This is the BMG version, with no UPC code. The original pressing, not a remastered version. Still rocks as one of their best.

(4 out of 5 stars)
"rush,s farewell to kings was the bands fifth studio album,that was released in 1977.after the amazing 2112 album rush kept the momentum going with this mostly brilliant album.although 2112 was mostly a concept album, farewell to kings combines conceptual songwriting and story telling with individual songs free from an overall concept theme.the farewell to kings period definately continued their sci-fi- metaphorical 10 minute plus mega song opuses.i wish i would have seen rush on the farewell to kings tour.for me the best tunes are;xanadu[one of the coolest rush tunes ever!!]in fact this album is worth it for xanadu alone!!however also geat are;closer to the heart,farewell to kings[title cut.]and finally the conceptual cygnus x-1 which opens the story of a space traveller that charts a course to cygnus x-1 which is a black hole in space. the space traveller gets caught up in the fearsome force of cygnus x-1...and the story is set and told on the next album;hemispheres!if your a rush fan especially 'kings period'it goes without saying this album would be a must for any serious rush fan!!!"
