3 stars The return to their heavier roots. The production is thicker than the one on 'Roll The Bones', which makes this record really rock out. Alex Lifeson rediscovers his guitar chords from the earlier years, thus playing a leading role. Peart's drumming is top notch as always, performing some great fills on the instrumental 'Leave that thing alone'. His rhythm section with Lee seems built out of flexible iron. And yet, the song writing isn't always convincing. 'The Speed of Love' and 'Everyday Glory' sound cheesy, leaving no lasting impression. On the other hand, 'Animate', 'Nobody's Hero' and 'Double Agent' are instant classics. For any other heavy rock band, this would be their masterpiece. Still it's a fine Rush album.
