  1. "Snakes & Arrows" is several steps ahead of more recent efforts.
  2. Unfortunately, too much of Snakes and Arrows is dominated by mid-tempo, lumbering behemoths.
  3. If you're a Rush fan, add two stars; if not, subtract two.

    This albums has many great tunes. They include great hard rock songs with prog elements such as "Far Cry" and "Armor and Sword" andThis albums has many great tunes. They include great hard rock songs with prog elements such as "Far Cry" and "Armor and Sword" and magnificent instrumentals such as "The Main Monkey Business", "Malignant Narcissism", "Hope". But half of the songs are boring and they are really hard to remember (such as "Faithless", "Spindrift", etc). Instrumental lines are good as usual: guitars riffs are heavy and mean, bass is a growling monster! "Snakes & Arrows" is more hard-rocky than previous works, but it sure is a good album and I'd recommend it to people who want to get acquainted with this band. Full Review »

    The best album they have ever done with Niel Peart still playing really good and for me he is the best drummer going.
