5 stars A hard rock classic in very sense of the word, this 5-star classic still features some of the prog leanings that Rush featured on a lot of their early records. In fact, many call this the last prog effort the band ever did, but that is sort of limited thinking, as progressive to Rush has always been more about the vibe and the approach, rather than the length of the songs.

Side 1 of this record has four songs that every Rush diehard fan has probably heard a million times, but time has not been unkind to any of those songs at all; they all still sound terrific, and are all genuine Rush classics, if not hard rock classics, too.

Side 2 is full of major win, too. "The Camera Eye" is a very nice extended piece, "Witch Hunt" is a dark, ominous tune, the first of three in the original "Fear" trilogy (a fourth was done earlier last decade), and "Vital Signs" is the first sign of Rush going full-fledged synthy/electronic, while still managing to rock.

It is hard to believe that this record is almost 30 years old now.

Biff Tannen | 5/5 |
