RUSH...Hemispheres  (1978)
Hemispheres was released 35 years ago in 1978.  It reached number 47 on the U.S. Billboard Album Charts.  I'll give it a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.  The only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is because during the track "Circumstances" Geddy Lee's vocals are almost irritating.  Other than that this record is fantastic.  The album only has 4 tracks but that's absolutely ok.  The other 3 are great listening.  The best of the 4 is "La Villia Strangiato".  Check it out
