3 stars I would review this in terms of progressive rock, but it would get barely any stars.

This very 90's album by Rush is a nice addition to any collection, just not to prog.

Dreamline, not very good in many ways. Not my favorite song. (6/10)

Bravado isn't that good either, I just don't get the first two. (5/10)

ROLL THE BONES! OOOH YEAH! Okay, now it's getting interesting. Nice bass line, nice drumming. The guys were really thinking when they wrote this, because it's awesome. (9/10)

Face Up, starts off with some wicked drum fills, any doesn't let up at all. This song is one of the best in the album. (8/10)

Where's My Thing? The best off of the album and the only progressive song. This song is entirely instrumental and features a few odd time signatures here and there, very nice. Overall, solid structure and great bass lines. (10/10)

The Big Wheel, starts off VERY proggy, I was expecting an awesome prog mini epic right here. Then it turns into this 70's country/rock crap. Totally ruined this song for me. I didn't even listen to the whole thing. (4/10)

Heresy, starts off with a marching band like snare beat, then turns into this 90's cliche song. Something just struck me with this song, because I really like it. It's probably the softer vocals that caught my interest. (8/10)

Ghost Of A Chance actually fooled me, I thought it was going to be another lame song on this album. It starts off cliche of the 90's era, but then starts into this echoey proggy guitar line song. This song cracks like a whip, great stuff. (10/10)

Neurotica, this song hits me emotionally, for some reason, It reminds me of a 90's video game song. I'm a video game addict, so this hits home for me. The song is very solid, the chorus is sweet and it's just nice. Lyrics are very nice too. (8/10)

You Bet Your Life, the big closer on this album. Nothing special really, I messed around with Itunes, and every time I randomly dropped the time clicker, I heard Just Another. Exactly what this song is, just another. (6/10)

Treasure | 3/5 |
