4 stars In coincidence with the first time of Rush in Italy (next September 2004)- I like to remind you of the early progressive works by this important Canadian Band: albums like this "Hemisphere" create a sort of conciliation among their fans, despite of remarking a few uneven breaks-through inside (in comparison for example to their stunning work entitled "Farewell to Kings", which is exceptional from the beginning to the end), because the new wave of Rush in the nineties won't never be equal from the artistic point of view!! Nevertheless their evolution (or if you prefer their attempt to work in progress in the recent times) demonstrates the cleverness of these guys to "re-invent" themselves!! But coming back to this famous "Hemisphere", you can find original music features within,even though the second part of Cignus X1 (Book 2) is not equal to its predecessor.The best track of the album is the instrumental "La Villa Strangiato", which shows the technical side of the band, involved into such a great "jazz" excursion,with hints of symphonic music, in the "power-trio format" naturally, that is surprising every time!! Instead "The trees" is another jewel, an unforgettable song which is a must-have also during their performances live on stage!! The harmonic solutions are always incredible and, by forgetting the short 3 minutes song of "Circumstances" only, a return to their "hard rock root", the remaining tracks are well worth checking out!!
