2 stars On this album producer Peter Henderson (known for is work with SUPERTRAMP) replaced the 'veteran' Terry Brown because Rush was very disappointed about the poor sales from their latest album "Signals". In april 1984 the band released "Grace under pressure", in my opinion Rush went again a few steps further away from their 'power-sympho sound'. They wanted progress (this is the definition of progrock!) so the new songs contained more modern styles and rhythms. Remarkable is the omnipresence of the electronics and the catchy sound from the trio. But only the tracks "Distant early warning", "Red sector a" and "The body electric" makes me feel a bit happy, to me all the other compositions sound too dark or without any tension or adventure. This is very subjective, I admit!
