4 stars (9/10)

I don't understand why this one doesn't get more love. It's heavy in the right places, with a driving riff that really gets the blood pumping, but still shifting well between that and the melody. Geddy's vocals are actually pretty good too (and obviously bass as well), not to mention the really scorching guitar solo courtesy of Alex Lifeson.

This song got me really excited about "Clockwork Angels", more so than the other singles. Lyrically it seems to have the protagonist looking back at the adventure he has had and reflecting that he would "do it all again". In interviews, Geddy Lee has made comparisons to Rush's own career, talking about how if he were given the chance to do it all again (Rush) he would, "not because it was perfect... because it was FUN". That just about sums up this song, it really recaptures some of the fun that Rush brought to the table all those years ago.
