One of Rush's finest moments, second only to Moving Pictures. This album includes two classic songs, "The Spirit of Radio" (which has one of the most recognisable guitar riffs in all of rock) and "Freewill". There's also the epic-feeling "Jacob's Ladder", as well as "Entre Nous", a sort of intellectual love song (if such a thing can be said to exist). The introspective "Different Strings" and the anthemic "Natural Science" (which clocks in at over nine minutes) close the album. Though there are only six songs on Permanent Waves, it's enough; the material is rich enough that more of it would be like overdosing on chocolate. -- Genevieve Williams

It has the feel of a band confident in their ability to entertain whilst no losing their grip on their personal musical direction. There are still songs of epic proportions here, such as 'Natural Science' and 'Jacob's Ladder', but they have come a long way since the early epics.
For me 'Jacob's Ladder' stands out as it has such simple riffs yet a lot of experimentation. There is one point where all 3 of them are playing in different time signatures but they are still producing music that is accessible.
One of their best!
Never before have I witnessed such perfect equality by all members mutually contributing to one rock group until discovering Rush, the Rush trio are at their very best in this 1979 recording, and this album is perhaps their very best, every track is a reward, and must be heard again and again and again, seemingly with no vanishing point in enjoyment.
For me this exceeds all Rush's previous albums combined, and that perceivably is a difficult thing to achieve, unless you are Rush!.
The style of track composition is similar and often reflective of that of their previous 'musical journeys', though with a marked tone down in epic proportion, but taken 'as a whole', it far transcends the standard set by the last albums!
Incredible time shifts and lightening pace in playing feature often. Beautiful acoustics, drums, guitar and bass grace. An improvement by all the musicians is to be noted... it is unbelievable!
Listening through the album (in trance mode), I eventually reach the track entitled 'Natural Science' (Gasp!). I rate this track upon the finest of Rush tracks ever! If you want to hear it? It's on here!, and my goodness, it rocks!
It was produced, like all the preceding albums, by Terry Brown who did a great job on it - nothing fancy, just a very well recorded album that allows the superb musicianship to shine through.
The best way of hearing this album has always been via vinyl. The original UK vinyl release was excellent but this Mobile Fidelity 180g reissue is even better! If you've only ever heard this album via CD or download and you possess a high quality hi-fi separates system with a good turntable then you owe it to yourself to get this superb vinyl edition. Only then will you realise what you have been missing!
The only thing I can criticise about this edition is the reproduction of the cover artwork - it is too dark and too contrasty - disappointing! The quality of the vinyl, however makes up for this.

This album is a shining example of the mastery of Rush. Simple licks overlayed with more complex bass lines and drums appearing where no mere mortal can put them. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Paul Dugdale
