Product Description

Product Description

With SAGA’s new album “Sagacity”, the Canadian progressive rockers manage to keep their signature sound alive with a touch of modernity. Or as Michael Sadler puts it: “For me this album marks a return to many of the signature elements that put Saga on the map at the onset of the band’s career, while maintaining a firm grip on the here and now. The balance between past, present and future is the key and I think that’s what we’ve managed to achieve. Quite simply, this is SAGA...2014!“ He certainly got it right. “Sagacity” does neither lack the striking guitar riffs which go hand in hand with the extensive keyboard arrangement nor Michael Sadler’s characteristic voice. SAGA welcomes you with a familiarity and an album full of progressive rock anthems. Sagacity – the English expression which in other words means wisdom and cleverness – pun intended – has always been a huge part of the band philosophy. SAGAhas gotten wiser over the years which shows in their thoughtful, multileveled lyrics. They have gotten smarter with their music arrangements, always leaving the listener amazed with their creativity and inventiveness. Their richness of ideas reflects on the typical but always newly sounding keyboard sounds as well as in its striking melodies. On top of it, it’s Michael Sadler’s distinctive voice which molds the sound of SAGA, and he does so in an extremely good way. The special edition includes a bonus CD - “Saga Hits” - including nine live recordings from an energetic performance at the SWR1 Rockarena festival in 2013. Ranging from one classic like “The Cross” to another one like “On The Loose”, the bonus CD surely proves why SAGAare still going strong. There is just one thing left to say: welcome to SAGA 2014!

Just a quck review after a couple of day one listens to help any would be purchasers during week of release , I think the 2cd set is pretty limited so " Dont be late" if you are considering this album with the bonus live cd.
- Saga City - The Album , Superb, if you prefer the slighly more cerebral style of Saga then this is for you, lots of tempo changes , songwriting seems more focussed than last time out and a superb production - 5/5
- Greatest Hits live cd - fairly well recorded especially as it is just a bonus cd rather than a stand alone release, although you could argue quite how much more saga live material anyone needs following recent releases. 4/5
- Packaging , The booklet is superb and as good as you get for this type of release - All album lyrics and some up to date band/ individual photos . My complaint however is with the gatefold digipack. The card is very poor quality and the opening for the booklet and the album is such a loose fit the contents just fall out onto the floor ever time i pick up the item and fail to keep it level. A minor gripe considering my overall pleasure with this album but worth a mention - In summary 5 stars for the music and the booklet less one star for the slightly underwhelming digipack

After 21 studio albums, which seemingly extend every 2 or 3 years; Saga are in no mood of stopping anytime soon. This commitment to rock music gleefully shown on "Sagacity", which represents the magic number of 21. It is certainly the best overall album since 10,000 days, and it's relaxed vibe is a rather different permissant not often seen on they're studio CD's. While Ian Crichton's dirty guitar is still present I dare say it takes a slightly more of a side seat for other sounds and nuances to infiltrate the music:- which is nice.

Songwriting is also quite laid back but it is still very focused:- thankfully. There is an evident progression and change to their approach that I think could be a little divisive; the usual energised Saga flare is slightly reigned-in abit for a more "slow boat experience". An overall lower reliance on tight malchanoly, but a scale tipper for atmosphere and thought provoking ness is ultimately prevailant. There is still a few rockers present, but noticibly fewer than normal:- the spirit and feel of the disc a convincingly inspiring and settling one.

Typically, I prefer the differentness of "Go with the flow", and the rock fests of "Wake up & Don't forget to breathe". But I really enjoyed my listen to this one, it did give me a kind of a modern "Full Circle" feel, and I feel it's release will go down as a complimentary one to the bands great career. I would definitely recommend you buy the standard jewel case over the flimsy new digipack, as the packaging is a cardboard cut out gatefold, which stinks of cost saving and lack of thought with regards to presentation and practicality.

Thank you.

Back in the late 70's I loved, nay worshipped this band, their first three albums were magnificent, they could do no wrong..........35 years later and this is a pale imitation of their previous progressive magnificence. Gone is the eternal battle between the synth and guitar that worked so well and now we have an uninspiring collection of guitar riffed based (and not that good) songs with the keyboards well back in the mix. I really tried to like this but am really struggling. What makes it worse/better is the inclusion of the live tracks of their early stuff - it makes this album worth purchasing and each and every live track stands out and brings back memories of the glory days - this is worth the entrance price alone!
So buy this for the live album then go and buy their first three, you'll not be disappointed.

It's difficult to know where to start with this album, but on so many levels this one fails to hit the mark. I'll lay my cards on the table and say I've loved this band since the early days in the late 70's and you only have to pick up one of their earlier albums to listen to some of the really terrific progressive/AOR music that they have produced over the years.
I remember their first headline gig in the UK at the Lyceum (following those 3 nights at Hammersmith supporting Styx) where barely 100 people turned up expecting to hear a RUSH Mark2. Clearly they are not, and never have been that sort of band, but they knocked me off my feet.
Sophisticated, thoughtful progressive pomp rock with loads of keyboards and searing guitar are what SAGA are all about.
So what's missing this time around? Well I could quibble about the mix. Jim Gilmour's keyboards take a backseat here. Too many tracks end abruptly without being developed fully. There's certainly no 'Don't be Late' here. Michael Sadler's vocals sore as ever and there are many of the usual Saga trademarks, but many of the ideas seem muddled and just don't work for me. Ultimately it's the quality of the writing and the songs are just not up to the usual standard. I was waiting to be knocked off my feet with some great catchy hooks, but they just don't arrive.
The additional live CD from last year's rock festival in Sweden is interesting (if you go for the 2-CD version), but SAGA have released better live material.
It pains me to be so negative but every band is entitled to a mediocre release once in a while. It doesn't make them a poor band.
If you want to dip your feet into Saga for the first time, go for one of the compilations. If you are familiar with their material, tread carefully with this one!
