  I wonder why this album is not among the Top 200 albums.

EDIT: i was wrong, it needs 200 votes, since it is Top 200. Sorry.

  Awesome album. It's a pity Rush lost the touch after "Show Don't Tell" because it was such an amazing progressive hard rock band back in the days.
I still love the 70s and 80s stuff when I'm in the mood for something less aggressive (compared to Thrash and Black Metal) but I've never been able to enjoy their 90s and 00s stuff.

  Well deserved to be in the top 200. Quite possibly my favorite Rush album.

Rating: 8 The trees has possibly the best lyrics ever. Whether you take it as some social-political metaphor or a just a cute story about fighting foliage its hilarious
