5 stars With "Hemispheres", this is the best record from RUSH. The bass reaches its peak here, no doubt: its exaggerated Rickenbaker sound, its complexity and its technical performance are speechless. The electric guitar is slightly different from "Permanent Waves": the guitar sound here is much more mature, a bit cleaner, more refined, modern and not always sounding conventional hard rock. Neil Peart really masters his drums here: the miscellaneous complex, fast and rhythm changing parts reach a never attained level here, even higher than on "Hemispheres"! The keyboards are, like on the preceding albums, not very elaborated, but there are some very good parts, like on "Witch Hunt" and "YYZ". Side one is ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING: "Tom Sawyer", with its killer bass, guitars and drums; "Red Barchetta", a very catchy song, will amaze you by the perfect synchronization of the instruments. YYZ is a pure technical performance track, VERY addictive. Finally, "Limelight", the most accessible one, will just move you with its outstanding finale. Side 2 has one bad point: the last 2 tracks "Witch Hunt" and "Vital Signs". Well, it is not that those tracks are bad, but the other tracks are so good that these ones sound almost irrelevant, especially the last one. "Witch Hunt" is quite better than "Vital Signs". "Camera Eye" is a very pleasant progressive rhythmic track, among the best tracks by RUSH.

EXTREMELY RECOMMENDED!
