Its years since I first heard this album nearly 30years ago. It sounds really fresh and hasent aged at all. La Villa Strangtiato is a masterpiece
The peak of the Rush prog era
Probably the strongest Rush album of the '70s, Hemispheres is the zenith of their Prog Rock period, with many sci-fi and fantasy references. The entire first side is dominated by the mammoth Cygnus X1 Book II, which follows up book one from A Farewell to King's. It shows Geddy Lee's singing off at its highest level (and pitch!). Circumstances is a hard rock song about Neil Peart's time in England, while The Trees is a fable about oaks and maples competing in a forest. The final track is the showcase of the band's instrumental virtuosity, based on a dream Alex Lifeson had. Overall, it is the natural successor to their previous album "A Farewell to Kings" continuing many of the themes started by it. It has a very prog feel with plenty of unusual time signatures and is considered by many to be a true concept album. It is well worth a listen and certainly worth more than the £5 it usually costs today.Read full review
