5 stars 1. The Big Money (5:34) 2. Grand Designs (5:05) 3. Manhattan Project (5:04) 4. Marathon (6:09) 5. Territories (6:18) 6. Middletown Dreams (5:15) 7. Emotion Detector (5:10) 8. Mystic Rhythms (5:53)

How opinions differ from reviewer to reviewer. I'm no pop fan and see this and Hold Your Fire as the pinnacle of Rush's output, although there are other good efforts too (Hemispheres, Moving Pictures, Signals). For me 7 of these songs are 5-star quality. Only the rather boring and predictable Manhatton Project lets it down.

This album has great lyrics, fantastic playing, intricate arrangments and good tunes. OK, the songs are relatively short and maybe some have a fairly routine structure, but just listen to what is going on under the surface.

I could listen to this all day.

Solid 4 stars.
