Prog Reviewer
4 stars Spirit of the Radio- One of RUSH's greatest commercial songs, and just one of their greatest songs in general. I honestly believe the lyrics in this song are some of the most poetic and original Neal has ever written. It may be geared more toward radio play, but with all the changes in the song and the odd time signatures, its still prog baby. Everyone can enjoy this song, and its hard not to smile when you hear it.

Freewill- Another great RUSH song. Also geared toward radio airplay, but who cares, its still a great song. It comes right out of the gate rolling with the momentum built up by the first song. The lyrics here, again, are fantastic and really fun to recite and sing along with. Not too terribly complicated, but very catchy and very clean. It gets fun and crazy towards the middle, and then goes back to the rhythem of the beginning of the song. Great.

Jacob's Ladder- Still going strong, and building up tension. Good stuff.

Entre Nous- Sorta catchy, but only the first few times. You'll find yourself skipping this song after a few spins.

Different Strings- Kinda like Entre Nous, except more boring. You'll do the same thing to this one.

Natural Science- Best song in the album, and one of the best RUSH songs ever done. My personal favorite Rush song. Proggy and never really slows down.

An accessable, albeit prog light, Rush album, with my personal favorite Rush song of all time, Natural Science. A solid 4 Star effort.
