Vapor Trails, even without synths or traditional guitar solos, has IMO a futuristic feel to it, I felt they broke new ground with the album, it was 6 years removed from the mediocre Test For Echo. it was the first hour plus album they'd released, it was kind of a "Comeback" album from Neils tragedies. I compare it 2112 in a "new phase of Rush" sense, 2112 was futuristic in theme and sound, so was Vapor Trails.

Snakes And Arrows was also an hour plus, but had a LOT of acoustic stuff in it (much like Farewell To Kings) and IMO, sounds more like A Farewell To Kings than any other Rush album (including Hemispheres with the Cygnus ties).

It makes sense that a Hemispheres esque album would follow - we already know it's gonna be a concept, Neil has already said he intends it to be the best album he's written, I know all three members of Rush think quite highly of Hemispheres...

Can't wait!
Ghost rider is a Great book and lots of V P trails stuff in there if you have not read it. Actually All Neils books are fantastic- wow he is amazingly talented.
