4 stars Third album of this famous canadian band named Silent knight. This was released just prior to another fine Saga album World's apart. Saga always has a combination of polished pop and symphonic prog a la Genesis, and the raw riffs of Rush that made them famous in the early '80. They combine very well their influences to a concise structure of songs that never sounds too indulgent. Maybe Asia did same thing in the early '80, but Saga did it better. Here Saga proves that is a lot of virtuosity on this album, just take a listen to Don't Be Late and Compromise, the best tracks from here, of course the rest are good too. I find it very enjoyble, the first 5 saga albums i find it essential in any collection, this one is one of those albums that i never get tired. 4 stars and recommended, among the best Saga albums and in the '80.
