  • I cannot believe people who claim to call themselves “Rush Fans” don’t dig this album. This brilliant album is probably the most “Tolkien-ish” or “fantasy-like” out of the whole Rush catalog (along with “Xanadu” from Kings and “By-Tor” and “Rivendell” from Fly By Night). The “Necromancer” is oustanding, classic Rush! I believe “The Fountain of Lamneth” ranks as one of the greats along with “Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres”, “2112″, “Cygnus X-1″, and “Xanadu”. Anybody with any open mind and digs prog such as early Crimson, Genesis, Yes, Tull, and Gentle Giant will LOVE this album! For me this album ranks with “Brain Salad Surgery”, “Relayer”, “Larks’ Tongues”, “A Passion Play” – on that level! P.S.- I have not yet heard the newly remastered version, but I’m sure it will not disappoint.
