5 stars This was my first old Rush CD and to me is one of my favorites here we have Rush at their prime in the early 80s before they kinda started to slack off and become more poppy and keyboardy lol. To many people this was the CD that kinda started the prog metal movement and in some ways it does with awesome heavy riffs in the likes of TOM SAWYER and YYZ (two of my most favorite RUSH songs) but even those songs have it all with geddy lee's high pitched vocals and awesome multi-tasking of keyboards and bass, and Alex Lifesons awesome guitar skills and must i say anything about NEIL PEART i mean what hasn't been said about him HE'S UNBELIVABLE in this CD especially in YYZ GAAAAAAH i wish i was that good but i ain't far from it lol. The other songs are definitely worth it here in this album with RED BARCHETTA MAN a very cool track that builds up as the song continues, LIMELIGHT well its VERY 80s lol but i love it so much and i don't know why lol. THE CAMERA EYE shows us that rush still have their epic juices still flowing within them. WITCH HUNT GAH this song is so dark and so cool the way Lee sings in this haunting vocal style and the way peart plays the toms is just so mysterious. and of course you got VITAL SIGNS which to me is like making a trip to Jamaica but its good. DEFINITELY a masterpiece to me since i'm a huge RUSH fan oh i wish they could make another album like this but that's something that we can only hope in our dreams. 5 STARS BABY!!!
