Prog Reviewer
2 stars The third Rush album shows real progression and a valuable attempt at leaving their hard rock influences and addapting a more progressive sound. Hovever , as some reviewers have already stated , I don't think they were up to the challenge at this point of time. Both epics do not sound cohesive at all, as the band was still struggling to find their sound.

The shorter songs of the album are average Rush material and with the exception of Bastille Day being a concert favourite there is not much more to be mentioned about it . The three of them are simple 70's hard rock songs and while that's not bad per se , those 3 songs are pretty uninspired.

That being said, I cannot award this album more than two stars. Sorry guys!!
