2 stars After the cold war reflexion of Grace Under Pressure, this was a shock.

Boy, what happened between records? Rush got much more lighter, with powder blue suits , super sweet synths and ponytails. Not cool. Just watch the Big Money video and tell me about it after. The song itself is kinda lame, but only in subject. Musically, Power Windows is du jour, with keys, drums and guitars of the era. It sports nice melodies, but the whole thing is a bit too melancholic for my tastes. This is actually the first time that I put a Rush album in the shelf.

Some songs are great values like Mystic Rythms, Territories and Manhattan Project. But for the rest, this is light pink filler. the sound is good for the times, but they did much better with Hold Your Fire.

After the grave lyrics and anxious atmosphere that was Grace Under Pressure, this is a trip to a pastel world.
