4 stars Without a doubt, HEMISPHERES belongs up their in the high pantheon of great Rush classics. I not sure if it my favorite, but it is close. The extended story of "Hemispheres" is my favorite of the Rush epic tunes. Great story, great music, great music. Also fantastic are "Circumstances": a shorter powerful classic Rush piece, and "The Trees", a nice little morality story about...well trees! The only part here on this album that does not really grab me is the instrumental adventure of "La Villa Strangiato". This has never really been a Rush classic for me the way many others see it. Not sure why, but it just has never really clicked with me the way the rest of the album does. (Maybe if it was the starting track?). That aside this is still a classic album from the classic period of Rush. An easy 4 stars, really about 4 1/2.
