5 stars And so another masterpiece was created by Rush. After their landmark A Farewell to Kings, it was going to be tough for Rush to top themselves. Well they did with this work of art. The title song is what made the album, with lyrics alluding to famous greeks (Dionysus and Apollo). I especially like the guitar tone that Alex uses on this album. Peart adds another level to his drumming with incredible hi-hat work on all of the tracks, especially the instrumental "La Villa Strangiato". Geddy's use of keyboards is more prevalent here than in AFTK, using it to add texture to each track. Overall, a 70's Rush fan could not ask for more. If you don't own it, I highly recommend purchasing this album.
