    Genius

    This album is a masterpiece in every since of the word. Even the songs that sound more mainstream, i.e. Freewill and the Spirit of Radio, are still amazingly composed rhythmically complex songs. Freewill alone is in at least 5 different time signatures (4/4, 5/4, 7/8, 3/4, 6/4 if memory serves me). In my opinion this album is even better than Moving Pictures, which is generally regarded as their finest. You owe it to yourself, especially if you are a musician, to buy this album immediately.

    With this album, Rush comes of age.

    For me, this is the definitive Rush album. Geddy Lee had found his best vocal range, and the band as a whole was able to keep up with new movements in Rock. The album is just so ''positive''. Many Rush fans prefer the follow-up, Moving Pictures, but cuts like ''Spirit of Radio'', ''Entre Nous'', and ''Free Will'', made this album, for me, their most memorable one. Even as the lyrics became more accessible, they remained lyrics for the thinking man.

    The best Rush has ever created.

    This is the best Rush album out (Others will disagree and say Moving Pictures). But this album, yes this is ''corny'', still made me dream. I think that this ''period'' of Rush, starting with Farewell to Kings and ending with Moving Pictures, is one of the greatest period of artistic output by any bands.

    One of Rush's best

    This album marks the band's transition from an under-appreciated art rock band into a pop phenomenon - in a way. No more sidelong progressive numbers - this one opens with the awesome double-whammy of 'The Spirit of Radio' (a big hit) and 'Freewill' (another radio favorite). Throughout this mini-masterpiece (it's only 35 minutes long, regrettably), Lifeson's guitar is strong and up-front, but the keyboards are creeping in, lending the record a somewhat new-wave feel. Listeners of classic rock radio may recognize the two tunes mentioned above, but they would do themselves a favor to listen to the album's more esoteric material, namely the dark and mystical 'Jacob's Ladder' and the epic closer, 'Natural Science', a performance that ranks in the progressive-pop hall of fame. The only negative thing I can say here is that the CD (as I mentioned above) is too short. But what's there is simply great.

    PERMANENT WAVES ROCKS!

    IF YOU ARE READING THIS TO BUY THE ALBUM, IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST THAT RUSH PUT OUT. IT WAS MY FIRST ALBUM, AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES. IT HAS ALL OF MY FAVORITE SONGS. (EXCEPT TOM SAWYER) WITH FREEWILL AND THE SPIRIT OF RADIO IT MAKES MY TOP 5 AS NUMBER 2.
