5 stars This album is without a doubt, the best work put out by Rush (one of the most highly respected bands on the earth) For starters, to shut a lot of nay sayers up, on this album, i'm not sure if it was a conscious effort or not, but Geddy Lee brought his falsetto voice down somewhat. It's still kinda up there, but his screechiness is lacking, which is very well appreciated by many Rush fans, I'm sure. All the songs on here are great, but to really appreciate this album, you have to listen to it all at once. Actually, I look at it as a concept album:

Spirit Of The Radio-Machines are taking the heart and feel out of music as we know it

up to...

Natural Science-Science must be tamed for us, not the other way around.

The other songs do a very nice job of making subsequent points along the line, including a "battle" between the two sides, perhaps something Rush themselves went through. This is a must have. Enjoy it, I know I did.

p.s, it's kind of ironic that after this album, Rush actually did let machines take the heart and soul out of their music for almost two decades.
