5 stars In my opinion "Hemispheres" is the best Rush album. Maybe it is too short but it is their best album. I started to listen to this album when I discovered the amazing instrumental " La Villa Strangiato". This is absolutely my favourite Rush song. It's a perfect song. Neil plays amazing rhythms and themes which are changing and improving during the song. Here while Alex plays amazing solos also. a 5-star-song. The other songs are also really great. The first one Cygnus X-1 book II is the continuance of previous Rush album "A Farewell To King". It's one of Rush epics. It's very long but I never get fed up of it because it is not repetitive, it is changing themes constantly. Then "circumstances" and "the trees" are shorter song. They are more popular than VS and Cy. X but I prefer these. Anyway I also like both songs. They go in the same album's style and also are great pieces.

1.- Cygnus X-1 book II: 9'5/10; 2.- Circumstances: 8/10; 3.- The Trees 9/10; 4.- La Villa Strangiato: 10/10

Hemispheres: 5 stars

Sorry for my bad English again, I am Spanish
