Niel Peart is a genius lyricist. Just saw rush in Dallas for the Clock Work Angels tour and it rocked! Their music inspired me through the 70's and I will always be grateful to them.

Nice deep album cut for us Rush geeks as opposed to Tom Sawyer and Limelight for the masses. Well done, Pandora.

I have not missed a Rush Concert since back in the 80's . They never cease to amaze me. The first album I ever purchased was 2112. I used to hear it side to side with the headphones on. Their last effort was awesome . They are the greatest 3 piece band ever. As for being underrated. I honestly dont think they worry about it. They chose their path, are playing the music they want to ,have toured the world time and time again. They have had a career spanning 30 Plus years. This is something some o

I agree Walter, Rush is one of the most underrated bands of all time...which is a real tragedy. They are simply amazing and this song goes to show just how talented they are! Love Cygnus X-1!!!!

The lyrics are totally not abstract. "Prominent Bass Riffs" should be up there, just for the bass intro.

Rush is the most underrated bands in the world. They deserve better.
