band - musically speaking. This is the first Saga album from the '90's so they tried here to be more prog rock than on previouses albums who were more pop with prog leanings. Well despite of an almost 4 years gap between this one and previous one , The security of illusion is better than the mid to late '80's Saga albums. As i said on other Saga reviews , i enjoy very much their music no matter if they were almost down in mid '80's or if they were on the top of the prog scene in the early'80's, the music to me was always top notch. So here we have a more rockier album with a good doze of progressive music, something that Saga always done in early years. This album has a solid sound, great performance as always from Michael Sadler and Jim Gilmour on keyboards and great solos and riffs made by Ian Crichton, and do not forget the excellent prestaion and solid drumming of Steve Negus . As a whole all the pieces are great but with a plus on:Mind Over Matter,The Security of Illusion and Days Like These, the rest are also good. Finally this album is without question a good one, but i can't give more than 3 stars, i prefer early Saga albums and those after Pleasure & pain from 1997. 3 stars for Security of illusion.
