4 stars This album will always be special to me, because it was the first rush album I heard. I had listened to some random tracks such as Tom Sawyer, Distant Early Warning among others. This album may not be as progressive as Hemispheres or as elegant as Moving Pictures but is still on hell of an album. Even when Rush take a stad at pop music or better yet Pop Prog they are still better than most pop bands. I particularly like Alex LIfesonŽs work because it is very intense and complex. This is also the first album thar Neil Peart rcorded after having Drumming lessons with Freddy Grubber and althout he still sounds like Neil Peart he plays with a completely different feel and expression. The tempos are loser and more sparse but still very intricate and complex (albeit in some songs, not the whole album). Many prog reviewers and friends discard this album as being inferior but if you give it a chace with an open mind youŽll certainly find a lot to love on this album has you have on many others from this extraordinary band.
