4 stars On "Power windows", the dynamic, crystal clear & powerful sound of the instruments really take all its dimension: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson create impressive & powerful atmospheres with a superb sonority, never attained before: the sound quality is comparable to the Saga's "Heads or tales" album. The electric guitar is absolutely sharp, nervous, loud and highly pitched: actually this record has one of the best echoed guitar solos sounds ever made by Rush: it is not exaggerated to believe Alex Lifeson sounds at his best here! The amazing bass popping amplifies its presence and its speed. The difference with "Grace under pressure" is that here the omnipresent modern, atmospheric & crystal clean mood is highly superior and at its best! The echoed drums are VERY varied and really sound modern, barely electronic. Geddy Lee's voice is much more dynamic and on the higher notes than on some previous records.

Rating: 4.5 stars
