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!
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.Read more ›
If you are new to Saga, this is the album to start off with.
