5 stars Maybe not the world's most proggy album, but the pro-music on this record is so different to what we have known before.

Short, heavy, aggressive approach wich would eventually inspire multiple progmetalbands.

'Humble Stance' by itself is worth the purchase of this one.

There are a few downsides, the production is below average and flat, there's a lack of emotion and depth. Michael Sadler sounds like a churchboy.

But the keyboard/guitar extravanganza on Ice Nice and Humble Stance are simply brilliant.

Listen to the Gentle Giant-inspired closing track and tell me this isn't prog. Later on Saga would introduce more and more poppy songs like the starting track How Long wich is simply silly to say the least.

Lyrically Saga already shows that they have stories to tell.

This is the start of something good, wich a least lasts till the 1986.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
