Prog Reviewer
4 stars One of the most overrated albums on this site. I love Rush, but this album, like DSOTM, has bit off more than it could chew, substance wise.

We have the classics, Tom Sawyer and YYZ. Two incredible songs unfortunately, especially as short as they are, does not make the entire album a masterpiece. Red Barchetta is a good song as well, but the rest of the album is shrouded in mediocrity.

Add some other impressive songs and no doubt this album would deserve the praise it receives.

Unfortunately for me, the first 3 songs can't justify this being a masterpiece, although those first 3 songs are masterpieces in themselves.
