4 stars Rush follows up "Grace..." with just as much synth, but with a needed boost of adrenaline as well. "Power Windows" is a slight return to form, with the group sounding like they've figured out how to merge their big rock sound with the improving technology to create a more solid, interesting album than its predecessor.

Geddy splits up his duties a bit more evenly between keyboards and bass, turning out some monstrous licks (particularly on "Big Money") as well as dynamic synthesizer work. Peart, while still using lots of digital drumming is much more precise and interesting here than on their last album; his lyrics begin to show his growing love for homonyms as well. Alex is, well, Alex-- his guitar work wants for nothing. Stand out tracks include the aforementioned "Big Money", "Grand Designs", the very smart and political "Territories" and the symphonic "Mystic Rhythms".

A big '80's sound that holds up well today (although you'd never know they were written then if you get a chance to hear them performed now) and features a lot of songs to sing along to and think about.
