The last great Saga album before a mini collapse in terms of quality. More radio friendly than earlier works, This contains the superb Flyer with its light chorus and catchy riff. This album still contains the excellent musicianship and songs albeit in a slightly poppier direction. Difficult to compare or pidgeonhole-Saga are unique.

After the mega 'Worlds Apart' album Saga had a hard job to beat. This doesn't, but still contains some of their strongest songs. 'The Flyer' and the excellent 'Catwalk' to mention 2. As Rockhead mentions above Saga were moving into a more Aor/Pop territory, so at the time this one took a little getting into after the previous releases. Still played regularly here though and definately up there with some of there other stronger releases.

Ian Crichton's wild solo on The Pitchman has to be heard to be believed... Great album from start to finish with stand-out tracks being The Pitchman, The Flyer, Social Orphan, Cat Walk (Unabridged version), and Scratching The Surface... Why they left this sound behind to venture into the limp territory explored on Behaviour is a mystery for the ages...

Catwalk est l'un des meilleurs titres de rock prog jamais composé ! Un classique.

From: lalorock Date: August 26, 2007 at 17:50
Fantastico album, lo tengo en Lp de vinilo desde el 87,SAGA posee su estilo propio combinando un rock progresivo con ciertos toques AOR,pero muy a su manera,los teclados atmósfericos y los solos de guitarra enrevesados son la marca registrada del grupo los cuales nos dejan asombrados sino fijense en ese temazo Cat Walk,The Flyer gran apertura con unos riffs asesinos y esos coros llenos fuerza,Social Orphan,Scratching the surface y The Pithchman delicias llenos de cambios de ritmo y gran calidad.

From: TONI MALLORCA Date: October 20, 2007 at 5:41
el disco del cambio!!!!! aqui dejan su lado mas progresivo para ofrecernos un album con un sonido mas hi-tech aor al estilo de bandas como eight seconds the arrows o the fixx. lamentable!!

This album is awesome! Saga is one of my favourite bands, this is a different work from their earlier releases, but this is great in terms of composition and performance, my first SAGA record, and my introduction to a one of the greatest bands in the world, this music is like no other, Great songs, "Cat Walk", The Flyer", "Social Osphan", "The Writing", "Pitchman", etc, all the songs are fantastic, and Ian Crichton is superb as always with his guitar. A perfect "different" (call it pop album) from SAGA. Well done boys!
