After the tragic events of drummer Neil Peart's life in the late '90s, many thought the hugely successful rock band Rush were no more. But when they released "Vapor Trails" in 2002, it was clear that Rush were back. And heavier than ever.
Although somewhat marred by lacklustre mixing (apparently a remixed edition is in the works), this album contains 13 extremely solid tracks which brilliantly showcase Geddy, Alex and Neil's individual talents, as well as their power as a group. Particular favourites of mine are the title track and "The Stars Look Down".
However if it's more classic Rush you're after, be sure to check out 2112
