 Saga - Silhouette

Saga - Silhouette If you consider yourself the ultimate Saga fan, I have a DVD for you. Silhouette is a deluxe comprehensive multi-faceted career spanning DVD presentation that celebrates the band and their 25th anniversary of making music together.

The first segment puts together all their videos for the first time then part two offers concert footage with a few bootlegs, and finally a section is devoted to in-depth interviews, which I thought went on for too long actually. Only the die-hard fan will appreciate the longevity of the interview section. However, any fan of this type of music will enjoy the videos and concert footage.

What I realized after viewing the concert tracks was there was much more to this band than the album World’s Apart. This band has worked tirelessly for 25 years and put out numerous albums. The first eight albums, intended for release as a sequence of chapters, broke new ground in the area of concept and production for rock albums. Their sound was always unique as well. With the ability to satisfy the appetite of progressive-rock and rock-pop lovers alike, they have remained both definitive and far-reaching, touching their listeners all over the globe.

DVDs do not get much better than this one. Get ready to set aside a few hours of your time. I had to watch it in sections over a period of a few days to appreciate the significance of what they accomplished, rather than trying to take it all in with one viewing, but that is my personal preference. Any way you decide to digest this DVD, you will surely come to understand why Saga is the pride and joy of Canada and their contributions to rock music are a piece of history worth taking a closer look at.
