We gave it a B+

They’re known for making metal arty. But the real lure of this Canadian band’s 17th studio work isn’t its complexity but its catchiness. Alex Lifeson’s guitar riffs, in songs like ”One Little Victory” or ”Ghost Rider,” have the cocky appeal of the Who’s power chords, and the fleet virtuosity of Genesis’ early epics. Prog-rock never sounded so listener friendly.
