Rush's return to progressive hard rock continued with Roll the Bones, though there's still a bit of synth work (notably on the title track). The music flows like a well-oiled machine, and with Rush, that's an asset, particularly when the material is this good. The songs are mostly up-tempo, with the intellectually oriented themes and musical structure that Rush is famous for. Especially memorable are "Dreamline," "Face Up," "Big Wheel," and "Neurotica," but everything here is good. --Genevieve Williams

"When I was 17 or so, I was in bed, in the dark, with those puffy headphones on, listening to some crappy rock radio station. I'll never forget hearing "Dreamline" for the first time..."do do do do dee do do do dee do do do..."..it captured my imagination, and still does.
Now, in all fairness, does this stand up to "2112", "Moving Pictures", et al? Somehow, for me it does. Lyrically, as a teen, I latched onto it like a baby to a ti-...lollipop. I recognized early on that life was total crap, but that it was also a gamble. Some of us could win. I never will, but I have the perfect soundtrack. Ghost of a chance. Face up. The way the big wheel spins. Roll the bones. Songs or truths of life? Works for me."
