CD Review: Saga-20/20 (2012)

                                       Available : July 24, 2012




Without speaking any bit of untruth here I jumped out of my seat that I am currently in when I got the press release that "SAGA" had reunited with Micheal Sadler.
Without missing a beat they sound like the band that we all got hooked on their music. With songs like "Anywhere You Wanna Go" , "Ellery" & "Spin It Again" makes it feel like they never parted ways(or decades). "Lost For Words" is a beautiful song.
I feel it honor to be able to hear this album and I say welcome back Mr Sadler & thanks to the band to another great album of 2012!
This is such a strong album for so many different reasons the band plays so well together and the musicianship is second to none.
Here is a sample video for their new album.


Here are some of their videos from previous years:
"Wind Him Up"



"On The Loose"


Here they are performing
"Don't Be Late" last year
in Toronto showing they still can
perform strong!
