5 stars This one is my last 5star review for Rush. Released after the masterpiece Hemispheres was quite a surprise becouse of the change of sound. Influenced by the new wave but having true progresive elements Rush deliver a work of great power. It begins with easy listening tracks like Spirt of radio and Freewill but inside the common structures one can find prog solos , influences from other music styles like regge and some realy clever parts by every member.Jacobs Ladder and Natural Science are the album's epics and they are among Rush' best tracks ever with realy great melodies and twists and turns that are part of Rush' originality. Fialy Different Strings is one of the best prog ballads ever and it gives the album the softer tone that it needs. Highly recomended...
