4 stars The sudden dark turn of this album may have shut some people off on giving this one a spin but I truly believe that this is one of their absolute best. This album is complex and dark which was a drastic change from Fly By Night which was very light in its sound. But from the first song (Bastille Day) to the ending epic (The Fountain of Lamneth) this album is their first 100% prog album and is fantastic. Some people like to make fun of I Think I'm Going Bald cause the lyrics are honestly pretty stupid but the melody and riff i remember a lot from that song and does get into my head. With The Necromancer and The Fountain of Lamneth Rush gave the 10+ min epics a more full on try which ended up the latter song taking up the entire second side of the LP (remember those?). But each song is honestly memorable for what it is. 4 and a half stars. Highlights: Bastille Day, Lakeside Park, The Necromancer and Fountain of Lamneth.
