"Carnies" Great tune. I like that opening riff (sounds so familiar) which carries throughout the song, and the melodies are good enough to carry it along. Some terrific drumming from Neil (natch), and Alex lays down some quick but interesting moments as the track shifts across a few distinct themes. This is some more top tier Rush. "Halo Effect" A band like Rush can easily turn this type of song into a mushy mess, where the more subtle moments just come across either overly sentimental or awash in droning power ballad chords. Rush know how to deftly use textures, and balance acoustic and electric parts of a track. Alex continues to offer up some nice playing, and the arrangements on this are really tasteful. One of my favourites on this album.
