  • Maybe the best song on Moving Pictures. Truly a brilliant track.
  • I'm a sucker for anthemic slow building rock ballads like this. Kind of U2 ish in that similar structure. I get goosebumps when the drums kick in a minute and a half through leading to Lifeson's guitar riff.
  • Superb lyrics, superb track!
  • Great lyrics. I've quoted them often online, usually to right wing, racist religious whackos.
  • They say there is strangeness too dangerous, in our theatres and bookstore shelves. DA-DAM-DA-DAOWWW
  • This is Groovy
  • haunting classic
  • We all hear of these things happening in our world.....Rush brings it to light and puts power behind it!! Ignorance and Prejudice And fear walk hand in hand... How true.
  • Brilliant!
  • This has to be my favourite Rush song.
