4 stars Ignore the poor reviews!! People (even many prog fans) don't like something just because it's different. Yes, folks, this is a very different Saga album. On to the review . . . .

I was listening to this album on the way to work this morning and words cannot express the amount of energy it has! It's absolutely fabulous! The only reason that this album does not deserve five stars is Where's My Money. Although it is a fun song, it really doesn't flow with the rest of the album and should have been left as a b-side. I love the heavy, raw sound that Ian uses and there are some very innovative keyboard sound on this album as well. Songs like Heaven Can Wait, Welcome To The Zoo, and Fantastically Wrong really rock! And the modern rendiition of You're Not Alone with alternate lyrics and meatier instrumentation is great too! Their energetic performance of George Harrison's Taxman is quite fun with a little humor thrown in via the voice of Sam from Generation 13. A big two thumbs up from a person who as been a Saga fan since 1983.
