4 stars This album moved further to the realms of 1980's aesthetics, but it still has some values which pleased me very much (like the wonderful rhythms). "Signals" opens the album with a synthesizer driven sound, and there was a sympathetic music video also done from this number. "The Analog Kid" is a more rocking song, with a quite heavy guitar solo from Alex. "The Weapon" is maybe the best composition of the album. It has some sequenced loops and effects, and it's a quite weird track, but very effective. "Digital Man" and "New World Man" are also good, energetic songs. "Losing It" is a quiet ballad, and "Countdown" is a grand description of a space rocket launch. The only track that didn't please me here is "Chemistry". Peart's lyrics are now oriented to more abstract themes than science fiction, which I see as a good thing.
