5 stars Another great masterpiece of the canadians.After albums enough toward a more progressive side and "epic", the sound here is more commercial than previous albums (is it because they had reached 80 years?), but even so the songs become weaker, however, all are very good! This album may not have made the success of its successor (which is still the magnum-opus of the band for me) but here's one of their biggest hits "The Spirit of Radio", which opens the album with energy.The other tracks are no less great, though "Natural Science" really stands out: it is a mini-epic, perhaps not as "2112" or "Cygnus -X1, but highly progressive and good-worked.A perfect music for an perfect album.5 stars.
