5 stars Yeah, yeah...I know I have to know that not every album is a masterpiece and I accept it this album maybe deserves 4 stars. But I just love it and I think is a great album, maybe one of the 5 Rush most important records of the history. Neil Peart decided to go to the commercial lyrics (he probably had enough with the epic and superb lyrics that made Rush a cult band all over the world) but here you have an example, they don't even sacrifice their escence to make change or to survive the punk and new wave era that was dominating by those years. The first side it's pretty damn good Jacob's Ladder along with Natural Science are easily the highlights of the record, just listen to the guitar riff of the 3rd track...Pure Heavy Metal Sound. The Spirit of The Radio maybe one of their most known songs, even if you open their official website, the first that you hear is this song and its amazing riff. By those years Rush was changing, and I would agree that their 80's era is a little bit weak, but they were always great and I'm glad of being a fan of them. Give it a listen!
