5 stars My 3rd review, yes! Okay here it goes.

"Caravan" and "BU2B" are great because these songs are hard rock, but still progressive like Rush's albums from the mid-1970's to early 1980s. As we all know, Rush during this past decade, has been reconnecting with their music and roots such as their recent album, "Snakes And Arrows". But while it still does have the rock energy from early 70s and 90s Rush, it also.... well forget it! I'll just review the songs!

"Caravan" starts out with the synth-laden riffs from "Permanemt Waves" and "Moving Pictures" and then Alex Lifeson comes out with this huge, ballsy riff and then, the song jogs into your memory. Geddy Lee's vocals on that song really seem to have fit in the song, with his harmonized tone carring the heavy song. And who doesn't like the lines from the lyrics, "I can't stop thinking big"? Probably a bunch of garage and emo's who cut themselves while listening to My Chemical Romance. "BU2B" isn't bad either. In fact is the great follow up to "Caravan", with solid drumming, cramping guitar riffs, deep-dark bass sounds, and of course Gaddy's soothing vocals.

Well, the album doens't come out until 2011, but we are pretty close. And hopefully Rush's new album will soon get things back on track, and by that, I mean I'm hoping that this album will CRUSH all of those lame artist's so-called "musical talent", and we can finally go back to listening to the music that matters the most, and that's a good ol' fashion of Rock 'n Roll!
