One of the greatest Rush songs of all time, this song is a lazy walk in the park for the guitar and bass players. Totaly enjoyable in a relaxing kind of way. My vox loves to sing all Rush so if you sing, this is a great band to add.

The clearcut gem of the charts is of course the drums. I won't give too many specifics, but suffice it to say there are alot of different beats, changes of pace, good rolls, tom beats, etc. Nothing is super difficult, but the song I think earns it's difficulty rating as an overall chart with alot of tricky little fills to break your combos unless your ready for them.

In short, I'm surprised this song isn't rated gold stars and I think anyone who enjoys prog music, rush, or just a good song should get this tune.

Don't let that difficulty fool you! Edfan
When it comes to progressive music, you're almost always guaranteed that the song will be really, really fun for at least one instrument. In this case, it's bass and drums (see the other reviews for the latter)

This song, despite the 1-dot rating you see here, is so much harder and funner than it leads on. This song is absolutely littered with hammer-ons, but also throws in several sustains just to keep you from being stressed out from having to focus on so many HOPOs. Since the song itself also changes patterns frequently, it never gets repetitive and is also great for learning how to nail trickier HOPOs.

All in all, this is a must-have for any bassist. It's an absolute joy to listen and play to and I strongly suggest getting this song, as the other instruments are nowhere near boring either.

On a slightly unrelated note, I'd imagine this song being tier 5 or devil for Pro Bass if it ever gets the upgrade. Seriously, dem HOPOs.

Even though this song has a part with a wrong Pro Drum chart, but it's not butchered as, for example, Scream. The part is not that long and you will not make uncomfortable movements, as is basically a 16th roll on the snare (which should be Hi-Hat) and 1/4 touch on the Blue cymbal (open hi-hat). Buy it :p
