I know I've probably said this about the last couple Rush albums but I really am excited about this new album. I have to say I really do like the three songs I've heard thus far. I'm not sure what the rest of the tracks will be like, but I like this direction they've taken. It has a bit of an old school Rush vibe mixed in with a heaviness that's been lacking for a while. I know Drew will love it.

Just ordered it myself. I loved Snakes and Arrows. I think they've found a really good foil in Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with a very varied roster of artists. I think that keeps him open to whatever the fuck Rush might want to do, and the experience to craft a variety of sounds appropriate to the songs.
