5 stars This one is realy great. It has almost anything. The opening trak is a dynamite with great melodies and powerfull structures. From the clasic guitar to the great rhythm section when lifeson plays his solo this trak is amaizing. The second one is even better. The magnificent Xanadu... this is one of the band best ever. Great percussion in the begining which make it atmospheric, Lifeson's guitar at its best and some very dexterous basslines from Geddy. The melodies and the guitar solo compete a masterpiece. Closer to the heart is a prog hit which doesn't mean that it isn't a very good song. Cinderela man is one of my favorite short traks by Rush with very meorable chorous and very good performance by the band. Madrigal is the light tone the album needs with some very nice keys. The closer is one of Rush's most complex songs with Lee and Peart leading to another masterpiece. Lifeson's riffs are just powerfull and his solo is just what the track needs... This is a superb album overall. If you like prog you should get it.
