3 stars This was the first Rush album that gripped me.

The 70s rock numbers remain but the influence of Peart is phenomenal. By-Tor and the Snow Dog rocks through the decent into the netherworld, peers eerily across the River Styx and lets loose the dogs of war at the tobes of Hades. Classic.

Making Memories is a great little number: but then I love Ramble On. Same vibe. The opening chords and broken chords of Fly By Night are for me the unmistakable signature of Rush. It's rock but it has a very positive optimistic feel. Nothing dark here.

In the End is just one of those classic simple chorded monster songs (slightly more than 4 chords that made a million) but it just has that simple powerful feel.

This is one of my favourite albums but I could not even venture to say it was a masterpiece. If you are a prog-rocker it's a definite 4.
