4 stars I can't really add much more to what has already been said about this album ; it is a very good album indeed, musicianship is top-notch as usual, poly-synths play a large part in the overall sound, Peart's drumming has a slightly raw quality to it, Geddy's bass playing is complex and busy and Lifeson lets it rip on the guitar - you probably already know this. Anyways, to mention one or two highlights : the middle section of 'Losing It' features an excellent violin solo over the top of one of the most powerful, adrenalin surging jams you're likely to hear and it's in 11/8 (or alternates between a bar of 6, then a 5 - but it's exhilirating), and 'Chemistry' has everything in the right place : precision drums and a nicely toned bass sound. Excellent album, but it's hard for Rush to better the insanely brilliant 'Moving Pictures'.
