Synopsis

Album Description
It must be their unique mix of years of experience, a never-ending supply of great song ideas and their unique overall sound that accounts for the fact that Saga have been at the very top of the Progressive Rock music scene for over 25 years. Whenever Michael Sadler, Ian and Jim Crichton and Jim "Daryl" Gilmour get together to play music, the result is always unmistakably Saga. After achieving hit-record success in the 80?s with songs like Wind Him Up and On The Loose, Saga continue to soldier-on into the new millennium. Inside Out Music is proud to now have the band as part of our family. This North American version of the latest Saga release, Network, will contain an exclusive bonus DVD with a 5.1 mix of the entire album.

CD Reviews

Saga in top form
E. Minkovitch | Montreal, Quebec | 06/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album walks a fine line between progressive metal and neo-prog that Saga is best known for. Have no fear though, this is Saga in very fine form and at the top of their technical if not creative powers, every song being at least good or better, although the sound is not traditional Saga from the '80s or from breakthrough albums like Full Circle or House Of Cards. It is heavier, the production is way different, with metal-style guitar dominating the mix on some tracks; the snare for some reason very hard and very much up front; Sadler's voice sounding different, more distant and less dramatic. Overall sound is less processed and more live. Songwriting is of very good quality, quite complex and progressive on most tracks, with a cornucopia of instrumental parts - enough to satisfy the most demanding Saga fan - although it seems not to be as ispired as on other albums: all songs are solid if safe Saga material and none really outstanding. There is less emphasis on the tight keys/drums/guitar interplay, but we are still treated to a couple of keyboard solos and mind-boggling speed passages. Once again, Ian Crighton shows what a monster guitar player he is - his mastery of every fretboard technique is more complete than ever. The package is gorgeous and the booklet interesting and informative, and 5.1 mix is there for the true audiophile, although I admit that it is perfectly useless to me, but for the same price, why not? A definite gem in any Saga collection, although not in the first five Saga albums I would buy. I would recomment getting Trust before Network, it is one of the top Saga albums of all time."
