For those Saga fans disappointed with House of Cards and Marathon, Network is pretty much a return to form for the band. The first three tracks are classic Saga rockers, whilst the pace is slowed down somewhat for the next two tracks. What follows seems at first like a bit of a plodder, but then bursts into life with a fantastic guitar break followed by a rousing piano break. The last four tracks are the usual mix of rockers and ballads, and are all good solid stuff.
The band sound like they're enjoying themselves, and Ian Chrichton on guitar and Jim Gilmour on keyboards play some of their best stuff since Generation 13. New skinsman Christian fills Steve Negus' drumstool quite comfortably, though it would have been nice to hear something a little more adventurous.
Unlike the last two albums, the need to complete the 'Chapters' doesn't drag the album down, freeing Saga to start a new chapter in their illustrious history.

After the great, but ultimately:- below par album for Saga, in 2003's Marathon, they swiftly return the following year in 2004 to unleash Network; and out of the two CD's, Network is the better album and by far the more consistent. It starts with the very classic Saga anthem "On the air", the song is catchy and energetic, and is possibly the best opening track on a Saga album in recent memory.

Other key tracks include the hustle and bustle of "Keep it reel", the rock pomp of "I'm Back", the mystic "Outside looking in and Live at five", the sophisticated:- "Back to where we started", and the closer "Don't make a sound". Overall, the music retains the energised flare of Ian Crichtons guitar; complimemted by newcomer- pounder/ Christian Simpson and the delicate touches of Jim Gilmours keyboarding.

In truth, the band is clearly on form, and the music curtails a sense of confidence and of productive flair. Musically, the songs sound fresh and inspired with a good correspondence to previous Saga discographies. Network is not a classic, but it is most certainly among the top five albums, out of the 12 or so that Saga have produced since the 80's. Overall, an excellent album and one you simply can't go wrong with.

This one's better than their previous release Marathon but is still lacking in great songs, the exception being album closer 'Don't make a sound' which probably makes this CD worth buying on its own. There's a few other ok tracks but most of it just passed me by. The new drummer is competent but plodding and the production all round leaves a lot to be desired. Far from their best.

I really enjoyed this album it is not the classic old stuff but I thought better than the last project. Ian crichton is on top form as is jim gilmore. A good listen well worthy of a purchase....

Im my view only 2 albums after Beginner's Guide have been worthwhile: Security of Illusion and House of Cards, but I keep on buying their releases. Network is a slight improvement on Marathon in that there are 3 decent tracks, but the rest is predictable filler. The production is flawed, vocals are inaudible sometimes and the drums just don't sound right. It all sees too cluttered. Sorry lads.
