Album is so overrated, even if it does contain one of rush's most well known classics, 'The Spirit of radio'. I love this from top to bottom.

I disagree, it's not overrated IMO. Overrated to me is an album that gets too much credit, that it does not deserve. This album deserves all the fame and appreciation it gets.

Lol, I was about to say, do you always give ratings of 10 to albums you find overrated?

This was the first Rush album I heard, and it is one of their best works overall I feel.

Never been the biggest Rush fan but this one would be my favourite I think.

This album is nothing compared to the albums in front and after it. Especially Freewill is so bad I feel embarrassed listening to it.

One of my favourite Rush albums. Can't really choose between this one and Hemispheres.

Beautiful album, my favorite from Rush. Great mix of prog and pop rock.

Not too keen on this album, apart from Spirit of the Radio which is one of their best songs. It just sounds a bit too pop for my taste, and not as proggy as their early stuff either which is what I admired most about Rush.

Oh, I would say this is as proggy Rush as you got those days, in line with their other classic albums at that time. But I am also not too keen on the album. Would put it together with A Farewell to Kings in second tier Rush.
Spirit of radio, but also Freewill and Natural Sciences are quite enjoyable songs though.
