5 stars I already possessed Fly by Night and Vapor Trails when yesterday I bought Moving Pictures. These two first acquisitions were very disappointing and I wondered why there were so many good reviews for Rush. Moving Pictures is the answer for all of this. All the songs are great, some fabulous. It sounds very 80s (synths of course) but it sounds good like Saga managed to do. Well the comparison with Saga doesn't stop here, some of the lyrics, especially Tom Sawyer, are very close to the mind and vision of some Saga songs. Very typical of the way of thinking in the 80s, great analysis of work, money, ambition, values. Moreover, bass and drums are excellent, guitar more average for me but not bad of course. To conclude, an excellent album for sure, it deserves 5 stars and to be in every rock collection, whatever you're a prog fan or not.
