4.0 out of 5 stars Progressive Pop. September 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I remember seeing the video for "On The Loose" on MTV back in '82 and instantly being hooked by the the big synthesizer sound the band had. Today, "Worlds Apart" still sounds unique compared to other progressive rock bands of the time. They don't exactly sound like Rush, King Crimson, Genesis, Yes, ELP. They don't sound like Styx, Supertramp, Journey, Survivor, Loverboy or Toto. I have most of Sagas albums and believe that "Worlds Apart" is one of their best recordings. Rupert Hine (Chris De Burgh, Howard Jones, Stevie Nicks, Rush, Milla and Duncan Sheik) produced, which probably helped the band. If you listen to their later recordings after 1985, their sound slowly diminishes in originality and catchiness. This album has great progressive pop songs like "On The Loose", "Wind Him Up", "Time's Up", "The Interview" and "No Regrets". If you like progressive pop or early 80's synth-rock music, you might enjoy this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars On my top 10 list of all time! March 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD of the most progressive and underrated bands of our time. Listen to "Wind Him Up" and "On The Loose" on this CD and I guarantee you will ask yourself, "I remember these songs! Whatever happened to those guys?" Well, they're still around and they are still making great music but unfortunately radio stations no longer play intelligent, riveting, songs anymore. So, if you're into groups like Kansas, Asia, Rush, Styx, or Yes, a new dimension of music awaits you...SAGA!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite July 21, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bought Worlds Apart initially in the cassette format. I wore the darn thing out I played it so much. So in the mid to late eighies when I got my first cd player Worlds Apart was one of the first three cds I bought. It to this day is my favorite musical recording by any artist.
Purchased the remaster version a couple months back and the sound quality is superb.
You probably remember On The Loose and Wind Him Up if you are reading this review. And if you have not yet bought this cd SHAME ON YOU.
If you don't own any other Saga recordings this is the one to get you started. It was there fourth release, and they are still doing it to this day. Lost track of how many cds they actually have.
My favorite tracks are about all of them. No weak ones. But I would say after On The Loose and Wind Him Up I probably like Amnesia best. It was the third single off the LP. If you haven't seen the video you must get Saga's dvd. All videos are included (minus Only Time Will Tell of Wildest Dreams) and that will definitely give you a great overview of all of Saga's music.
But while we are on this cd, go out and get it. Also included on the remastered cd is the video for Wind Him Up - a very nice bonus. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential Saga album April 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the history of the band Saga, this album must rank as the best representation of what the band is about. Their fourth album, it comes after three very progressive albums, and is sort of at the crossroads with the albums that would follow it. It has a more modern and powerful production than the first three albums, but still contains elements of the earliest progressive sound. The popularity of songs On the Loose and Wind Him Up brought name recognition in the US. Accompanying videos also helped. There are other great songs also such as Framed, Time's Up, and No Stranger.
If you are new to Saga, this is the album to start off with.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Defining Moment in Progressive Music March 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
A brief song-by-song review of one of Saga's most popular albums:
1. On The Loose: A very popular track that received quite a bit of air play on radio and MTV. A great pop song with a twist of Saga.
2. Wind Him Up: Another track that received alot of air play. Drummer, Steve Negus, experiments a little more with electronic drums here. Great instrumental section.
3. Amnesia: Honestly, one of the weakest tracks, but it has its moments. The repeat to fade ending can be annoying.
4. Framed: Wow! What an adventure! Figuratively speaking, Clark Kent turns into Superman as this song transforms from an everyday pop song to one of the most awesome instrumentals that Saga has ever done! Superb guitar work form Ian Crichton. Lightening fast drum rolls from Mr. Negus.
5. Time's Up: One of the more mellow songs on the album. Simple yet interesting. It has a great keyboard bass line that appears in various forms throughout the song.
6. The Interview: More upbeat than Time's Up. Simple, but it has very atmospheric keyboard and guitar work.
7. No Regrets: Quoting Mike Sadler from Saga's In Transit, "Jim Gilmour on clarinet!" A great ballad from a band that's not known for ballads.
8. Conversations: Incredible! The battle between Ian Crichton, Jim Crichton, and Jim Gilmour to play the most innovative guitar and keyboard sounds makes this song a great instrumental with the occassional lyric of "conversations!" in a synthesized voice.
9. No Stranger: A true masterpiece! The innovative keyboard and electronic drum sounds and incredible transitions to more rockin' midsection and then acoustic closure make the song a real landmark for Saga.
