Permanent Waves is the seventh studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in January 1980 on Anthem Records. After touring to support the band's previous album Hemispheres (1978) ended, the band members took a short break before they regrouped to work on new material. The album marked a departure in the band's musical style towards tighter song structures and songs more suitable for radio airplay

Permanent Waves is the seventh studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on January 14, 1980, by Mercury Records in the United States. Its total length is 35:35. The band's lineup included vocalist, bassist, and keyboards player Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer Neil Peart. Rush's previous release Hemispheres was their most progressive album they had done. The album was the band's most popular release yet as it reached on Billboard 200 chart and on the UK albums chart. It has since gone Platinum in the . and Canada, as well as Gold in the . The strengths of this album are the progressive, but radio friendly style, the great musicianship, the excellent lyrics and themes, and the abundance of terrific catchy Rush hits. There are no weaknesses on Permanent Waves. Here are my thoughts on each track. 1. "The Spirit of Radio" 4:59 (5/5).

Permanent Waves earned Rush new hoards of fans, even converting some of their harshest critics. But Lifeson himself wasn't engaged by the album at first. I went through a period where I couldn't listen to the album," the guitarist told Music Express. I was really disappointed. It didn't seem like there was anything new or fresh about the album. 'Jacob's Ladder' seemed to be a typical Rush song, a rehash of something we'd done in the past. But then I started hearing the album on the radio, and I thought 'Wow, this sounds great. Then I realized I had over-reacted to the album and that I had been overly-critical of small insignificant things that hadn't affected the overall effect of the record. Even in the face of growing commercial success, Lee's attitude was even-keeled. I think we achieved success a long time ago," the bassist told Circus.
