5 stars Now THIS album well how do i say this. It's my favorite album off all time. Not kidding, this album start to finish does wonders for me as a musician, songwriter, reviewer and hell a human being. I love every part of this album from the grand epics like Xanadu and Cygnus X-1 Book I: Voyage to the soft short ballad Madrigal. They also were able to score a hit song with Closer to the Heart which is IMO the greatest under 3 min rock song EVER. The musicianship is top notch. Each member at this time was in their prime and the keyboards weren't too heavy yet they were just enough to enhance the mood without taking it away form the overall effect. I could go on and on about this one but i suggest you listen to it yourself and tell me you don't become a Rush fan after that 37 minutes and 37 seconds of greatness. 6 stars. Highlights: A Farewell to Kings, Xanadu, Closer to the Heart, Cinderella Man, Madrigal, and Cygnus X-1 Book I: Voyage.
