  • Savatage is a band that writes music with feeling and lyrics that mean something. They use tempo changes, hard guitar lines, brilliant piano, and great vocals that meld together in a very listenable way. When I first heard this in 1991 I was amazed. While I love heavy metal, this was something more, it was better, and more fulfilling.
    Somewhere along the line Savatage got the reputation that they were strictly a “metal band”. Nothing is further from the truth. I think that is where the few negative reviews come from. People expect a thrashy sort of metal, and that isn’t the case. Savatage is thinking rock. Those who want something to thrash to, or a savage beat to bounce to, won’t find it in the band, although they do play some very great metal songs.
    Finally, Streets is a wonderful listen. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Each song is superb, and I, like others here, have been moved to tears by the sheer beauty of this CD. Do yourself a favor and pay the 10 bucks for this CD. Listen to it with the mentality that you are trying to find meaning in it. Listen 2-3 times over a period of a few days. Read the story, read the lyrics, visualize the scene. You will be awestruck.
