5 stars The third and last Rush prog rock masterpiece. It includes the best epic ever witten by Rush, "Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres", since the first time I heard this masterpiece I was astonished by the way the play, as if they were one. "La Villa Strangiato" can also be considered as Rush´s greatest track, because all of it´s complexity, Lifeson´s guitar solo during a 7/8 time, the bass lines by Geddy, and of course the "Professor" Neil Peart and his precisely played drums. "The Trees" is also amazing, overall the interlude and the part where Alex makes all those great fills. "Circumstances" is an awesome track, but if you hear it after "Hemispheres" and before "La Villa Strangiato", surely you´ll say it´s pretty weak, though it´s not.
