Prog Reviewer
4 stars I'm not totaly agree with others reviewers that Hold your fire is a bad album, maybe less inspiring than the early works, but times changed and Rush realy knew how to evolve in prog and in music in general . The good music is present all over the album, and i can't understand what is so bad on this album in comparation with Power windows or Presto, witch i find them less enjoyble. No doubt, it sounds like "Power Windows", but Geddy Lee took it easy on the bass, focusing more on the keyboards. With all that i find Hold your fire a 4 star album, and to me is the second best in the '80 after Moving pictures, and among the best Rush albums. Forte tracks all but with plus on Open secrets and lock and key. 4 stars for Hold your fire. This one is on top 5 albums of Rush.
