King Crimson776
5 stars This is the best Rush album in my opinion. It has more direction than their earlier stuff but still has the catchy progness missing from some later Rush albums. Moving Pictures comes in close second because this one is more solid overall. Musically the band is at it's tightest here as evidenced in tracks like The Spirit of Radio, Freewill, and Jacob's Ladder, all of which rank among Rush's best work. Freewill would have to be my favorite song on the album, the riff is catchy, the solo is epic, and the lyrics are their best ever. Entre Nous is another somewhat catchy track, Different Strings is a good ballad and Natural Science is a longer track that is interesting enough to keep attention throughout. Overall a great album and one of the best of the late 70's certainly, highly recomended.
