Genesis meets Led Zeppelin ?
The first song dictates the whole concept of the album, which is the constant battle we fight inside ourselves; the battle of heart and mind. It's a psychological study about the complexity of human beings in form of an album. I don't even have to say it's the most progressive rock influenced album of Rush, and thanks to Neil Peart lyrics everything fits perfectly.
Has two of my absolute favorite progressive rock songs
Side one is another epic, but side two is what really makes this album. There's the very cool and thoughtful 'Circumstances' followed by the brilliant metaphor in 'The Trees,' all topped off by the ultimate Rush instrumental, 'La Villa Strangiato.' A+
Proggiest Rush album. My personal favorite. La Villa Strangiato is the best song
Just the four tracks here, firstly Cygnus X-1: Book II follows on from the final track on A Farewell To Kings, it is suitably epic. Circumstances is ok but possibly the weakest track here while The Trees is excellent and one of my faves. Finally we have the 9 minute instrumental La Villa Strangiato, not being a fan of instrumentals in general, I do have to confess that this is pretty good and well worth a listen.
"Cygnus X-1: Part 2" is another Rush epic, and one of the last. "Circumstances" is solid, "The Trees" has great lyrics, and "La Villa Strangiato" features some great guitar work by Lifeson. Another really good album in the Rush discography.
Prog Rock 4EVER! Musicianship is amazing, but I just can't connect with it.
hard to get into this one
Very good album, La Villa Strangiato is one of the best instrumentals of all time
