5.0 out of 5 stars Yup. it's that good, 30 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Snakes & Arrows [Jewelcase Version] (Audio CD)
Bought this album a year ago- thought it was great then, and can confirm that goodness knows how many listenings later, it is a cracking album; of similar quality to the Rush of late 70's/ early 80's vintage when I got into them first. Genuinely amazing how this band can still churn out stuff of this calibre after so many years. Highlights must be the real Rush sounding tracks- Armor and Sword, Spindrift, Main Monkey Business, Hope, Malignant Narcissism, but not a bad track to choose from. Of particular note is Alex Lifeson's use of multi-layered acoustic and electric guitars with a tone he hasn't had since Permanent Waves- that vintage Gibson guitar sound is pure bliss to listen to. One gripe- The otherwise excellent "Far Cry" misses out on a guitar solo to propel it into the ranks of Spirit of Radio, Limelight, Subdivisions, as an all time Rush radio friendly classic (though it's success in the US charts would say otherwise).
