4 stars This album introduced me into SAGA and damn it, is this CD rocky!!!

The structure of each title may be not that complex, most songs contain not more than four parts, but these parts seen indivdually are not straight-constructed, the entire album is ambitious, as each good prog-album should be. The opener "How Long" might be the most rocky song on this CD, other outstanding tracks are the great "Humble Stance", the outrageous "Give 'Em The Money", also a very very rocky tune and the song "Tired World (Chapter Six)". You can feel the influences of Gentle Giant all the time, but this doesn''t mean that SAGA hadn't its own distinctive, unique sound. The chant fits perfectly to the powerful music of the band, all in all the album is a felicitous work.
