Review by Tarcisio Moura
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Watch out, this NOT the best of Saga. In fact, Saga Greatest Hits would be a much more fitting title, since this compilation shows only the pop side of Saga. All their hits are here, of course, but this band from Canada had much more to offer than pop songs, even though they are good ones. Since their debut in the late 70īs Saga had a strange mix: radio friendly pop songs side by side with stronge progressive tracks. Although they did two albums in the mid 80īs that are very commercial, their later output was almost pure progressive, making this CD even more awkward and misleading.

So, I canīt really recommend this album for anyone wxcept the mainstream pop fan. Mind you, the songs are good. Even when Saga went commercial they embelished their already catchy songs with tasteful arrangements, excellent vocals and skillfully playing. However, they have far better stuff, specially for the progressive listener. If you want a good Saga compilation that make justice for their work try Defining Moments (volume 1).

2 stars Starting all over?

Provided with their hits Wind him up, On the loose and Humble stance this is only a mediocre rock/pop album anyhow and not enjoyable for a proghead. We have polished and radio friendly songs in the majority which are nice to hear but by all means - you cannot be excited. To get familiar with the superior aspects of the band there are offered much better compilations, f. e. you can start with 'Remember When' from 2006 with a mix of good studio and live songs.

So there is nothing more to say: disappointing - I recommend to beware of this album.
