Prog Reviewer
3 stars I have held off reviewing this as I don't really have a definitive view of whether its any good. Its that dreaded thing , a non prog album made by a (once) classic prog band. The lads are such great musicians they are clearly not able to make a bad album and clearly this isn't. If you are looking for new ideas some inventiveness and at least an attempt to make something different and new then you will be disappointed. However I doubt anyone purchased this album with their eyes shut. No great surprises and no great risks but fans will see this as almost a strength. The songs are a good level although a notch down from Vapor Trails ,the album this most resembles. There is some good energy and the tightness of the playing will always impress. In the context of a hard rock album this is worth a 4 but as Rush have done this kind of thing better already I don't think it deserves such a high mark.
