5 stars One of the 5 masterpieces made by Rush and this one is my favorite.It starts of with A farewell to kings a great opening song that shows Lifesons great acoustic work.Then Comes Xanadu a great Rush Epic. This song contains everything you would ever want in Rush song.Closer to the heart is next, this is one you hear on the radio a lot, one of the weaker songs on the album but still good. Cinderella Man is good song it flows good with the album. Madrigal is what many call a filler but i don't see it as filler, a good song that leads to Cygnus X-1.This is my fave on the album. It starts of with Geddy's funky bass playing and as the song progresses it turns into almost a metal jam out song. Geddy, Neil, and Alex are some of the greatest musicians in the prog world and in the music world and the display it at their best on this album. Great mystical lyrics by peart also.
