Rush is a progressive rock band which formed in Willowdale, Ontario, Canada in 1968. The band formed with the lineup of Geddy Lee (vocals, bass, keyboards), Alex Lifeson (guitar) and John Rutsey (drums). Rutsey was replaced by Neil Peart in 1974, shortly after the release of their first album, and three weeks before their first American tour.

Rush - 2112

"2112" is the fourth studio album from hard rock/progressive rock band Rush. Rush's previous album, "Caress of Steel", was released to much negative reception. Because of this, Rush's record label had wanted them to start making more radio-friendly two-three-minute songs instead of the lengthy epics that the band had started to create. So, instead of bowing to the record company, Rush decided to create a 20-minute long suite as one gigantic middle finger. This would end up being Rush's real major breakthrough.

What can be said about this masterpiece that hasn't already been said? Adding some space-rock sounds to the mix fits in well with the lyrics of the suite. From the sounds of space from 'Overture' to the aggressive guitar and Lee's screams on 'The Temples of Syrinx', The calm melodies of 'Discovery' to the guitar solo of 'Presentation', and The dramatic heaviness of 'Oracle: The Dream' to the suspense of 'Soliloquy' when Lee screams his last in the suite, shows how varied this suite is. The grand finale when a robotic voice repeats 'We Have Assumed Control' signals that Rush has indeed assumed control.

As far as side two goes, the remaining five songs are all much shorter all being under four minutes long. The first two of these, 'A Passages to Bangkok' and 'The Twilight Zone', both have a dark and brooding sound to them fitting perfectly in with the side one suite. The latter I find to be a really underrated song, as it's such a chilling ominous track. The guitar solo at the end is also pretty foreboding. The final song, 'Something for Nothing' is another favorite and is another great dark heavy rocker with some of Rush's best lyrics.

My only issue with the album is how out of place the song 'Lessons' is. I used to hate the ballad 'Tears', but I've since grown to enjoy it and I think it fits in with the rest of the album. 'Lessons' on the other hand, despite being a great rocking song, feels really out of place with the spacey/dark sound of the rest of the album. I think it would've fit better on an album like "Fly By Night", as it's in the vein of the rocking songs on that release.

Overall, despite having a song that interrupts the mood, "2112" is still a killer album and an essential album for any hard rock/metal collection if only for the grandiose title track. While "Caress of Steel" and "2112" showed Rush move into an epic direction, the following albums see that fully take form. Hope you found this review helpful.

RUSH Caress of Steel

Rush - Caress of Steel

"Caress of Steel" is the third studio album from hard rock/progressive rock band Rush. With the addition of drummer Neil Peart on the previous album, Rush's music and lyrics had gotten more complex while still primarily playing bluesy hard rock. "Caress of Steel" takes the complexity to the next level, featuring not one, but two epic tracks exceeding the 10-minute mark. This album shows Rush become the progressive heavy/hard rock behemoth they're known as today.

"Caress of Steel" expands upon what Rush was experimenting with on "Fly By Night", as there are full epic song-structures as heard in the last two songs, folk-rock influences in 'Lakeside Park', while also getting heavier. The opening two songs 'Bastille Day' and 'I Think I'm Going Bald' are pure killer heavy rocking songs, especially the former which opens the album with heavy speeding riffing. 'Lakeside Park' continues with some of the folk sounds from the previous album, but it sounds much more focused then the experimentation with it on its predecessors. It's actually one of my favorites from the album, and it's nice and calm yet rocking at the same time.

The first of the two epics and my favorite song on the album, 'The Necromancer', is actually part two of the story from the song 'By-Tor and the Snow Dog' from the last album. 'The Necromancer' and the following epic really set the standard for future Rush epics, having different parts all having their own distinct sound. The beginning opens up with spoken word and later gets a bluesy Pink Floyd-vibe to it.The second part shows Rush at perhaps one of their heaviest moments. There's some killer Sabbath-esque sludgy guitar, and Lee's menacing vocals and screams sure makes this part sound like proto-doom metal. What better contrast to sludgy guitar can you have but a great blistering guitar solo. The song ends on an uplifting note with some joyful folk guitar and a solo.

The final song on the album is the 20-minute behemoth, 'The Fountain of Lamneth'. This is an six-segment epic full of variation, going from heavy riffing, menacing melodies, beautiful classical/acoustic guitar work, and more. One of the most amazing parts of the song is part two, 'Didacts and Narpets', which is basically a drum solo with chaotic drum rolls and guitar blasts.

Overall, "Caress of Steel" is a perfect combination of different sounds, and really shows Rush doing all that they do best; heavy blistering rock and complex hard rock epics. A true underrated classic, and one of my favorite Rush albums. "Caress of Steel" is not only a fantastic album, but it led to many future Rush albums with it's approach to balancing out hard rock and heavy progressive epic songs. This is a great starting point for someone getting into 70's Rush, and also essential listening for any fans of classic hard rock. Hope you found this review helpful.

RUSH Fly by Night

Rush - Fly By Night

"Fly By Night" is the second studio album from hard rock/progressive rock band Rush. "Fly By Night" marks the first appearance of drum virtuoso Neil Peart in the band due to the departure of original drummer John Rutsey, who had left because of his diabetes and dislike of touring. Listening to the album, you can already hear a change in the music and lyrics.

The music is still rooted in heavy blues rock like the debut, but there is quite a bit more variation. An influence of folk music is heard in songs like 'Making Memories' and 'Rivendell', the former being a really nice catchy folk-rock tune. The latter, however, is an incredibly boring ballad that really goes nowhere. It actually makes me yearn for the filler of the debut. On a more positive note, heard here is Rush's first epic, 'By-Tor and the Snow Dog', which has a great deal of experimentation with guitar distortion and some really sweet guitar and drum soloing. Mix that with the catchy bassline and it's a winner. Towards the end of the song, there is some dark ambiance that fits in well after the middle jam.

While some of the experimentation works well, My favorite is easily the opening 'Anthem' which is a giant slab of heavy rock/metal that just hits you in the face. Lifeson's riffs on this song are absolutely killer, combined with Lee's raw vocal performance and Peart's chaotic drumming just makes this a real treat to listen to. Speaking of guitar, Lifeson cranks out catchy riff after riff in the first three songs on the album. Another one of my favorites is actually the previously mentioned 'Making Memories', it's simply just such a feel-good song for if you're feeling down.

Along with drums, Peart also took over many of the lyric-writing being responsible for such fascinating and interesting lyrics that would be characterized in following albums. The lyricism has almost entirely changed, with fantasy lyrics in songs like 'Rivendell' and 'By-Tor and the Snow Dog' and more philosophical lyrics as heard in 'Anthem' and 'Beneath, Between, and Behind'.

Overall, while there are some awesome songs and good ideas on the album, I don't feel like it's as strong as the debut. It has some filler, and besides 'Anthem', I don't find it to be as addicting as the debut. Despite the filler and certainly feeling like a transitional album, it's still a great album and I recommend it to any fans of 70's hard rock. Also, that album cover is awesome.

Rush - Rush

"Rush" is the self-titled debut studio album by hard rock/progressive rock band Rush. Today Rush is practically a household name for most fans of rock music, as they are extremely well-known for ground-breaking albums like "2112" and "Moving Pictures", but they didn't start out making complex heavy rock/metal epics and coming up with fascinating and philosophical lyrical themes.

The music heard here is primarily heavy blues rock not dissimilar to bands like Led Zeppelin and Foghat. The lyrics are also what you would expect from a release like this, being about love and daily life as heard in songs like 'Working Man'. There is some variation with songs like 'Here Again', 'Working Man' and 'What You're Doing', while all three are still bluesy the former takes a much slower pace with some dark power chords. 'What You're Doing', which is one of my favorite songs on the album, has some really great heavy riffing. 'Working Man' is another favorite and a crushingly heavy song (For 1974), and certainly what I'd call an early heavy metal song.

Alex Lifeson already conducts some really sweet riffs and solos, just take a listen to almost any song on the album and try not to have the riffs get stuck in your head. Listening to the dark heavy riffing of 'Working Man' makes it easy to see why it's the most popular from the album. Geddy Lee's vocals are great too, being able to sound aggressive at times despite having a higher-pitched vocal range. One big difference from this album and the following releases, is that this album features original drummer John Rutsey instead of the famous Neil Peart. Peart is a fantastic drummer, but Rutsey really deserves some attention too. While not as complex as Peart, he gives some really impressive drum work on the album, especially on 'Before and After', which is probably my favorite from the album.

Overall, this is one great debut album. While it has some weak moments, ('In the Mood' sounds like a rejected Aerosmith song), most of the songs on this debut are not only fantastic heavy blues/rock songs but also a great start for one of the most innovative bands in hard rock. If you're a fan of early heavy blues rock, this makes for one hell of a listen. Hope you found this review helpful.

RUSH Clockwork Angels

Rush-Clockwork Angels

It honestly surprises me that Rush hadn't released a concept album until this point. Rush's first concept album 'Clockwork Angels' was well received by critics, and it is Rush's highest rated post-Moving Pictures release here on the MMA. If you are interested in the concept of this album, Neil Peart wrote a book about the concept of this album and I recommended it if you enjoy this album.

The music and lyrics on this album really tell a story. The concept, even though explained in a book, is best heard from the music itself. All the songs connect, yet it's not an album you have to listen to all the way through. All the songs stand well on their own, concept or not. There are songs about virtually all parts of life, 'Caravan', the hard rocking opener seems to be about curiosity. 'BU2B' is about believing and understanding, 'Halo Effect' is about having romantic interest, and there are many other themes the song have and there are just too many to all describe.

The music is very unique, and has wide range of eclectic styles. The songs 'Caravan' and 'Headlong Flight' are heavy rockers, with Lee performing some of his best vocal and bass work. The title track brings back Rush's progressive rock of old, and songs like 'BU2B2' and 'The Garden' are beautiful classical music-influenced pieces. Not without some darkness, 'Clockwork Angels' has a couple menacing songs like 'The Anarchist' and 'The Wreckers' both having dark riffing and a dark atmosphere. Speaking of 'The Wreckers', this song has a unique dark classical-infused bridge with the lyrics changing drastically from the start of the song.

Overall, I think this is essential to any Rush fan's collection. Not only is it Rush's first concept album, but it has such a wide variety of styles and fuses them together in a way that Rush hasn't done in quite a while. This album shows that Rush is still going strong after forty years of rocking.

Hope you found this review helpful.

RUSH Replay X 3

Movie · 2006 · Hard Rock

AtomicCrimsonRush
"Replay X3" is a terrific box set of the 3 earlier Rush VHS concerts and it has been mastered to provide great picture though not all widescreen unfortunately. The sound is excellent without any noteable dropout unlike the VHS antiques. The packaging is excellent, booklets included and all original art prints on the seperate covers. There is also a bonus CD of Grace Under Pressure which is worthwhile.

DVD 1 is Exit...Stage Left, a 1 hour concert from the early years or Rushtory when they had long hair, and features a strong setlist with the likes of Limelight, Tom Sawyer, and a rare appearance of the brilliant Xanadu. The usual suspects are here such as the wonderful Red Barchetta and quintessential Freewill along with lighters in the air stalwart crowd pleaser Closer To The Heart. It is always great to see them having fun with the instrumental YYZ and a real treat is to hear the medley at the end with By-Tor And The Snow Dog, In The End, In The Mood and 2112 edited together masterfully. The VHS or DVD delivers what it promises, Rush in their hey day with great quality sound and editing. The band look young of course and jump around a lot more and there were no signs of chicken rotisseries or clothes dryers back then, but a heck of a lot of lighting and laser effects more than makes up for it. The concert also comes with a lot of interview footage and voice overs between songs, and some footage of the band backstage while the songs play and that is a treat compared to the usual straight concert footage. Too short but quite sweet. A real blast from the past that will please Rushaholics.

DVD 2 is Grace Under Pressure, another of the earlier concert performances of Rush running for about an hour with a lot of songs from "Grace Under Pressure" of course and it is nice to hear these. It begins with a glorious opening with The Spirit Of Radio, and a noticeable glowing effect on the band especially the white shirts, as if Vaseline had been rubbed on the lens. This is the 80s and this effect was prominent on film clips of artists such as Nik Kershaw and Dire Straits or Duran Duran. It looks kind of weird on Rush as they were never pretty video boys. Unfortunately the fuzzy effect is prevalent throughout the recording, and it kind of annoys me, especially the way the bright lights phase over constantly. Lifeson wears a white sports jacket looking like the mad scientist of metal, Peart has a white T and red cap that he loses later, and Lee wears grey suit jacket and white T. The hair dos are 80s personified; Peart has a rat tail, Lee has a mullet and Lifeson has a Flock of Seagulls quiff. Oh well, it is what it is. The music is brilliant.

The Enemy Within is rarely heard live but sparked my memory and it's a great song. The Weapon is always fantastic, one of my favourites, and it begins with a Dracula character on screen telling people to put on their 3D glasses. Witch Hunt begins with a screening of a bunch of cultists burning books with torches. It is a great song from "Moving Pictures" recently heard in the Time Machine concerts. Lee's vocals are excellent throughout and the guitars are incredible. New World Man is another one rarely heard live recently and it is OK though not one of the better tracks from "Signals". Synths are heard here though no one seems to be playing them, so I suspect some recorded music was used. It was the age of the video clip and a clip is shown of some animation and a boy looking up to see a huge airship in the sky. Distant Early Warning follows and it is a great song from GUP, that has become a concert favourite. The clip shows the boy riding a missile and the laser light show follows.

Red Sector A is an awesome song and I loved hearing it on this DVD again, with one of the strongest melodies of the Rush catalogue. The laser show looks great here. The lyrics by Lee are terrific and when Lee sings "smoking gun" a massive explosion goes off causing the crowd to roar. The lyrics are actually based on family experience and is a homage to his mother and father that survived the holocaust. Though Lee re wrote the lyrics to have a broader perspective that it may apply to any holocaust like situation such as Rwanda. Closer To The Heart is always a crowd pleaser and the crowd know it well enough to drown out some of Lee's vocals. There were no mobile phones back then but plenty of lighters go up in the air.

The obligatory medley is here with a terrific merging of some classics, YYZ, Temples Of Syrinx, and Tom Sawyer. During YYZ the crowd are obsessed with air drumming throughout. Tom Sawyer features the Moving Pictures animation on the screen. It is nice to hear Lee be able to reach those high notes too in the chorus.

Vital Signs is one I have not seen live on other concerts till the "Moving Pictures" live concerts of recent years. When Lee takes off his jacket his white T glows like the rest of the band's halos. It is a weird effect really and perhaps the worse part of the DVD. It ends with Finding My Way and In The Mood, from the earliest album. it is a great crowd participation song with the crowd visible throughout, a guy even lights up a pipe at one stage. Overall, this is a great snippet of songs from the Rush 80s years, worth checking out for certain even if for nostalgia if nothing else.

DVD 3 is A Show Of Hands, a 90 minutes concert experience and as such way better than the previous DVDs available, namely "Exit Stage Left" and "Grace Under Pressure". It is excellent also due to the use of animations on the big screen and the overall setlist. The songs are from "Hold Your Fire" mostly and I believe they are better heard live than on that album so that is a drawcard of this particular DVD. It also has a very solid quality sound throughout and the band look great and have heaps of fun. From "Hold Your Fire" the songs appear, Mission, Prime Mover, Force Ten, and Turn The Page so there is a lot from their latest at the time.

Closer To The Heart is always present of course along with quintessential Tom Sawyer, and The Spirit of Radio. I always love to hear the magnificent Red Sector A and hard rocking Force Ten, and it was great to see them play Mission, another one rarely heard live on these DVDs.

Marathon, Territories and The Big Money from "Power Windows" are good rockers for the crowd to get into. The drum solo by Peart is terrific, with his vibes section and patented cymbal jazz splashes along with some incredible triplet work though his drums are still stationary in this era, and not as many.

The concert ends with a brilliant medley 2112, The Temples Of Syrinx, La Villa Strangiato and In The Mood. Overall a strong concert, one of the best live documents of the band and worth getting hold of above the rest.

The Grace Under Pressure Bonus CD, is a previously unreleased audio from the newly remastered Grace Under Pressure concert soundtrack and it is a fantastic Rush sound.

"Replay x3" is definitely worth getting as it houses 3 very good concerts of the early years and these are only available now with this set released in 2006.

This 3 CD package is a great concert experience that I will return to often. Everything works - from the excellent sound quality to the crystal clear picture. The stage itself is massive and there are incredible lighting effects, lasers and fire effects. The 3 split screens at times show each band member, and sometimes a visual effect to enhance the track being played. There are weird Rush-ian gimmicks, namely the 3 huge ovens full of rotating chickens that glow ominous red throughout the night. There is no reference to these except Lee says at the end of CD1 that they are no longer spring chickens so they need to take a break. At one point a weird chef appears to turn the chickens over. Similar in fact to the washing machines with rotating clothes in the 'Live in Rio' show. Other subtler things are on stage such as flanks of flowers around microphones, plastic dinosaurs around Lifeson's stacks and the piece de resistance is the miniature Stonehenge rock on Lee's keyboards - a nod in Spinal Tap's direction for sure. We see crowd shots and Lee takes home movies of them screaming Hello Canada - in fact we see many versions of him doing this from other shows. Peart is featured with a sizzling drum solo that is well above what normally occurs in solos. He uses gamelon style blocks and sound effect drums to enhance the solo and his kit rotates to add depth. I love when the jazz band kicks in and he plays full blown jazz metrical patterns - there is a standing ovation after this.

There are no lengthy lead solo sections where Lifeson plays by himself but there is a nice acoustic piece following the drum solo. Lifeson effortlessly plays all the songs with precision and finesse. Surely one of the greatest guitarists in the world.

Lee's vocals are excellent and as clear as ever. His bass pounds on every track. I noted its all mostly hard rock on this live show. The band play old favourites that every Rush fan adores such as 'Spirit of Radio' and 'Tom Sawyer' but they focus on 'Snakes and Arrows' album, virtually playing every song. This could have been problematic but I find these live versions even better than the studio versions. I was never a huge fan of S&A but this live concert really brings something special to these tracks. I like the film clips that break up the songs such as South Park's Cartman singing Tom Sawyer and the weird clips of babies in prams and a game of snakes and ladders.

The bonus features are fun, such as watching the clips without the band shots and the making of the clips which show Rush at their kookiest. Some of the extra live tracks are great too so overall this is a must see for any Rush fan. I recommend this as well as 'Live IN Rio' which are completely different experiences. This is not as good as 'Rio' due to the set list, but it is still a fantastic DVD package.

I happen to believe and think that Rush was the first significant blend of Prog and Metal but this baffles me. Why are the first three albums listed as Proto - Metal and not the first 6( Rush through Hemispheres instead? They are all at the very least Proto - Metal

Why is Clockwork angels non metal Its way heavier than Snakes and Arrows! Listen to The Anarchist and The Carnies and Headlong Flight. That rocks big time.

Really, all Rush albums should be in metal category - metal bands owe a lot to their style no matter how commercial it became.

Why are Counterparts - Snakes and Arrows listed as "non metal"? Those albums rock harder than Permanent Waves/Moving Pictures.
