4 stars "The Spirit of the Radio" was the first song that I heard from RUSH in 1981, and at that time I didn`t like it because it didn`t have enough keyboards and it sounded to me as "pure Heavy-Metal", not as "Traditional Progressive Rock WITH Keyboards". At that time, GENESIS and YES were "the True Prog Bands" for me because they used more keyboards and "less distorted Heavy Metal guitars". By 1983, I listened to RUSH`s live albums "Exit ...Stage Left" and "All the World`s a Stage", and I changed my opinion about RUSH. So, in 1984, I finally listened to this "Permanent Waves" album. As I still prefer the live versions of "The Spirit of the Radio", "Free Will" and "Jacob`s Ladder" from the "Exit..." album, my favourite songs in this album are the songs of the Side Two of the L.P.: "Entre Nous", "Different Strings" (great song!) and the best of all, "Natural Science", the most progressive of all. In those years, Neal Peart really impressed me very much, as I still was learning how to play the drums (I began to play the drums in a band in 1981, but I played the drums for the first time in 1977) and I was trying to learn something from the albums that I liked and from drummers that I considered very good drummers. Peart is still a very good drummer, with a very original style which is Progressive and Heavy at the same time.This is a very good album, and I could really recommend it as a starting point for new listeners of this band.
