He's got a problem with his poisons,
But you know he'll find a cure.
He's cleaning up his systems,
To keep his nature pure.
Rush nails it again with this portrait of ultra-modern man navigating modern temptation. "Digital Man" is one of Rush's best songs, blending grace, power and drive. "Signals,"
one of the band's best albums, takes on many themes of modern life. For instance, "Chemistry" cleverly presents romance as a series of emotional transmissions and
chemical reactions. "Subdivisions," a hit single from the album, points out that far from enabling the American Dream, the country's endless suburbs have bred remoteness and alienation. "The Analog Kid," a flashback to
how astonishing the world can seem to a child, has a hook so lush that it nearly sweeps you away. Geddy Lee, who had finally learned to control his voice on the previous
album ("Moving Pictures"), is in top form here. All of the tunes on Signals are notably sonorous and warm, which disappointed some fans of the "blazing-guitars and screaming
vocals" era Rush. But it all works quite well to these ears, and the top-notch songwriting helps put Signals among the top Rush albums.
