4 stars If it wasn't for La Villa Strangiato, this would be an average album. This song is probably one of the best instrumentals ever played. It flows beautifully and moves flawlessly from one type of guitar playing to another. Just about perfect.

In addition, the song Trees is very good. It is a simple story put forth in the lyrics, but yet very insightful. The music is also very smooth and catchy, with some unusual percussion sounds throughout.

Although not on par with 2112, this album is better than all rush albums after A Farwell to Kings, which get way too poppy for me.
