I dig the heaviness and the central riff, but I'm not sure the chorus is quite strong enough to elevate this one to "instant classic" status. Nonetheless, if this is indicative of the overall direction they're taking on the new album it could be one of their best in years. I make no secret of my disdain for Snakes and Ladders: I don't like the "touchy feely" Rush, I like my Rush with balls and a backbone. "Headlong Flight" has both. Bottoms up.
