Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is another tough hard album to review. This Rush's most successful and critically praised album, but I can't but think that after Permanant Waves the transition of losing their progressiveness was complete, and this album came as a result. Sure there are progressive songs (THE CAMERA EYE), but for the most part songs like TOM SAWYER and RED BARCHETTA are just rock songs with not a ton of things that make it progressive. That's why it's tough to rate this. Everything's great, but is so much different then CARESS OF STEEL or 2112. I love both styles of Rush, but this era is much less progressive and more commercial. For a rock album 5/5 but for a prog album, 4/5.
