5 stars When the going get tough, the tough gets on going.

Man, is it me or Canadians bands seems to live longer than many other bands? Triumph, Rush, Gowan, Harmonium, Uzeb and Saga are good examples. They seems to grow unfatigable even after 25-30 years of good services. Gotta be that hockey and maple syrup....

Saga was to me an attractive band 'artwork' speaking. I thought the firefly logo was a catchy trademark and the LP covers fascinated me as a kid. But their songs...hmm, not a close as Rush. With time, I understood they're not playing the same leagues, nor the same crowd. Saga is more on the friendly side with an evident 80's sound, but this time, it's been hyped up on something!

This is not brain teaser by any means, but it's not fast food on the other hand. Saga can be surprisingly good musicians and songwriters; many times I've cranked up the volume thinking: 'Woo, this rocks!" And it does rocks. Against all odds, this is a very decent record.

Like Kansas, Toto or Styx, Saga has tremendous feet stomping potential: good (Mega Man style) guitar solos, catchy catchy catchy choruses, Gentle Giant winks and satisfying keyboard textures.

If you're looking for ONE simple but good, intelligent entertainment, Trust is a very good value. Most of the songs are pleasant and it's varied from rock to prog.

And to me, it's been a long time that I've had a soft spot for the 80's feel!
