4 stars Well, what do you know!? This is actually the first Saga album in more than fifteen years that I actually like. I was a huge Saga fan in the early eighties, had all their LPs, saw them a couple of times perform live, but gradually my enthusiasm died with every album that was less progressive and more mainstream untill they didn't interest me at all. I kept following them in the press, even bought a few CDs that were supposedly a return to form (Generation 13), but those I played only a few times before relegating them to the cupboard.

This CD could change all that, because the Saga boys have now completey returned to their old sound. Most of the songs could have been outtakes from their first five albums and I don't mind at all because the songs sound fresh despite that. I really like the extended sections, the greater emphasis on synths, the numerous synth vs guitar duels, etc. For the first time in god knows how many years hearing a new Saga CD actually brought a smile to my face.
