This is the first Saga album i truly love fron start to end in more than fifteen years. 'Trust' has that old sound that Saga is famous for. This is one of the best progressive rock albums of 2006.
Joining the band is new drummer Brian Doerner, who does a great job on the melodically driven "Back to the Shadows", which touches on AOR, pop, rock, and even the band's earlier prog releases, with excellently performed multi-vocal harmonies, both guitar and synth solos, and millions of keyboard-generated melodies overdubbed by three of the five members. The piano playing on "I'm OK" is agile and finds Saga going back to their earlier symphonic roots, highlighting Sadler's brilliant vocals. The guitar work on this song recalls Neal Schon on the first Journey album, utilising lots of tapping harmonics that are surrounded by sweet synth tones.
There is so much diversity here. The intense sound effects on "That's As Far As I'll Go"; the blues licks on "Time to Play"; the ballady acoustic number "My Friend" (complete with woodwind players); or the retro-prog heard on "On the Other Side" all contain elements that would normally never be combined on prog albums. But it's the Saga guys' years of experience and ear for melody and arrangement that blends everything together, where heavy, rumbling bass lines are juxtaposed with AOR-tinged vocals, acoustic interludes, and staggering interplay between guitars and keyboards.Read more ›
Now Trust is fabulous return to form, some songs instant and memorable, others growers. The production is one hell of a lot better than Marathon, House of Cards and Full Circle. An honorable mention must go to the artwork, simply gorgeous and so appropriate for a Saga record (albeit a butterfly rather than an alien dragonfly). This special edition comes in a stunning tri-fold digipak. A lot of thought and care went into the production of this album and it shows. The making of DVD is nothing more than some fluff interviews with Sadler and guitarist Crichton, but the latter's ghost track video to the song Trust shows just how effortlessly maestro he really is.
A great album that for me (up to 20/20) ranks up there with the first four.

Great album. It's probably the best thing they did since the eighties with "The Beginner's Guide.......".Published 20 months ago by Timfurno
If you are a SAGA fan, you like it - very typical though... nothing REALLY stands out. Seems like a required release to meet obligations.Published on September 28, 2013 by Steve
