5 stars One kind of album I like to review are the ones that got me to like a specific artist and Hemispheres is one of them. In a world of commercial music it's good to see that there's still so much to discover back in the 70s and 60s... Enough for this, let's get to the review. First, "Hemispheres", one of the best big rides that Rush composed through the years. No, it won't beat the vocal intensity shown in "2112" but still, I loved the song so much that after that I HAD TO hear all of Rush's discography! 20 minutes later, "Circumstances". Good musical performance but I really like the lyrics on it; "Plus ça change! Plus c'est la même chose!". Track 3, "The Trees", now this is something, a cute little guitar intro followed by a powerful drum start that will for sure, make you "air drumming"! The song goes from aggressiveness to calmness in a very unique and nice way. If I though I'd heard to best from this release after hearing "Hemispheres" I was wrong! "The Trees" certainly has is place in Rush's 5 best songs ever! The following, "La Villa Strangiato" is a real musical piece of art. The musical strenght of each musicians is brought to the edge. It's mystical and it's sounds good. Another song that could easily putted in the Rush's top 5 ever. You canno't fin your way in Rush discography? Try Hemispheres! You won't regret it!
