5 stars This is the begining of the fifth album cycle of Rush where they ended up gaving away their keyboards and concentrated more on rhythm and melody, bringing in front the heavy and monster tones of the guitar the way it should be by using powerful and killer riffs.

As many people have said, the production is distorted when playing this masterpiece loud, as it should be, although, none of Rush albums deserved to be played at a lower volume. So lets hope to see on the racks a remastered version of this great piece of art. But, overall, production is not a major issue/concern for not having this album on your collection.

Vapor Trails is a very emotional and agressive album, and I do believe this is the direction Rush is taking for the next four albums (well, at least that's what I expect from them). Number 2 album from this fifth cycle (18th studio album after VT) is on the way and planned to be released on 2006 if nothing changes.

So, lets forget about all the production matters and give this jewl what it deserves... And that is a five stars because besides all the power that is included, Vapor Trails is a an essential masterpice for progressive music with its new and powerful direction since 1974...
