5 stars it's the RUSH album... no ordinary songs! Guitar, bass and drums are incredible! As hard rock as progressive! The guitar sound is unique and it takes most of the place without giving you the feeling that other instruments are not present enough!! The bass is at its best: complex and perfectly played! The drums are quite outstanding: lot of cymbals and variety. The keyboards are not too present to give again all the prog hard rock dimension of the album. Certainly the best of all time prog hard rock album. Recorded in England!! Listen it very loud because this album is good loud! The guitar takes all its power and presence when played very loud. Yes, we can say that "Circumstances" has a quintescent bit! "La Villa Strangiato" is probably the best hard rock prog jazz song ever made!! Once you started "Cygnus X-5", you cannot stop till the end!! "The Trees" is very addictive and accessible while being never simple!!
