3 stars A six year wait for this album since the last one - was it worth it? Peart had come through a very torrid period relating to life and was now ready to continue with the band and with the music. Again the band use the harder rock approach on this album. Highlights for me here are "One Little Victory", "Ghost Rider", "Secret Touch", "Earthshine". Personally I prefer the previous release to this one. There is nothing wrong with the music but there is not much that stands up and grabs me by my eyebrows. Formulaic hard rock with no direction is how I'd describe this effort. Kind of like Rush coasting down a hill in neutral gear. Not a bad album by any means but not an attention holder for me either. A three star effort for me - no more and no less.
