4 stars This fourth album contains memorable songs. It is probably the first album to become really popular. This is sophisticated hard rock, even mellow and progressive sometimes. It is the first time keyboards are introduced, but we are far from Power windows; Geddy Lee was rather minimalist here, but efficient enough.

The epic eponymic song, which lasts about 20 minutes, is a wonderful hard rock progressive song full of powerful electric guitar, complex bass and drum parts. The other side contains varied songs: the mellow acoustic "Twilight Zone", having a good guitar solo. The more hard rock "Passage to Bangkok", "Something For Nothing" and "Lessons". The peaceful acoustic "Tears" on which floating keyboards and quiet lead vocals allows the listener to really relax.
