From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars More a variety of songs, some containing classic SAGA material in the On the Loose Period, others going into Radiohead territory, then Tool territory, some Neo Progressive as well.

Everything is well written and performed. Michael Sadler's voice holds up. New drummer Brian Doerner of heavy metal Helix fame is wise to mostly not play in that style, which adds a variety dimension to the sound.

4 stars because of the quality variety because quite frankly, I would never give any SAGA recording 5 stars (yet).

However, this is clearly the quality reformed SAGA material that does not care about getting played on the radio because of Canadian content regulations, especially since Canadian radio stations, Rush excepted, only play old recordings of Canadian veterans of the music scene, thus any new material is ignored no matter how good it is.
