3 stars House of cards issued in 2001 is anatural follow up of the excellent Full circle. Same attitude as on previous album and aswell same as the next one Marathon, that means good all the way. Saga offers that typical progressive rock with some neo elements thrown in and some AOR passages, a distinctive sound since the beggining. House of cards is a good album for sure, I like this band a lot, own almost everything they released across the years. melodic music , not comercial but pleasent enough for most of the prog heads. Sadlers voice is excellent, and the musical arrangements aswell, like on opening track God knows and on The runaways. The beautiful short instrumental track named Watching the clock is another highlight for me, showing the fragile and melacholic side of Saga, some great piano moments here. All in all a good towards great album, in Saga manner, a sound that we are used since 1978. 3.5 stars.
