5 stars This is without a doubt the best album the band released in the nineties.

After the comeback of Jim Gilmour and Steve Negus, Saga weren't able to recreate the creative nor commercial succes they had in the early eighties.

The thing tha's most appealing about Generation 13 is the n-nonsense heavy rock production and the solid playing. The sound is overwhelming and it's a tour-de-force lasting an hour.

There's lots of keyboards and guitars, different voices representing different characters. (the music is based on a book). The music is adventurous and this will be the last time Saga tries new stuff. (axcept for their next where they experiment with nu-metal and housebeats, after that the try to re-create their past sound).

In my opinion Michael Sadler does his best singing job up-to-date. Also Ian Crichton shows once more he's up there with the other top-guitarists.

Best songs on the album include The Learning Tree, The Cross, We Hope You're Feeling Better.

The album is bets listenened form start-to-end, with headphones.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
