paragraph7
5 stars To form a new reality, closer to the heart.

This is it. This is what Rush is about, no bad moments, different songs with different themes and melodies. The track Xanadu is the real highlight here, but depending on the day, i really can listen more to the title track or Closer to the heart. The real beauty of this album is, that even if it has those "easy rock" songs plus Xanadu, it still leaves room to a real prog effort: Cygnus Book X-1. This track is much more demanding than Rush's usual stuff, but when you get the feel of it, it's a really rewarding tune.

The group effort in this one is also astonishing. Listen to the drumming and bass playing in Xanadu, it's amazing! This album is easily worth 5 stars, and for me it's an unreached milestone by Rush. Rush at their peak.
