4 stars OK let's redress the balance somewhat. Saga are and never were as deep as say Rush, but have always had more to them than say Styx. Saga are capable of some great music, but also some dross. Lyrically, don't expect too much either.

On The Loose - This is Saga's equivalent of Rush's Subdivisions. Greate rocking opener. 5/5 Time's Up - Slightly naff and a bit commercial 3/5 Wind Him Up - Absolutely brilliant, superb interplay twixt guitar and keys 5/5 Amnesia - I'd rather forget this limp effort 1/5 Framed - Rather weak first half with vocals, but rips into a blazing instrumental section to close. Fantastic 3/5 The Interview - Another turkey 1/5 No Regrets - Featuring Jim Gilmore who sings with a rather weedy voice. Decent enough through 2.5/5 Conversations - Blistering instrumental 5/5 No Stranger - Odd mix of AOR and prog 4/5

Overall, a fine slice of guitar based rock with prog sensibilities. Just about 4 stars.
