5 stars *The* Rush Album

This album kicked my butt so hard. I am sure that is the reason that Hemispheres disappointed me so. From the word go, 'A Farewell to Kings' displays originality, energy and deep concepts. The band again shows their attachment to literature and science with the albums epics, Xanadu and Cygnus x-1. Even the radio hit 'Closer to the Heart' is a moving and enjoyable classic. Though this is the album that made me start to hate radio. I began to realize that I was missing all the best music in the world because it did not fit commercial time allowances or mainstream sensibilities. But I'm certainly not going to blame 'CttH' for that.

This album is at least tied, if not flat out Rush's best work. 4.5 stars...rounded up...take that Hemispheres!
