3 stars A return to form...

After the mixing debacle that was Vapor Trails, Rush returned to the studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz for their eighteenth studio album. Not only is the overall sound much cleaner and infinitely more tolerable than their previous outing, but the individual compositions are a lot stronger. The appearance of not one, but three instrumental tracks is also a welcome addition as Lee's voice slowly declines with age. A lot of the music has an almost ethnic feel to it and brings back memories of early Peter Gabriel solo era.

When reviewing a band as prolific as Rush in the twilight of their career all you can really do is count the songs you like, and take away the ones you don't.

The Good: Far Cry, Spindrift, The Main Monkey Business, The Way the Wind Blows, Malignant Narcissism.

The Bad: Armor & Sword, Good News First, We Hold On.

The Verdict: In terms of quality it's Counterparts' counterpart.

Starhammer | 3/5 |
