5 stars For your surprise (or maybe not?) this is the only album from Rush that I like from beginning to end. A really great album that surprises after having many dissapointments from the band (it is really not my kind of prog style I think, also Geddy Lee's voice becomes irritating). The first track is sadly the last epic from Rush: Hemispheres. The tracks has excellent drum work and I think the lyrics are awesome, but there are some parts that I really would quit. Circumstances is a little rock piece, very commercial if you ask me, but also really good. The Trees is a strange song, I think it is the weakest song from the album, but many consider it one of their best. La Villa Strangiato is another story, really perfect instrumental, pretty memorable and complex, best song in the album. I want to say that this album should be the only essential work from Rush, I can find at least three negative qualities in the rest of the albums, but not in this one, a true masterpiece, accesible for everyone.
