4 stars The Grace under pressure album by Rush is very much dominated by sythesizers, but this is another strong album by the Canadian trio. An 80's album by Rush is usually talked down a lot by lots of fans but happen to be fan of them. This album has very little guitar from an amazing guitarist, lifeson uses his guitar more as a back up instrument, he still gives some solos like always. Grace Under Pressure is very dark album by Rush, the cover art on the album goes great with the music, nice job by Hugh Sym. The other only Rush album that is kind of dark is Caress of Steel and Roll the Bones. The opener Distant Early Warning is an amazing song, very well written lyrics by Peart. And Geddy got rid of his High pitch vocals on this one. Some other good ones are Afterimage, Red Sector A, Between the Wheels, and The Enemy Within. Rush really escaped their Proggy hard rock sound from the 70's, but it was the 80's and technology was changing and keyboards and Sythesizers were taking over music. For me Grace Under Pressure is very good album from Rush, one of the best from the 80's...this gets 4 stars
