4 stars The most interesting thing in this album for me is the music. I`m not very interested in Neil Peart`s lyrics, but maybe I was more interested in the past. Peart`s lyrics about technology and science fiction maybe are more important for RUSH`s greatest fans. But, of all the albums that I have listened from RUSH, this is my favourite. The album starts fine with "Subdivisions", with very good drums, as always, by Neil Peart, plus a very good lead guitar by Alex Lifeson. In general, the most interesting songs in this album are in the Side 1 of the old L.P. (tracks 1 to 4). "Analog Kid" was played in some FM Radio stations in my country in 1982-83. "Digital Man" is a very good song with every member of the band showing their talents. I don`t give this album a five stars rating because I don`t like very much the songs "The Weapon" and "New World Man". Both songs are not very interesting for me, and I think that "New World Man" was released as a single, or could have been released as a single, because it has a "commercial melody". My favourite song from this album is "Losing It", with great atmospheres created by the guitars and the synthesizers, plus very good violins by Ben Mink which interact with Lifeson`s guitars. "Count Down" is another very good song, and it closes the album in a high point. I bought this album in the L.P. format in 1983, and I was surprised of the good quality of the recording. My L.P. copy (made in my country) says "Digital" in the cover, and the sound of this L.P. shows it very good.
