Review by Matti
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars These tracks are from Power Windows album, one of the many from their 80's synth era. It has some good songs but it's not nearly as strong album as Signals that started the era. Both 'Big Money' and 'Marathon' are quite typical: powerful playing and a lot of synths but the songs themselves get a bit boring before they reach the end. Maybe I prefer the latter of these two, it's not as repetitive as 'Big Money' and the atmosphere of the physical ordeal of marathon is captured nicely. Both songs were included also on the live double album Show of Hands, 'Big Money' being the grandiose opener if I remember right.

2½ stars. Not a terrible single if one enjoys 80's Rush. The same picture appears on the back of Power Windows.

2 stars Hot on the heels of the 1985 Rush album 'Power Windows' came this 1986 single with a delightful picture sleeve based on the album design. The single was the familiar Rush sound with delay echo guitars and synth pop, drums and bass along with Lee's pristine melodic vocals. 'The Big Money' has a fantastic melody and there is Lee slappin' de bass. Lifeson is terrific on lead guitar and Peart keeps a consistent tempo that drives it along. The presence of synths is overpowering but it works well enough.

The production on the album is treble turned to the max and sounds a bit gutless in the bass department. It is 80s to the max and as a result thins out the heaviness replacing it with crystalline clean textures which is not a good thing for Rush. A bit of dirty guitar would not have harmed the sound but all is restrained and Lee hardly troubles his distortion pedal.

'Marathon' on the B side, is a wonderful song with an exceptional melody and I love this most of all I think on 'Power Windows' album. The lead break is killer and if only they would stick to this formula. I mean we all love hearing Lifeson blaze away on his guitar. The synths are dominant but here it works beautifully. The chorus is one of the all time great Rush melodies. It has a majestic sound and I can never tire of that uplifting tune. Thank heavens for songs like these which make this a single to grab for collectors. The picture sleeve alone is worth the price for collectors.
