Saga - Wildest Dreams 1987
8.4
Non-Prog Rock/Pop
Not a lot of prog here. This album is more 80s pop-rock than anything else, but 80s pop-rock can be good, too, and this album certainly is. If you like Belinda Carlisle, 80s Yes or 80s Genesis, you might like this one, too, and Depeche Mode fans might also find this album appealing.

The saga continues with this semi-hard-edged prog rock album.

Saga - Images at Twilight 1979

Prog Rock
A varied album with ups and downs (more ups, fortunately), "Images at Twilight" is perhaps a bit bound to the 80s in terms of sound and composition/performance, but that doesn't necessarily disqualify it - it's certainly a good listen.

Technical Prog Rock
It's hard to believe that this is the same band that released "Behaviour" and "Heads and Tales". Gone is any trace of 80s pop, and there are proggy elements aplenty - there are even some hard rock and metal elements to be found here (enough for my local record store to categorize SAGA as a metal band :-/). I really enjoy listening to this perfectly balanced album.

Saga - Heads or Tales 1983

Non-Prog Rock
Moderately interesting album with some great guitar work here and there and proggy elements cropping up now and then, "Heads or Tales" certainly is worth a listen but it probably won't arouse too many hardcore progheads.

Boring, uninspired 80s pop/rock :-(

Prog Rock
I really like this album. It really manages to walk the razor's edge between prog and mainstream, and contains countless interesting twists and turns, never becoming too quirky for the novice prog fan. It reminds me a bit of the obscure "Point of No Return" by Zaragon, and Zaragon were probably inspired by Saga.

I've become a pretty big Saga fan in recent years since discovering them. They aren't the most progressive of bands, but usually they at least show some progressive tendencies. I was disappointed that there were none to be found on this album.

This is my first Saga album too. Cool album. Belongs in my top
three albums of 2006 just onto now.

Saga - Trust 2006
7.6
Non-Prog Rock
This is my first exposure to Saga, and I enjoyed it. Most songs
don't really grab me - they're kind of simplistic and (at least
to me) not very interesting, but still decent. But a couple of
songs are really nice, and more progressive than you would
expect from a band that had their biggest hits in the 80s with
a very much AOR/Stadium Rock oriented style. The good songs on
this album reminded me much of Enchant, with a dose of
(Non-Prog) Toto thrown in. Light Prog, but still!
