4 stars Another masterpiece of the Canadian trio.

Definitely there's no denying that Rush's best albums are those produced between 1976 and 1981. "A Farewell to Kings" is an album that period.A substantial improvement compared to "2112", but not as good as "Permanent Waves "Or" Moving Pictures "(I'm a fan of the mainstream phase of them), it is still a strong production.

The absolute highlight here is the epic "Xanadu, " which has to be one of the best bands ever of Rush.Unfortunately the another epic, "Cygnus X-1" is disappointing, just a bunch of ideas thrown at random (although one heavy metal sensation at the end of it is interesting), this track does not close the album bem.As other songs are short songs, among which stands out is the title track, the album opener.

5 stars: A Farewell To Kings, Xanadu

4 star: Closer to the Heart, Cinderella Man​​, Madrigal

3 stars: Cygnus X-1

Average: 4.16
