5 stars This is Rush at their most progressive work. The album begins with the amazing Cygnus X-1 Book 2, this is almost as good as 2112 but not quite, this song is more straight foreword than 2112, probably the second best Rush epic ever, this is the second half to Cygnus x-1 from A farewell to kings. One thing that i really love about this song is Alex Lifeson's guitar playing, his playing always seems to amaze me, and not to forget the other two master musicians. Next is Circumstances, this one is great hard rocker, and i happen to like Geddy's vocals alot on this one, great riffs by lifeson also. The Tree's shows Pearts great lyrical skills and some amazing acoustic work from Lifeson. La Villa Strangiato is an instrumental that just blows me away, every time i listen to this song i wonder how do they do that. Each musician shines so clear on this track, Neil's amazing jazz drumming, Alex's amazing solo's, and Geddy's top notch bass playing. Rush's Hemispheres album is probably most popular among Art Rock fans, i really do not have favorite Rush album, to me all of them are great. But this one right here they were really on top of their skills, this an album made by master musicians, and there is nothing else out there like it. 5 stars for sure
