3 stars I just bought this album, eight years (omg time flies!) since the deliciously organic in spots, but overall Mediocre, Test for Echo. I really enjoyed hearing all the great songs I remembered from collecting Rush albums during high school in the early 90's. This collection of greats made me want to run back to the store and rehash all the broken, melted, and mutilated Rush tapes I had as a younger lad. Xanadu remained me how brooding and dark Farewell to Kings is, and how can one describe the mood upon first hearing 2112? How about a Metaphysical, outlandish, and deliciously freaky progressive extravaganza? I just wanted my Rush collection back! I recently saw them in concert with a sudden upgrade of seating to the 12th row and MOTHER OF SAM HEIN ON MUSHROOMS!!!!!!! These guys were Jamming and dancing around like the Jackson Five in 72! ... The stage lighting and rear screen projections brought me to where I had always imagined Rush; playing in some organic alien landscape, soaring through space and time................
