5 stars Really we need to say Farewell to some Presidents!!

Wow I totally agree with the tag of Essential here in Prog.Archives. This album is just amazing maybe the track A Farewell To Kings was my third listening of them ,of course, the first track of them was Tom Sawyer or The Trees i dont remember exactly, but after listen every song of them i realized that Rush was a great band in every sense of course they are.

This album has a great cover, I love the album cover is just superb, Can you imagine maybe the guy sit down there, is the King in the concept of this album and wow its a great show for my eyes. Now about the music the sound of this album is unbelievable, I mean every track here is like a little history within and whether you have check the lyrics of the first track in the final line you can notice the name of the third track --Closer to The Heart.... This short track sometimes remember me to the trees , but of course with less strenght, in others words amazing song.

Also in this album we have one of the Rush epicīs, of course this one is Xanadu wow Could be this my favorite track of them? mmm i dont think so but closer. Even Cinderella Man is a great song with Hard rock taste, i love the bass line here. But every great album has a weaker moment and in this case the weak track hear could be Madrigal is a short song without drums at full, but is a great track for this album. And finally Cygnus X-1 the prologue of the history for the main song in the next album, yes i agree with some collaborators here, this song is just superb, Lee is killing in the name of his Rick...

Absolutely this album is a Must in every prog rock collection. Its a beautiful album and of course my favorite one of them., in the 70īs era.

If you havent listen this one, Stop reading my review and go to purchase a copy. It wont dissapoint you. Highly Recommended!!.
