4 stars Signals represent the natural progression of Rush from prog to prog-rock to synth-rock. It confirmed thier complete abandonment of pure prog sensibilities and yet it still works in many ways.

You get the standard foundations of Rush: thought-provoking lyrics and outstanding musicianship. You also get skmpler arrangements and a poppier sound. Still, virtually every song is solid from beginning to end (only Countdown leaves me wanting). Synths play a substantial role in virtually every song, but mostly in the beautiful, original Losing It.

People can complain about Rush selling out or abandoning their fans, but in my opinion they simply progressed and continued to make music that made sense for them. It's really a 3.5 star effort but I give it 4 here.
