The Runaway
5 stars Snakes & Arrows is Rush's 1st album in 2 years and boy did they not lose a single drop of their awesomeness. This album features tight playing, and while less proggy than their previous albums, S&A still sounds like a helluva good Rush album.

Far Cry, the opening track, is a hell of a good start for an album, introducing to the album's overall sound, which is great, but a tad too tight. Lerxst has a great wah line around the song's verses, which shows us that Rush hasn't grown old by a wrinkle. With Peart's amazing drumming and Geddy's amazing vocal range (which hasn't changed, by the way) and bass playing, S&A gets 5 stars for showing us that prog did not die down with the rise of prog metal bands such as Dream Theater, Tool, and Porcupine Tree.

This is a must-have for any Rush fan, and anyone who thinks prog died around the 80's, like me. Snakes & Arrows = winning masterpiece of prog.
