"The Enemy Within"

The way the music in this song affects the listener's emotions is brilliant. It delivers the words right into the gut and mind. The first 13 seconds prepare you for the exciting riff that's about to take control of your muscles, send your feet tapping, your head bobbing, and your fists drumming on imaginary drums and cymbals. Half a minute into the song, the artfully crafted lyrics grab hold of your senses and you're swallowed into a world of apprehension and suspense. 0:54 - the song's first climax. 1:14 - a sudden shift to an ethereal, atmospheric, mystical, cloudy, spiritual place. 1:27 - back to the world of what will happen in the next instant? everything's happening so fast, what does it mean?
Etc.

That's experience to extremes.

The enemy within....it  was about the 5th rush song I had ever heard.  (I started by downloading)  

Best Lyric on the album though: You know how that rabbit feels

JUst goes to show that a sense of humor alleviates stress.

This was a rock solid album from beginning to end.  Had to go with Afterimage but I really like them all.  Haven't listened to this one in a while.  I will give it a spin on the way home from work. biggrin.gif

Reading is good for my brain too.

Distant Early Warning.  What a bassline!  I also love the echo on the guitars and the phenominal drumming.

I love the energy of Distant Early Warning and when Geddy does that "obsolete, ABSOLUTELY!!!".  And I dig Neil (Happy Birthday) on the snare.

Between The Wheels for its omnious keyboards riff. Afterimage comes next for its emotional context. The Enemy Within doesn't rock enough for me: the dancing bass line just doesn't appeal to me at all
