While I still respect this band after all these years. I have to say that this is not one of their strongest releases. There's more pain here than pleasure. Each song is straight forward. What you hear is what you get. Meaning, you don't get anything that's typical Saga. None of the dueling guitar/keyboard speed melodies here. If you're looking for that, you'll have to look towards earlier releases (Worlds Apart, Heads or Tales, Generation 13) or later releases (House of Cards).
This is a pretty straight forward rock CD. There's not much in the way of Saga progressivism on this CD. Although, on Gonna Give It To Ya, they try some Yes-ish type progressive music. As another poster said, it sounded too much like other bands and not enough like Saga. Considering the quality of the previous release, Generation 13, I'm sure Saga wanted to take a break and do something less intense and structured. This appears to be the result of that break. Later albums past this one, Saga gets back to their roots much more, yet with a more updated and raw sound.
All in all, this album is worth listening to if you are an avid Saga buff. But, I recommend that if you are new to Saga, you should check out Worlds Apart, Heads or Tales, House of Cards, Marathon or even Generation 13 (as depressing a story as it is) before this release to hear the best of Saga musically and get a feel for their real style. Overall, I gave this three stars simply because they diverted way too much away from their roots. They didn't even throw any old Saga on even one of the songs just to give us a bone.
