4 stars I bring love to give you light, in the darkness of the night.

Hemispheres is a bit of a crossroad for Rush. The second book of Cygnus had been written. It was great, but was it as great as the first one? Maybe not. It's a bit over the top to be honest, but it's still a great piece of music, and if we didn't have that great first Cygnus book to compare it to, we would probably see it in a different light. The album still offers very much. I love "Trees" and "La villa strangiato" but somehow feel the last one, "Circumstances" to be a bit fill, and it's here where Hemispheres loses it's fifth star. Farewell to Kings didn't have a single bad track on it, which Hemispheres seems to have, and even the epic can't rescue it because it's not as good as its prequel.

By no means a bad or only a mediocre album. A great rocker by Rush, just not a masterpiece as the other ones by them. 4 Stars.
