It has been a trend in recent years for bands to perform their classic albums live in their respective entirety. The present live album documents Saga's first attempt at doing this (they apparently did it once more recently with Heads Or Tales). Not surprisingly they chose Worlds Apart the first time around, which is after all their most popular album. Personally though, I would have preferred them to perform the conceptual masterpiece Generation 13 or the self-titled debut album from 1978.

Thankfully, we get not just Worlds Apart in its entirety, but also a whole bunch of other classics, most of which are from the band's first five albums. Ice Nice is a great surprise for Prog fans. Everything is performed with competence and passion which makes for a wholly enjoyable live album. However, there are better live albums in Saga's discography. The classic In Transit as well as Detours are more interesting.

Still, this is a good and recommended live set full of classic songs.
