Power Windows was the 11th studio album after Grace Under Pressure.Power Windows was the first Rush album to be produced by Peter Collins and the album was recorded at The Manor in England.Air Studios in Montserrant and at Sarm East Studios in London.Power Windows introduced more keyboard or synthesizers into Rush's sound."The Big Money" and "Mystic Rythms" were both made into music videos featured on MTV's rotation at the time. Power Windows lyrics focused on the manfestations of power.For example,the song "Manhattan Project" explains the origins and consquences of the U.S. military's development of the atomic bomb (nuke).Also,"Territories" comments on nationalism around the world.Like "Subdivisons" from the 9th album Signals........."Middletown Dreams" explores suburban monotony and the average person's goal to escape it.
