Customer Review

on 19 November 2005
While Hold Your Fire was a good album, it seemed too much like a Power Windows 2 - clinically produced stadium rock. Presto takes this formula and re-jigs it with a welcome return to stripped-down music. Gone are the huge swathes of synthesizers and bass pedals to be replaced by well placed guitars (both electric and acoustic - bring back the 70's!), funky bass riffs and pounding drumming. Great songs breathe nicely with the music and are never drowned in the production. Peart's lyrics are thoughtful and add so much to the feel of the tracks. The title track is my favourite - a superb match of searing guitars, great acoustic strums, excellent drumming and great bass playing, along with lyrics that perhaps only 1989 could produce. Nicely varied, this album is simply excellent. Why many Rush fans overlook this album is a mystery.
