I have a feeling the new album is going to be an hour plus like the last two were, Geddy and the boys seem to have the mentality that if they're going to make fans wait 5 plus years between releases, to make up for it with extra tracks.
Yeah, they get shit for being diverse, when in actuality, the rap on the title track was actually pretty creative, and flowed well within the song.
My hope is the new album does go back to some of the old story telling albums of the 70's.
