5 stars This is my first review on ProgArchives but I'll try to make it short. Without a doubt this is the greatest album from one of the world's most talented rock bands. I own almost every single Rush studio album (with the exception of their first two and Vapor Trails) and--after listening to each album at least once over the years--I've found that MP is Rush's musical watershed--a culmination of everything that came before, and, to some extent, after MP. There are the synthesizers (who can't forget that Moog riff from Tom Sawyer?) that are a staple of their '80s albums and there are the time signature shifts and long songs (there is only one LONG song on MP: The Camera Eye) of their early '70s albums like Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres. I am a Rush fan who enjoys every era of Rush's three-decade-long career, but I--as well as many, MANY other Rush fans--believe that Rush was at the height of their musical and lyrical powers on Moving Pictures.

P.S. Frankly, I am at a great loss for words of how great (again an understatement) Moving Pictures is. And yes, I'm sure much of what I've said here has been said millions of times in previous reviews, for that I apologize.
