4 stars A Farewell to Kings is a good CD. It is just that it does not move me as much as Hemispheres. Of course the music is played very well, but it is lacking that certain something to push it over the edge to get the fifth star. Also the singing pitch is too high for my taste. Cygnus X-1 is a fine song and is probably the best, along with Xanadu, on the CD. Closer to the Heart is one of those pop/ prog songs that Rush does so well. Even my friend Jordan who is not a prog rock fan by any means puts this song on his driving playlist. I would say that every progressive rock fan should probably own a copy of A Farewell to Kings. It is a classic. But the high point for Rush wold be Hemispheres and Moving Pictures.
