2 stars This one I found slighttly better then the previous four , but I was too busy discovering other things to really care . But I did keep track of their records and kept on listening to their album at least once , which was not the case with with other bands in dire times (Kansas?).

I cannot help the feeling everytime I see this album in stores to think that all Rush albums past Signals are just albums made as business-as-usual and are pretty much run-of-the-mill stuff , and this album is no exception to this first hour fan.

Clearly the 80's were troubled times for prog fans even if some of the pioneers were doing better than ever financially. But Yes, Genesis and Rush , if commercially successful and still dishing out poppier (and more commercial) tunes than at their early stages, they could never accused of playing it safe.
