Let's get this straight, this is without question a mighty fine album from one of the greatest rock acts of the last 30 years.

This latest album has got some mixed reviews. The negative ones appear to be from those fans who can't let go of the band's 70s output. Face up to it, that was the Rush of 30 years ago and the band have moved on several times since through a succession of equally impressive musical episodes, a feat pretty much unequalled by any of their contemporaries.

As with many a Rush album, you will not fully appreciate what these songs have to offer from the first few listens. This is a most impressive collection of tunes and there is much to process and digest. The production is dense with much instrumental layering and, as ever, Mr Lifeson has achieved some sweet guitar tones throughout both the lighter and heavier songs. Lee & Peart never disappoint, so expect the usual exemplary standards of playing.

Despite the above, you do need at least 6 or so listens for things to really click into place. When they do, I'm sure you'll agree that this is one of Rush's best offerings for many a year.

Highlights for me are the opening track which sets things in motion neatly, Ghost Rider, Stars Look Down, How It Is, Earthshine and the Title track.

I am constantly amazed that this band can produce such fresh-sounding and original music after so many albums and years together. If you are a fan of the band and have been put off by other reviewers, buy without question, but be prepared to persist with repeated listenings. Anyone who appreciates intelligent rock or quality musicianship cannot fail to be impressed by this. Let's hope the band continue well beyond their recent 30th anniversary.

When I first heard this album, I hated it. I couldn't wait for it to end and when it did, I packed it away and forgot about it for a while. I then went through a period where there was nothing new I wanted to get so I was stuck with the albums I had, one of these being Vapor Trails. With some trepidation, I put it in the stereo and pressed play. I still wasn't sure about it after the second listen but I kept going with it and what a joy it's become. With each new listen, I find another layer. The words fit with the music instead of being slightly set apart from it. They mesh perfectly. The musicianship is breath-taking as always but this time seems to be an integral aspect rather than them just playing widdly-widdly stylings. Geddy's voice is beautiful and his bass work serves to underpin the music this time round. Alex's guitar playing creates a stunning wall of sound and gives bands like Tool a good run for their money, showing there's life in the old dog yet. Neil shows just why he is probably the greatest rock drummer on the planet today. I am ever so sorry he had to go through what he did in the run up to this album but he's come back, bigger badder and better than ever before. This genuinely is Rush at their very best, just don't expect too much too soon. This album will just get better with age and patience.

In my opinion Rush's last album is always the worst. Until you've listened to it a couple of times, that is. The reason is simple: Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart have a habit of exploring new musical pastures every couple of albums. So, every couple of albums they divert from what you have become to see as 'standard Rush'. This shocks at first, because they deliver something else than what you expected. But listen to the new stuff a few times and gradually you realise what genius they've bestowed on their latest effort. They have done that since the very beginning: just compare 'Fly by Night', '2112', 'A Farewell to Kings', 'Moving Pictures', 'Signals' and 'Presto' to name but a few. The first time I heard most of those albums I also frowned. A few years and a few CDs (or records) onward and they've all become classic masterpieces. And so it will be with 'Vapor Trails' as well. Sounding strange and unRushlike at first, pure genius after a while.

The guys have not sounded this enthusiastic in years! There is a focus and freshness in this album that has been missing for sometime, the lyrics are also back to their high standards.
Sonically, it's not at all dated unlike the preceeding 'Test For Echo' (their worst IMHO). The playing is tight as ever. Although there is hardly anything in the way of guitar solos, it is appropriate given the nature of the songs, there is so much going on texturally and rhythmically that it never drags. The vocals have generally gone back up in pitch - particularly on the propulsive opener (complete with evil-sounding riff) 'one little victory'. The drums and bass are good as ever. Overall, this is a song-oriented album rather than a show-off exercise (even though they cannot help but reveal how good they are, it's just obvious when you hear it)
Highlights would be 'Earthshine' (Think Permanent Waves feel but with immensely heavy riff), 'Freeze' (awesome juggling of time signatures but somehow has a groove - a classic), and 'How It Is' (relatively hopeful and simple - similar to Closer to the Heart), the enthusiastic 'Ceiling Unlimited' (made for playing live), elsewhere, the playing on tracks like 'Secret Touch' is jaw-dropping, as is inventiveness - check out 'The Stars Look Down'.
I would stop short of saying it is a classic like albums 2112 through to Moving Pictures, but it's almost there along with 'Power Windows'.
