Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is one of the two legitimate masterpieces that Rush has produced (the other being 2112.) Every song on it, even Entre Nous and Different Strings, is brilliant. Spirit of the Radio is perhaps the best song that they have ever released, although Subdivisions gives it a lot of competition. Freewill has been one of their concert staples since it's release. The dark and atmospheric Jacob's Ladder goes off in a direction that Rush has rarely explored in a magnificent manner. And finally we have Natural Science, which is a brilliant epic that ranks with the best of anything that has been released by other prog bands. It may not have quite the story that 2112 had, but the music here is unequaled elsewhere.

Only a handful of albums this good have ever been released. If you haven't heard this one, find a copy and listen to it.

5 stars all the way.
