2004's Worlds Apart was the second and final release from UK melodic rockers Pulse. Pulse, which features members of Bob Catley's supporting band, delivers a polished, classy brand of AOR that obviously draws inspiration from classic bands like Journey and Foreigner.
"World's Apart" was released on Polygram Records. This Japanese reissue of the hard rocker's album is from 1980. The band included Michael Bolotin on vocals, Bruce Kulick (later of KISS) on guitar, Sandy Gennaro on drums, and Jimmy Haslip on bass. The band was short-lived, released 2 albums in 1979 and 1980 and embarked on a small US nationwide tour. Considered highly collectable AOR classics.
Over the course of the last three decades, Saga remains one of the leading bands in melodic progressive rock music. Albums like Silent Knight, Heads Or Tales and Worlds Apart are milestones in the history of refined rock music and still haven't lost any of their magic. The current double CD / double DVD of Worlds Apart Revisited contains a full live concert recording (from Pratteln, Switzerland, December 8th, 2005) and features a cross-section track list culled from albums throughout their entire career.
Worlds Apart is the fourth studio album by the Canadian progressive rock band Saga and was originally released in 1981. The album has been released with several different covers. Frontman Michael Sadler stated in the band's video DVD Silhouette that Hine told him to stop "singing like a choir boy" and actually had him climb up to the roof of a barn located on the farm in England where the recording was done in order to get the proper passion out of Sadler for the song "On The Loose". Sadler's vocal style was noticeably different on Worlds Apart than on the first three Saga albums—a style that he kept in successive performances with the band.
