2 stars Mid 1985 Rush released "Power windows", the sound is very impressive but many songs sound too similar. Alex Lifeson almost drowns in his wide range of pedal-effects! Nonetheless, songs like "Manhattan project" (about the atomic bomb), "Marathon" (about the persistence you need to make your dreams come true) and the compelling "Mystic rhythms (featuring ethnic atmospheres) are lush and elaborate compositions. After a few sessions I had very mixed feelings about Rush, I was afraid that one of my favorite bands was slipping out of my hands because they wanted to sound progressive and to develop themselves instead of making 'prog' like on "A farewell to kings" and "Moving pictures", what a paradox!
