2 stars This first Savatage album is almost lost in the mist of times. I remember it on a tape I had in my collection. The music is quite good, but in the terms of heavy rock or heavy metal, not progressive rock. The album features enough riffs, enough speed and (Jon Oliva's) rough voice and screaming vocals. The band is at this point at the beginning of its life and the music features heavy guitar sounds and dark lyrics (very specific to a lot of heavy metal bands at that time). However, I enjoyed this album during "my old rock period of life" and even now I feel sometimes the need to listen to the famous track "Sirens" , the mystical song "I believe" and the nice ballad " Out on the streets". I don't feel the need to describe the songs of this album, because it isn't progressive music here. Conclusion: "Sirens" is an album only for "the old period of heavy metal" lovers and if you like heavy metal, go for it!

2 stars only!
