Hemispheres is a triumphant moment for the band, and a great final outing to their experimental period.

The first track off the album "Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres" is a continuation of the first Cygnus X-1 Book, the voyage, and overall in its composition, is perfect. The structure is complex, yet clear, the instrumentation is on point and Geddy Lee's vocal performance is Great. Alex Lifeson also shines as a guitar player, from his riffs and solos, everything is just spectacular. ... read more

Saying that "On this record, Rush goes full experimental" for Hemispheres is like saying the sky is blue. The track lengths can tell you that. But what it doesn't tell you is how absolutely crunchy, precise and mind-boggingly stupifying the tracks are.

Favorite Jams: Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres, La Villa Strangiato (An Exercise in Self-Indulgence), The Trees

Lest Favorite: Circumstances
