Il Volo
4 stars Without doubt, the best album of Rush ... I think until the result was a nice rest after the start of trials in the "2112" and "A Farewell to Kings" ...

The opening is a surprise, because it brings a continuation of a great classic of the previous album: it is, no one denies that "Cygnus X-1" continues to visit other worlds and bringing new flavors sound. The level of assemblies with synthesizers and other paraphernalia, part 2 of Cygnus was much simpler, but kept the same themes and objectivity in the rich history and mysticism in the lyrics of Peart.

"Circumstances" is a ballad very interesting and in some ways recalls the hard-rock formula that gave pretty sure the first disc of Rush ...

"The Trees", in my opinion, is the best track on the album and one of the top 10 of Rush. Built in concrete, with a lovely guitar input, as some guitars, lyrics of ecological awareness, a synthesizer solo that makes you think being in the Amazon and one cohesive end.

And finally, we have "La Villa Strangiato" , the most complex of the disc. It is very good, but I honestly do not know which is the main goal of this song, do not know if it's lack of a better interpretation or something, but can not be a candidate's favorite song!

4 stars. Cohesive, technically, a translation of which is the Rush. But like all good record, always has some drawbacks.

Il Volo | 4/5 |
