5 stars "Permanent Waves" is rather short, clocking in around 35 minutes, but what a 35 minutes though! Excellent music throughout the album. "PW" seems to be the last of the pack in an array of heavy, progressive rock throughout the 70s era, alongside "2112", "Hemispheres", and "A Farewell to Kings" before the mainstream success of "Moving Pictures". A consistent approach to this album, creating enjoyable songs that will never cease to be. Strong efforts here are clearly seen, producing strong results. Recommended for those who are more ensconced in classic rock and of course for anyone curious about Rush, this would be a great album to begin with.

1. "The Spirit of Radio" - 9/10

2. "Freewill" - 9/10

3. "Jacob's Ladder" - 8.5/10

4. "Entre Nous" - 8.5/10

5. "Different Strings" - 9/10

6. "Natural Science" - 10/10

54/6 = 90%, 5 stars, barely! When listened to as a whole, it's definitely more of a 5 star experience.

Lark the Starless | 5/5 |
