This album may be a little underrated, but I don't think it's one of Rush's best. Still, it's an important release because it shows a band stretching their prog rock wings. We have true epics for the first time in the Rush catalog ("By Tor and the Snow Dog" from FBN was like a mini epic) in the form of "The Necromancer" and "The Fountain of Lamneth". Sadly, Necromancer is extremely uneven (even boring during the first half), and the three shorter tracks are inconsistent. "Bastille Day" is a great rocker through and through, but "I Think I'm Going Bald" is poor and "Lakeside Park" is kind of bland except for the guitar solos.

Overall it's a little above average, thanks to the ball-crunching "Bastille Day" and sweeping "The Fountain of Lamneth". Probably somewhere in the back half of my top 100 albums of the 70s...and it might just crack my top 10 albums of '75.
