5 stars I don't know what this other reviewer is thinking with only giving Network 2 stars?!? That's quite honestly insane, but I'll respect his opinion. Network has blown me away from my very first listen, it is by far the BEST work they have done since Worlds Apart and Heads or Tales!! I have been reading many reviews online and the thoughts are all the same this album is better than the last 3 releases: Full Circle, House of Cards (only by a little) and Marathon. I can't find a weak point to this album, the rockers rock, the ballads are some of the best they've ever written and they used Moogs for the first time in a long time. Michael Sadler's voice just gets better with age, Ian Crichton is playing some really killler guitar suff for example on "Keep It Reel" he has a tasty little piece near the end where everyone who has heard the tune swears it's Eddie Van Halen! (Ian is better than EVH!!) I think Christian Simpson's drumming is a welcome addition to the band, Steve Negus is a great drummer and founding member but Christian has done a heck of a job stepping into Steve's shoes and being able to fit in as well as he has. My fav tracks are: "On The Air", "Keep It Reel", "If I Were You", "Don't Look Now", "Believe" and "Don't Make A Sound", Network in my opinion doesn't dissapoint every track is golden here. If there is 1 SAGA album you should get from the past 10 years this is it!!!
