Hey!

I can't wait for SAGA's new studio album "MARATHON", it should be released on February 17th, and the new DVD "SILHOUETTE" should be out in February too. With Remasters and new albums and DVD's and upcoming tours. It's a great time to be a SAGA fan!!!

I hope they come back to Canada for a summer tour. I seen them at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto back in August and it was an awesome show!!!

THE SAGA CONTINUES.... ! :)

Yes, I look forward to those too.

SAGA has had their biggest success in Germany and Sweden, and they play here almost every year. But Sweden is a big country and I live far away from those places where they use to play.

I haven't seen them since 1985 live...:sarc

However, I have all their records. They are not only the best Canadian rock band ever, they are THE rock band.

My personal favourite record is the somwhat Pink-Floyd-ish "Generation 13". A very strong album. But it's hard to pick your favourites when all they do is so great.

SAGA forever!!!!:)

Generation 13 is awesome!!

I love every album, they all have different elements. Even Pleasure & The Pain which usually ranks worst among fans, has some pretty cool moments on that disc!

Yes me too. When the World's apart album came out, it was heavily criticised, but I love that album.

Heads or Tales was also very criticised, but I like that one too. SAGA always develop their music one step further, and often when you listen to a new album for the first time it's kind of a shock. "I don't like it!" is the feeling after the first listen, it's so different, so strange.

But then you listen again. And again. And you just can't stop listening. I love it how you keep discovering new sounds and things in the sound image years after you heard the album for the first time...

I could go on for hours. Better stop now.:D
