3 stars To follow up 2112 with a winner would have been difficult and although this album doesn't quite match up it is very strong. 1. A farewell to Kings - very strong opener to the album. Stunning Lifeson guitar work. 2. Xanadu - Very good epic track but not up there with their best. 3. Closer to the Heart - I believe that this track is almost a peoples' anthem in Brazil. Very powerful track both musically and lyrically. 4. Cinderella man - I enjoy this shorter Rush track very much. 5. Madrigal - quiet short piece. 6. Xygnus X-1. - A science fiction epic track in subject matter. I enjoy it well enough but it isn't one of my all time favorites by a long way.

Strong album that doesn't reach the heights of 2112 in my opinion. It's a now and then visitor to my playlists when I feel like listening to Rush.
