3 stars 3.5 stars really!! Rush's fourteenth studio album proves that, even though not like the old days, this band is still able to rock, writing a really good album that is definitely worth listening if you're a Rush fan.

The style of "Roll The Bones" is very modern, even more than all their synth rock albums from the mid-late 80's. For example, in the title track for some moments there are some brief semi rap lines, that might scare some die hard fans. However, their ability in performing never disappoints, not even in this one. Maybe not Neil Peart's best album, but Geddy Lee has some quite good moments, with his outstanding bass playing.

My favorite songs are "Dreamline", very catchy and melodic, "Bravado" a nice and mellow song, played with many synths and keyboards, which give the main mark of the song. Also, "Ghost of a Chance" is excellent, with a beautiful and powerful melody, touching in the mellow moments, probably my favorite of the album. Also great are the instrumental " Where's My Thing?", "The Big Wheel", song that really makes you want to dance, "Neurotica" and the conclusive track "You Bet your Life". To sum up, a really good album, I really expected it to be worse. Not bad.
