Yeah, uh, well...it has its moments but it also has a lot of warbling  Geddy Lee Chorale Experience...of which I'm not a fan.

Nick R. pushed Geddy to sing way too high a lot on the last 2 albums. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn't.

Warbling   :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tone deaf has to do with someone being unable to perceive pitch, atonal means not written in any key or mode.

So... :wtf: I dunno.  Still results in discordant crap.

Some combination of those words can also be applied to Good News First and We Hold On...discordant, atonal, tone-deaf, but most especially crap.

Except for the instrumentals, which are still nowhere near YYZ and La Villa, and Far Cry, S&A is filled with tedious demonizing set to dull, dreary music.

With the exception of those three songs (Good News First, We Hold On, Bravest Face-the trifecta of fillers), I actually like S&A.  It reminds of good times...so I guess you could say it's a nostalgia album for me, which is funny in that it's only 10 years old.
