4 stars After the very successful record Moving Pictures, Signals represents the first album from the so-called Rush's synth-rock period. This period lasts from the beginning of the 80's until the beginning of the 90's. Geddy Lee got very interested in using synthesisers as a main instrument and this thing really brought freshness in the music of the band (see, I mean take a listen to Power Windows or Hold your Fire). The music had become more warm and atmospheric, reaching almost a kind of refinement and a higher pleasure of listening. Some people would like to say it's more commercial, but I'd like to say more progressive. Well-done!

Very nice and professional sound, very representative songs (Subdivisions, The Analog Kid and The Weapon are , IMO, essential). I won't comment upon each song, the main theme of the album referring to the condition of a teenager in front with an adult view of life.

Musically, there are songs more atmospheric and a little special in the way they sound (The Weapon and Losing It ), others are true synth-rock (Subdivisions, The Analog Kid and Chemistry). Digital Man is more hard-rock than the others. Excellent video on Subdivisions!

An important album and really, in the spirit of Rush! Recommended!
