The only, eponymous album of this Fantastic Swedish quartet was released by Sonet Records in 1974 and is often considered as one of the very best Swedish records of mid-70’s era. Saga were formed by Christer Stålbrandt (the leader of great, heavy progressive band November) and represented a further development of the style prevalent on 2nd and 3rd November albums. The new band had an expanded range of instruments (including cello, piano and soprano sax) and more accomplished compositions (with great results), although it was still guitar-based, raw and very intense heavy progressive music (sung in Swedish). This CD edition has been carefully remastered from original, analogue source and sounds better than ever!

================================================================================

Post-November guitar based hard rock. Great fuzzed out blues guitar played over jazz, hard rock, folk and progressive styled tunes. Similar in sound to many 70s Swedish groups, though this is quite a bit more expressive in places, taking it to a higher level.
Post-November guitar-based hard rock with strong psych and progressive leanings. I actually like this one even better than the November albums. It has a few lysergic acid driven experimental parts that are outstanding. The rest is hard rock with lot's of killer wah-wah guitar leads and those nice minor-keyed melodies that the Swedes did so well back then.
A very good, hard guitar driven prog album, that, unfortunately, is somewhat short in the melody department. Grades - 4 B+'s, 2 B's, and 3 B-'s, quite consistent.
