One of my favorite Rush albums. Jacob's Ladder is my fav here. Spirit of Radio is an all time classic. Freewill,Entre Nous......Why has`nt anyone commented on this great album??

From: illimey Date: February 24, 2004 at 11:02
I don't know, Chip! This one was my introduction to Rush, and so far I have not heard anything else by them that comes close. Of course, that is just my peculiar opinion, but Permanent Waves has almost everything in it that I look for in music. Endless melody, emotion, intelligence and superb musicianship. The sound is also utterly unmistakable, yet it doesn't lose anything in it's quest for uniqueness. I haven't heard Rush's most recent release... time to go read the reviews on this site!!

people will all flock together & sing praises in groups to what they think is the best-ie-2112, & while 2112 is yet another quality Rush album, only the die-hards truly appreciate Rush's perfect 10 opus'. This one & A Farewell to Kings! Natural Science, Entre Nous, Jacobs Ladder- maybe you have to be a musician to appreciate stuff like this.That would explain the few posts- these people have no musical sophistication. Don't believe me? For kicks, look & see how many postings crap like poison get

From: Biology Date: March 13, 2004 at 15:37
Natural Science is one of the best songs Rush has ever done... and that's saying something!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 28, 2004 at 16:30
Rush with their first big breakthrough album. The first two tracks are my favorite songs by the band, but the rest of the album is slightly boring when compared to "Freewill" and "Spirit Of Radio. 6/10

From: Rycheage Date: July 25, 2004 at 20:58
Other than 'Moving Pictures' and 'Countrparts', this is the best Rush album. "Spirit Of Radio" and "Freewill" are still staples on classic rock radio and "Natural Science" is a progressive rock fan's wet dream. The subtle changes are extraordinary. This is Rush doing what they do best. Rock in a progressive way.

From: Propane Date: December 3, 2004 at 11:40
Another timeless classic for which Rush is so widely known around the globe. Blistering musicianship on this one.

From: vanitybinge Date: January 14, 2013 at 7:42
Awesome rock album, I like this one better than Moving Pictures

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 6, 2016 at 9:06
Prog Power Pop Rock album in here ..."Spirit Of Radio" & "Freewill" were and still are when playing live the hit singles of this release...track 4 is also pretty nice.80/100
