3 stars A bridge a bit too wide to cross to Caress Of Steel, this is unfortunately the " fall Guy" for that transition yet it is still not too bad an album and probably gets for more negative feedback than it deserves. " ...Snow Dog" is a classic as is the much maligned " Rivendell". Anyway overall a great evolutionary piece of work, this too is art, if well delivered so the migration to bigger and better things would take place. This is a good album, Neil Peart taking over an irreplaceable domain not withstanding his predecessor's contribution. Flickering images by night perhaps but vivid concrete hard edged evidence on reflection to a bolder more progressive future. Not for nostaliaphobes. Three solid stars.
