5 stars Who gave Grace Under Pressure a bad review?

Huh? Who?

Man, some people should get a good wackin' for that. SOME songs are weak, like Red Lenses or Kid Gloves, but do you throw away an amazing side A for that? On top, the album ends up with a very exceptionnaly good Between The Wheels. This song has pressure, just like the tension during the 80's cold war. Distant Early Warning is a MAJOR tune. The whole album as a feel of a fear of the atomic bomb. It's another 'dark' album, like Signals or Moving Pictures. It' very sad that the lyrics of Afterimage now apply to Neil Peart's life. It's almost a sad song, and once again, Rush shows that their music carries feelings. Don't be afraid of the 'techno' sound of Red Sector A, it's THE song who aged the better.

Neil Peart stated one day that he nver understood why poeple snobbed Grace Under Pressure at the time. He thought it was such a record for 'the times' in 1984. And frankly, I agree 100%. Grace Under Pressure is actually a cry for help, the fear of the future is tastable in every song.

Listen to it, don't throw away gems before you hear what the're made of. You could throw away gold with this one.
