4 stars RUSH - HOLD YOUR FIRE (1987) - 3,8/5

Just like with the preceding 3 albums of RUSH's "atmospheric prog pop/rock" era, this album holds a high standard from start to finish. It is slightly better than the predecessor POWER WINDOWS as it has a few more standout tracks like the opening FORCE TEN, the deliciously catchy PRIME MOVER and the mini-epic MISSION. The sound isnt as in-your-face as it was on POWER WINDOWS and the keys are more in the background which is a definite plus. This would sadly be RUSH's last great album, but it is a fitting end to an all too underrated era in RUSH's illustrious career.

Caprianders | 4/5 |
