4 stars Rush's finest hour (or a bit under). My early enjoyment of Rush was spoiled by some slightly silly lyrics and screechy vocals, but here the writing is more mature and Lee sings far more tunefully. The musicianship is astonishing, especially on the instrumental YYZ; few bands could attempt this with its complex rhythms and dynamic interplay. Every track is thoroughly enjoyable but my favourite is the complex The Camera Eye, comparing life in New York and London. Witch Hunt, with its echoes of Salem, is sinister and dark, whilst Vital Signs is lighter and almost poppy. Not quite a masterpiece overall but a very strong album which frequently features on my playlist and is highly recommended.
