Silent Knight was therefore the first album by the line-up that has been most consistent through the years and is the current one as well. Through the addition of Gilmour, the band also acquired another great vocalist. Apart from singing backing vocals, the keyboard player has done some nice lead vocals on various tracks.
This success could, however, not prevent the temporary split that occurred after the album Behaviour. Jim Gilmour and Steve Negus temporarily left the band to pursue other musical interests.
On the next two albums, Curt Cress filled in the empty spot behind the drums whereas the keyboard parts were handled by the Crichton brothers. Much to the enthusiasm of many Saga fans, Gilmour and Negus returned to the nest in Generation 13 Theme 1 Lyrics The 13th Generation Lyrics Snake Oil Lyrics Where Are You Now?

Changes Are Changes Are 2 But a topic that I have never seen, and which is much more germaine to the topic at hand, is which albums have you listened to and dismissed as totally forgettable, but later have discovered have sterling qualities that should not be so easily dismissed.
And my vote in that category goes to Saga's Generation So why am I recommending this to you? This album has the type of concept, story and style that made Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime such an awesome album.
The music is truly progressive. Saga is all over the map as far as the style of music on this album goees. Everthing from metal riffs to the sounds of a small orchestra has been thrown in. In fact, if judged just on this album, one might categorize them as symphonic instead. The album has an epic sweep to it, and it does not fail to entertain, despite the fact that it starts slowly in my opinion. This one gets four stars. I found it original and entertaining and memorable after the first two listens, but it doesn't go far enough to be a masterpiece.
But for those who have more or less dismissed Saga as I have it's definitely worth some dedicated listening. It didn't take me long to start enjoy the music on this album and I pleasantly surprised how different it sounded in comparisons to the other Saga releases. First of all it had no traces of the band's '80s material and that's a huge plus in my book.
The album's concept might not be all that original but one still has to appreciate the fact that it's a book to album adaptation. The music benefits by the great '90s production where the drums are threated just right and the effects really enhance the story. The progression of the music and story is smooth and if it wasn't for the somewhat flawed track The Victim I wouldn't even hesitate of giving this release the highest rating. As it stands today the album may not be essential for fans of progressive rock but I would still recommend to give Generation 13 a spin or two!
And the music is so tightly attached to the lyrics it serves as a merely background to the words most of the time. But none of the tracks has a life on its own when you listen to the album for the music alone.
None stands out. Still, some of the instrumental parts are good. And the story is well developed. Ok, they proved they can be totally progressive when they wanted to. Not that the word progressive means it is excellent automatically. In my opinion is Saga not an Average band, they are so talented!
Intro - Frostbite - Shards, spooky! And people wonder 1. Allegro - Frans Brüggen - Vol. 2 (Recorder Works By 10 Italian Composers) infanticide is so popular in cultures that have any sense. The band plays beautifully, the very missed Sadler's voice was in a great form and the production is also good enough. Spin It Again!
