5 stars This is my Co-favorite Rush album tied with Signals (1982). They are my favorite progressive rock albums of the (relatively weak) 80's. This CD is not as heavy yet on the synth as Signals is and Lifeson's guitars here are arguably his most ferocious of any Rush album. The songs on this album are more radio friendly than previous albums but I think that Rush mixed their more intricate musicianship with popular hooks better here than on any other album. Some may not approve of the move toward a more radio friendly sound but to me it was the perfect mix of fantastic musicianship, great hooks, riffs and lyrics. Each song is different as well with Red Barchetta being my favorite Rush ROCK song (Cygnus X-1 Book II being my favorite Rush PROG rock song). For it's time, It was an amazing achievement and still blows me away though it's sound may be too dated for todays neo-progressive rock fans. still, it rates as a music masterpiece.
