4 stars This could be arguably Rush's most commercial album because it has alot of pop elements in the songs but even Rush can make pop not suck. The opener, Dreamline, is a top charting single for a reason this song is a great song that personified Rush in the 90s and still remains one of their best. The next few songs are kinda in the same vein except for Bravado. This album has the first instrumental since Moving Pictures with Where's My Thing? which is a very poppy sounding instrumental but great nonetheless. The rest of the album after that is pretty forgettable to be honest with songs like The Big Wheel and Neurotica. But Hersey and Ghost of a Chance are great songs that always stick in my mind every time I listen to it. Hersey is about the ending of Soviet Russia and how happy they were to be free and Ghost of a Chance is easily the best "love" song Rush has ever done and is still very beautiful and leaves a smile on my face no matter what. Overall, a great album that went Multi Platinum but got overshadowed IMO with its successor. 4 stars. Highlights: Dreamline, Bravado, Roll the Bones, Where's My Thing?, Hersey and Ghost of a Chance.
