3 stars Rush - Grace under pressure from 1984. An almost new wave album with a lot of modern keys and flat synthesisers. Anyway Rush always knew toying with diffrent aproches of their heavy prog, from a Led Zeppelin sound in the early career , now reaching to a modern sound full of electronic elements , sometimes not far from Tomas Dolby but a little more edged. Well in my view this is not a bad album at all with fine moments like:Distant early warning, Afterimage, Red sector, The enemy within (Part I of Fear), these tunes keep the Rush sound but combined with a good dose of synthsisers and electronic keys. It's obvious , because in that days, mid '80's this electronic music was very popular, even an icon in prog like Rush tries to incorporate in their sound this elements, but for sure thay've done it much better than many other bands who only tried to combined these two opposite genre but never succeded (one ex Is Jethro Tull's Under wraps) Not among my fav Rush albums, even weacker than Signals, previous one, and not that intristing like the followers, Rush new to joggling with their possibilityes and talent, resulting a 3 star album for me.
