3 stars Snakes and arrows is a fairly decent to great recent Rush albums, one of the many released over the years by the band. This one is from 2007 and again I like quite much. I'm a Rush fan for more then 20 years and this one is no less enjoyble from me as other albums from their catalogue. Maybe is sounds to me little more melodic then previous 2-3 albums, but is still a Rush album from all sides. This is not a fantastic record but definetly is not bad for sure either, is a typical Rush album, nothing less nothing more. The lengthy song structures are no more present like in the early days, but the prog textures are present on each piece for sure. The perfect example are the instrumental tracks like the top notch The Main Monkey Business , awesome breaks and tempo changes, quite fun to listen and very well as always produces and played. To me Rush doesn't have bad albums, not a single one is bad, some are more intresting and catchy then others that is the main thing. Good release from the masters, not really excellent but pleasent enough for my ears. 3.5 stars, another fine art work on the album sleeve..
