4 stars _Hold Your Fire_ is probably Rush's most exotic sounding album full of nuances and intricacies. Cartaily their most mature offering. Repeated listens find you hearing something new every time(not unlike listening to Gentle Giant's 2nd through 7th albums). This is probably their most ethereal album - Alex Lifeson at times soundling like Terje Rypdal in the solo department. Rush has never recorded a more _wordly_ sounding track than TAI SHAN - which to my ears sounds like their stab at _World Music_. I wish for Rush to explore this area once again. _Mission_ is another Rush classic(so much so...they dug it up and play it on their Sankes & Arrows Tour - a real crowd pleaser).
Gooner | 4/5 |
