And the five years since the band’s last album, “Snakes & Arrows,” have given Rush plenty of time to create a lot of new music. “Clockwork Angels” weighs in at a formidable 66 minutes, time enough for a kitchen-sink’s worth of ideas and a weighty conceptual focus by drummer/lyricist Neil Peart about one man’s journey to realize his dreams. The album’s seven-minute opuses range from tight (“Headlong Flight”) to the messy title track, while fans of Rush’s classic, riff-driven approach and ensemble virtuosity will find aural nirvana in “The Anarchist,” “Seven Cities of Gold,” “The Wreckers” and “Wish Them Well.” – Billboard.com.
