4 stars I have been a Rush fan since 1987. I have almost a religious feeling for this band. I admire them and I suffered with them during their dark ages.

The rumors about a new album started. I was looking forward to this album. The very encouraging studio reports was fanning the flames in my heart. But my high hopes was surpassed by this album.

It is a miracle that Rush still exist. Why they still exist, is very much evident in this album. Rush = three guys who loves creating new music, their own way. They brought in a new producer for this album and that has resulted in one of the best sounds I have ever heard. The music too kick ass. Rush, who has existed for over 35 years, sounds fresh and very vital on this album. The music is at times heavy, but also reflective and melodic. The keyboards has almost gone and the guitars is very dominant. The bass and the drums are flawless and the vocals better than ever. The songs are superb, with a couple of exceptions. The album was voted best album of the year by the Classic Rock magazine and I can only agree. I am full of admiration for this band and dead proud of this album from my all-time favorite band.

Best songs are........well, never mind. All of them are superb and very different from each other. There is one exception though......... The Larger Bowl is almost like a child's lullaby. It is too simple and I feel it devalues this album. Except from that song, this is a very good album and one of their best albums.

4 stars.
