I have never been keen on Rush but this song is not too bad.

The song fact actually has a lot to do with the song, Ethan.

Dear John (from Asheville, NY) These people on the boards are the people that only understand the Rock and the Music, but not the inspiration, like Tolkien and old Fables and Myths...

Man does this song get crap on many of the Rush boards. I've never heard anything offensive in it. It's a lilting melody with an emotional vocal. I've heard a lot worse from Rush.
