5 stars A farewell to kings is a classic album by Rush and it is a classic rock album. A farewell to kings has longer compositions on it and the radio rock classic Closer to the heart, which is a lighter and shorter song on the album which serves as a break from the albums longer songs. Geddy Lee and company are great musicians, which was shown on 2112, but here the band members evolve to a whole new level with their instruments. The highlight of the album is the last track, Cygnus X-1, which is a classic progressive rock composition. A farewell to kings not only sticks up as a classic album in progressive rock, but it also sticks up as a classic album in all of rock music. An essential listen for anyone who is a fan of progressive rock or rock music in general.
