This is the last GREAT Rush album in my opinion. The fat old progressive butt cheeks have been exercised, worked over and tightened up to form lean, musical melodic buttocks. I know that sounds REALLLY gay, but in my defense, my girlfriend is looking over my shoulder right now, laughing.

A very unique album. Its still Rush, but they've made yet another healthy quantum leap in style. I love it, although some fans have complained about the radical production technique that has been applied to Geddy's vocals.

Otros super veteranos q sacaron disco... personalmente Rush nuncan me han ido demasiado pero reconozco q son todo unos maestros...

This was the second Rush album I heard (the first was Permanent Waves, which is an utterly astonishing album). My review of Presto is: Where has the magic gone? OK, but - ultimately dull.

From: cntp44 Date: March 24, 2004 at 13:50
After the utter boredom of "Hold Your Fire" and "Power Windows", this was their return to magic. 'Show Don't Tell' is among the best opening songs by any band - ever. Their only release since 'Grace' that entirely convinced me.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 28, 2004 at 16:38
While I agree with the above post that the last two albums were utter bores, this one is not much of an improvement. Sure, they have dropped the new wave stylings of the last few albums to more of a rock format, but the songs are still boring. 4/10

From: Rycheage Date: July 25, 2004 at 20:55
Rush returns to rock after some keyboard-driven material of the last few albums. "Show Don't Tell" is a great start to an overall good record. "The Pass", "Presto" and "Superconductor" are good songs in their own right. Not great Rush, but a marked improvement.

It doesn't sound gay, Koogles, I only wish I'd have thought of such ingenious matching of syllables. I'm married, so I don't care what I sound like. This is a little better but nowhere near the studious work of old.

From: howe Date: April 17, 2005 at 17:01
Godd stuff, as always. Superconductor is one of the best songs these guys ever wrote!

From: lalorock Date: November 24, 2007 at 12:02
Este album hay que escucharlo varias veces para cogerle el gusto,los temas son complicados pero con su respectiva dosis de melodías,de hecho The Pass es un temazo con su atmósfera mística que solo Rush sabe darle,Show don´t tell gran apertura(Neil Peart todo un genio para coordinar los ritmos en su batería),otro gran tema es Superconductor, te engancha con sus ritmos,Hand over fist y Available light grandiosos tambien,para mí gran album a la altura de Grace Under..,pero más difícil de digerir.

I've been listening to RUSH since 81 and for some reason his one gets played more than my other RUSH cd's. I guess it's the memories of where I was in life at that time. I like every song and was lucky enough to catch them on this tour. As always an awesome show.
