Agreed, I love Rush and it's the same thing, "We're going back to our roots and this will be much better than the last one" or something like that every time they make a new album. I even found an old magazine interview with Rush from 1994 where they said that and that was almost 20 years ago, although I will say they finally got it right with Clockwork Angels. If Dave can make another Rust in Peace I'm all for it but I definitely won't be buying this blind.
