3 stars Well, not my favorite Rush disc. Not by a long shot. This just has a huge unfinished feel to it that I can't get past. Also, the sound just isn't very clear, at least not on the disc I have. In terms of content, the shorter songs like "Bastille Day" and "Lakeside Park" don't grab me and the longer epics feel like they are rough drafts of something that is coming later but never arrives. The longer songs show the potential of where the band was heading on 2112, HEMISPHERES, etc...but potential is the key word here. This is sort of like "Rush, Take 1". I will allow this 2 stars for music and bump it up a star for potential. SO 3 stars. Not great, not bad, but acceptable. At least it is better than FLY BY NIGHT or SIGNALS.
