5 stars At long last the new songs from the upcoming album Clockwork Angels! This day couldn't have come any sooner.

So being only two songs I suppose this can be broken up into individual reviews of both songs.

"Caravan" starts off good enough. The riff is heavy and the bass line throughout the song is very catchy. The drumming is obviously excellent because you have none other than Neil Peart pounding the skins. The lyrics are a little repetitive but that doesn't seem to matter as the music being played is so loud that it can be hard to pay attention to what Geddy is saying.

"BU2B" is an odd song title and at first I thought it was going to be an instrumental. When this song starts off it may take you a back because of how forceful it sounds. It remains this forceful even when Geddy starts singing. The song settles back out and the sound is similar to that of what you'd hear from Snakes & Arrows. The lyrics to this song are pretty good and again the bass is driving and catchy.

If the new album is like this then we are in for a quite a treat from Rush! Definitely going to be interesting to hear how these songs are live over the summer.
