5 stars If you read my review about "A Farewell to Kings" (review #1126496 posted Sunday, February 02, 2014 ) where I write "If you ask for prog rock fans - "What is the best RUSH album ? " The majority of them will answer to you : "Moving Pictures !!!". I respect this opinion, but, I disagree.... my top RUSH album is "A Farewell To Kings"- you can think which I treated "Moving Pictures" with disdain... on the contrary... I think in this album like a final chapter of a perfect cycle of four sequent studio albums.The side 1 of vinyl edition is simply perfect starting by "Tom Sawyer" a progressive/hard/heavy simple melody crowned by an "broken" riff in a way which only this guys can make! The "Red Barcheta"s introduction with guitar harmonics and bass guitar lines are simply "priceless"... YYZ is a instrumental theme where the band can expose again their incredible virtuosity ... broken beats, sinuous bass/guitar melody and guitar solo majestically finished in duo with keyboards. "Limelight" is a wonderful progressive hard/ballad rock . In the side 2 Rush starts their path in direction of a more simple form of progressive ( without leave aside their refined "trade mark"... ) ,"The Camera Eye" bnrings a almost space-prog atmosphere with great vocals moments . "The Witch Hunt" is a hard/symphonic prog with very heavy guitar chord progression. "Vital signs" are the most clear example of a more simple but refined melody and shows the course which Rush' music will follow. My rate is 5 stars !!!
