5 stars With this one Rush was on a clock either make a successful album or die as a band. So they pretty much said "Fuck it, were gonna do what we want to do and if its the last one fine." With this one you can hear the anger they had at the time on the epic 20+ min piece which is a fantastic track start to finish better than The Fountain of Lamneth from the previous album. They got the epic song right with this one but it almost makes the other songs on this album pale in comparison. A Passage to Bangkok is a great drug song but it worked better live IMO. The Twilight Zone and Something for Nothing are really great songs as well. Overall, this is Rush's first 5 star album just pound for pound a great album that should not be passed up by hardcore proggies or even the casual listener. 5 Stars. Highlights: 2112, A Passage to Bangkok, The Twilight Zone and Something for Nothing.
