4 stars After they toured Moving Pictures and Exit...Stage Left, Rush could've easily gone in and did Moving Pictures Part II but they didn't and took another route with this album and i applaud them for not falling into the same issue most bands do when they popular and that's repetition. With the opening of Subdivisions you can tell Rush was going a different direction and it may have shut off some people due to the over use of synths but i think it works. They have been slowly including the keyboards into their sound since A Farewell to Kings in 1977 (See that review for more info) but i feel they found the perfect balance in songs like Countdown and New World Man. Overall this album is very good but has some down points like The Weapon and The Analog Kid, but is a good album. 4 stars. Highlights: Subdivisions, Chemistry, Digital Man, New World Man, Losing It and Countdown.
