4 stars In 1997, Neil Peart suffered a terrible tragedy that threaten not only his life but the life of the band but after 5 years of healing, he was ready to go again. With Vapor Trails Rush came back with a new heaviness not found on Counterparts but they really deliver in some anger and rage courtesy of Neil. The lyrics for the songs are just as moving on songs like Ghost Rider and Secret Touch. With One Little Victory, Neil comes in with a heavy drum track and stays for the whole song which in a way celebrates the fact that Rush survived that 5 year painful journey Neil had to go through.Overall, this is a great album to signify the return of this great band but some of the songs don't have a lasting appeal. 4 stars. Highlights: One Little Victory, Ghost Rider, Secret Touch, Earthshine
