5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Designs
Power Windows is that rarest of animals; a perfect album. Every track, the mood of the album, is electric. It is also one of the very best Rush albums. Polished, slick and glossy but more importantly, it is infused with layered depths of emotional and musical intelligence.

Grand Designs and Middletown Dreams overflow with excitement, powerful pulsating...

3.0 out of 5 stars Power Windows
Not the best album produced by Rush but always been a fan of the unusual vocal, if you are a Rush fan you will enjoy but not their best piece

4.0 out of 5 stars Rush - Power Windows, 20 April 2014

This review is from: Power Windows (Audio CD)
This CD was released after "Grace Under Pressure" and that this variant is more. It is an easy CD to be accepted than the former, being a disc with the hottest music and with good quality. The track "Manhattan Project" is perhaps the best, but neither is bad. The sound on this disc follows a more definite and tangible result. Ok! Note 8.0.

Excellent album. Unfortunately cd case cracked but otherwise brilliant addition to my collection. A cd from the best Rock band in the last 40 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, but unspectacular, 13 Mar 2014

By 1985 Rush had settled into a groove and 'Power Windows' feels like a re-run of 'Grace Under Pressure' to me, albeit with a political/scientific emphasis. This is not a bad Rush album - as ever the musicianship is excellent - but with the exception of 'Mystic Rhythms' (and possibly 'Middletown Dreams') nothing stands out in particular.

Got the version where Amazon give the CD free and you buy the MP3 tracks.

This is like the Yes 90125 album - it kind of stands out.

For the trivia officianados, a power window is mainly two things:
1 yes the slidey thing on the car that lets rain in via a switch
2 when factories want to do a big run of stuff or foundries melt a load of metal, they tell the power companies in advance - the power company lets them know the time period when there will be sufficient extra capacity laid on for that purpose without it dragging the whole grid down - this period of power availability is the 'power window'.

Inference being, there is a window of opportunity when things could be created, and Rush took it to make this album?

So there. I am turning to close the blinds now - a little slow, a little stout...

I originally had this album on tape and played it to death. I was pleasantly surprised to find it available at a budget price. Time hasn't withered it at all. This music is timeless, and you'd be hard put to find so much pleasure for the money. Do your ears a treat, and buy it!

Bought as they played most of it on the recent tour, excellent buy, some of the Rush fans dont like the music they produced in the 80's but I think they move with the times thats why the current line up have been together for forty years

Despite it's age there's freshness to this album that seems to make even todays rock music sound arthritic. Pathetic even.

This Rush album, above all others, seems to pull in the best bits of all it's predecessors AND the ones that followed, and in doing so becomes the gold standard by which all other rock albums - and not just Rush - must be judged by.
Power Windows hits like an early malicious Tyson blow, with the trio harnessing all their powers into a cacophony of crash chords (Big Money), orgasmic guitar solos (Emotion Detector), keyboard meltdowns (Marathon), crazy bass licks (Territories) and merciless, intelligent drumming throughout (well,what else did you expect?). Truly the ultimate soundtrack for the greed driven aspirations that still drive us.
