4 stars With signals Rush and Terry Brown threw all production values employed for Moving Pictures and Permanent waves out of the window and started afresh one could only presume for fear of repeating themselves. While its predecessor is immaculate sounding the sound on this album is muddy and the synths are a lot more prominent than before, this superficial gripe aside Rush were still peaking compostion/lyricwise and there isn't a duff song to be heard. Rush also have done away with all long more complex tunes and replaced with more concise but on occasions no less complex songs. Agreed there is more keyboard synth going (not a bad thing in my opinion but may put some off) but if you listen (i mean really listen) there is still plenty going off guitarwise as well. Recommended if you can appreciate composition and content over style.
