5 stars Power Windows finds Rush at the top of their writing and playing ability, with an album of all very well-written songs performed impeccably, and produced tightly with a distinctive electric rock sound with very specific and uniform yet decorated arrangements. The melodies are all strong, all of the lryics are thought provoking, and Rush have a way of throwing in unique unexpected twists that keep things interesting. The songs all have a very high level of energy and a strong, personal spirit to them. Power Windows is not only a showcase of some of the best production of its time, its also one of the best albums from 1985. There are still many prog influences in the writing, evident in "The Big Money", "Manhattan Project", and the sprinting and sparkling "Marathon", and they even go into some neo-prog on "Territories" and the energetically spacey and lyrically moving "Emotion Detector." "Mystic Rhythms" is a one of a kind composition for them, with a drum pattern that is just as catchy as the melodic guitar part.
