4 stars Ah vapor trails. I used to be the worst enemy of that album when i first heard it. I recomended anyone not to listen to it. Then i put him several times as a background when i was playing on my computer. It must ha been upon the 4th time when i thought ´´whait a minute these are no ordinary compositions´´. I mean ok, there are no epics here. No tracks longer than 6 minutes but the structures sre way too complex for an average rock group. So i gave time to the songs. What i didn´t like was the sound. Imo geddy´s bass is very loud and sometimes covers the others especialy neil. If you hear the tracks live you´ll get a better impresion. What i like now is mainly the songwriting. There are some of the best melodies that these guys ever wrote. They don´t try to impress us on how good players they are, they prefer inteligent arangements that merge the modern sound with their unique touch. Alex doesn´t solo but he plays in a definitly clever way. Neil doesn´t do his treadmark rolls but he plays some amazing rythms. And finaly geddys bass is present heavier than ever without funky elements of the past. Overall give this album some time. It worth it. After all i can´t recall a band that sounds like rush in vt. Enjoy
