3 stars During Neil Peart's temporary departure from the legendary Art Rock band Rush (due to the death of both daughter and wife), the remaining two members of the power trio decided to work on solo projects.

Bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee decided to take a Hard Rock/Pop direction (with clear prog roots). While Peart normally writes the lyrics of Rush, Lee did a fantastic job on this album. Although they are not overly thought provoking, riddled with imagery, or emotionally engaging, like Rush's standards, they are still great lyrics. The music is relatively simple, but very good regardless. Sometimes soft and lyrical, and other times hard, bass-heavy and electrifying.

Overall, however, this album did not succeed in jolting my heart to clinging to this album. It's very good to hear now and then, and at times is extremely enjoyable, but is, unfortunately, not overly unique. It is a very, very good Hard Rock/Pop/Modern Rock album, but a "just ok" Prog album.
