Power Windows contains eight tracks, each one very different in its own way, spanning over a duration of almost fifty minutes with no song being under the five minute mark and two over six minutes (Marathon, Territories). These lengths are not like their older records like 2112 and have a tolerable length and most have continuous changing riffs and tempos, making it seem almost like a couple of songs into one, although some may feel some do go on for too long. Power Windows's recording is as good as it gets, as every instrument is clearly audible with the overdubbing working well. However, some may find the record sounding too polished or clean sounding. As previously mentioned, the synthesizers are dominant here, and no song goes without it, but the famous trio still gives solid performances in their respective instruments. It is a perfect example of them in the prime of their 1980's daze. It may not be the most accessible Rush album or may not be the best to get if you are a new comer to the band, but with time, this album will grow on you. The lyrics are intelligent, the music is powerful, and the songs are well put together, even if a little polished. It may seem a bit outdated as it has that classic eighties feel to it, which is a good or bad thing, depending on what you like. If you don't let the heavy use of the synths and the whole 80's deal get in the way, it is actually an enjoyable album. It blends a nice mix of hard rock, progressive rock, pop, techno and other types as well making for great variety, as well as the showing the different styles of the band. Although it may not be the best Rush has to offer, Power Windows is a solid album, and one that is often underrated in the Rush catalogue.
