Images At Twilight is the second studio album by the Canadian progressive rock band Saga and was originally released in May 1979.

Live performances[edit]

"You're Not Alone" remains a fixed part of Saga's live performances, partially due to the fact that Michael Sadler usually turns the chorus into an "audience participation" passage, when e.g. the women and men, or people on the left and on the right, take turns in singing "you're not, you're not, you're not alone". The song features on all the band's regular live releases. A remake titled "You're Not Alone '97" (which only keeps the chorus and instrumental parts) was included on the album "Pleasure & the Pain". "Mouse in a Maze" has returned to the setlist in 2012, appearing on "Spin it Again! Live in Munich" and the Special Edition of "Sagacity". Both performances start right away with the guitar riff and omit the a cappella intro. It is also on the Limited Edition of "All Areas - Live in Bonn", which also includes "Images". "It's Time! (Chapter 3)" and "Images (Chapter 1)" are featured on "The Chapters Live". "See them Smile" can be found on "All Areas - Live in Bonn" and "Worlds Apart Revisited". "Take It or Leave it" is also on "All Areas - Live in Bonn". "Hot to Cold" is available on "Live in Hamburg". Only "Slow Motion" was never played live.

The Chapters[edit]

Two of the songs, "Images (Chapter One)," and "It's Time (Chapter Three)," were part of a series of eight (but later sixteen) songs that Saga included within their first four albums called "The Chapters," which told the story of a young Albert Einstein. To date, there's been no official compilation of the chapters in their studio incarnation.
