How would you rate this Rush long-side epic from Hemispheres?
I give it 3 stars, this song is too long, it has some musically great moments(esp.first 3 minutes), but also some boring and very repetitive parts.

1 is too generous as far as I'm concerned, but that's what I voted for.

Its a horrible sequel to Cygnus x-1, which was exciting and riveting the whole way through. Hemispheres is like the smoke break for the Rocinante galley staff.   
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Five stars.   The greatness of the piece is more than just that it's long and epic; it's the music.   It is the best thing on the album and a real accomplishment for a heavyprog band in '78.

Vastly inferior to part 1 on A Farewell to Kings.  I remember (I was 20-ish) seeing that they were doing a part 2 and getting super excited.  Only to be let down by the boring excesses the band made.  Ho hum.
The rest of the album is brilliant however.

2 stars methinks. I find it rather dull. My mind always starts to wander during it.

Dunno. I like it though.
...Hey can someone make one of these for every Rush song? Might be easier to figure out what Hemispheres should be rated if I knew how I'd rate everything else.
