Non-Prog Rock/Pop

"Not a lot of prog here. This album is more 80s pop-rock than anything else, but 80s pop-rock can be good, too, and this album certainly is. If you like Belinda Carlisle, 80s Yes or 80s Genesis, you might like this one, too, and Depeche Mode fans might also find this album appealing."

Thoughtful Quirky Prog Rock

"It's hard to believe that this is the same band that released "Behaviour" and "Heads and Tales". Gone is any trace of 80s pop, and there are proggy elements aplenty - there are even some hard rock and metal elements to be found here (enough for my local record store to categorize SAGA as a metal band :-/). I really enjoy listening to this perfectly balanced album."

Prog Rock

"I really like this album. It really manages to walk the razor's edge between prog and mainstream, and contains countless interesting twists and turns, never becoming too quirky for the novice prog fan. It reminds me a bit of the obscure "Point of No Return" by Zaragon, and Zaragon were probably inspired by Saga."

Dynamic Modern Prog-Adj Art Rock

"This is my first exposure to Saga, and I enjoyed it. Most songs don't really grab me - they're kind of simplistic and (at least to me) not very interesting, but still decent. But a couple of songs are really nice, and more progressive than you would expect from a band that had their biggest hits in the 80s with a very much AOR/Stadium Rock oriented style. The good songs on this album reminded me much of Enchant, with a dose of (Non-Prog) Toto thrown in. Light Prog, but still!"
