Rush-Presto

Once Rush felt they had completed their era of synth-led rock on the weak effort 'Hold Your Fire', Rush decided to go to a more alternative rock direction. Enter 'Presto', as in 'Presto', we made a good album after our worst!

1: Show Don't Tell starts the album off rocking, with Lifeson back in action with awesome heavy guitar riffs. After a softer moment with nice acoustics and Lee's lower vocals, the song starts rocking again. The synth can still be heard but it takes the spot as an enhancer rather then leading. The bridge has some great bass and a classic Lifeson guitar solo. Rush is certainly back in action. (10/10)

2: Chain Lightning---Beginning with synth that leads into great guitar and strong bass, This song flows from mellow to heavy a lot. Lifeson conducts an awesome solo while Peart attacks the drums at the bridge. Not much else to say. (7/10)

3: The Pass begins with great bass by Lee. During the chorus Lifeson gives us some great guitar while Lee gives a great vocal performance. After a ambient sounding bridge with a guitar solo, the chorus comes back. Great for a softer song. (8/10)

4: War Paint---starting off with great guitar, this song has more synth then the previous. The song has very inspirational lyrics about not being vain and the lyric 'The mirror always lies' proves that. The song builds up during the bridge, with a kick-ass solo by Lifeson. The song fades out during the last chorus. (8/10)

5: Scars is easily my favorite song from this album, with it's ambient sound. It begins with Lee giving us amazing bass work and Peart's drumming complimenting it perfectly. All the instruments give it a dark moody atmosphere, which I love. The guitar comes in at the perfect moments during the chorus. Instead of a guitar solo at the bridge we get a drum solo. The bass is really what stands out the most in this song, with the bass ending the song. (10/10)

6: Presto is what I guess you could call a power ballad, starting out very slowly with nice acoustics. Once a great solo comes in half-way through it gets a little faster. An okay song, A little too pop-like and I just think it drags on for a little too long for what it is though. (3/10)

7: Superconductor---Beginning with heavy guitar, Superconductor is a rocker. The chorus is one of Rush's most heavy moments in quite a while. The lyrics are among my favorites on the album, being about commercialism and capitalism. The guitar gets faster and complimented by synth at the end. Probably my 2nd favorite on the album. (10/10)

8: Anagram is a pretty bland song, the guitar is good but it doesn't really go anywhere. There isn't even a guitar solo. The weakest on the album. (1/10)

9: Red Tide begins with great piano work before the guitar comes in. A softer song at first, but it gets faster. The chorus is really catchy and once the bridge comes in the song gets faster. Another great song. (8/10)

10: Hand Over Fist starts out with softer yet catchy guitar. The guitar soon picks up and the chorus comes in. Lifeson makes a great solo, and the chorus comes back in. A great song, but not much else to say. (7/10)

11: Available Light opens up with piano combined with some very powerful drums by Peart. The guitar comes in and picks the song up for the chorus. The piano enters again soon however. Lifeson gives a great guitar solo matching the mood of the song. The only thing that annoys me is when Lee squeals at the end of the choruses. Still a great album closer. (8/10)

Overall, Presto isn't a perfect comeback or anything, but I enjoy it more then the other 80's Rush albums other then 'Pictures'. Presto ushered Rush into yet another era of their musical career that would have their strong and weak moments,this happens to be a strong moment. An excellent addition to any rock collection.

Hope you found this review helpful.

RUSH Hold Your Fire

Rush-Hold Your Fire

After the good but sometimes poppy 'Power Windows', Rush must have thought it was a good idea to continue down that path and fully embrace the 80's sound that they had created. Lifeson's presence was already somewhat low on the last album, but this album makes his work on 'Windows' seem prominent.

The main problem with 'Hold Your Fire' for me is that other then a song here and there, all the songs sound the same. Unlike all previous Rush albums which always seemed to have a nice variety, 'Fire' just lacks unique composition that was always so great about Rush.

1. Force Ten. The album starts out promising enough with the best track on the album 'Force Ten'; Rush seems to be pretty good at making great opening songs. The choir at the beginning and Peart's driving drum beats really make this the most enjoyable. Lee's bass is really catchy and Lifeson is actually able to be heard well here. There is also a certain atmosphere in this song that fits well. The short bridge is nice too. The only 5 star song on this album for me. (10/10)

Other then 'Force Ten' there isn't much else to say, 'Turn the Page' is an enjoyable song and has some nice bass. 'Open Secrets' and 'Lock and Key' are okay. 'Tai Shan' isn't a song I particularly like, but it is different and unique. Other then that, there isn't really much else to say. All the rest of the songs have the same synth-led, guitar-lacking sound. Peart's lyrics are still strong, but they are not complimented very well by the music.

If you happen to enjoy this album, that's great! It just isn't my thing, but thankfully Rush would make a great comeback two years later. Unless you are a fan of 80's Rush, I wouldn't recommend this album.

Hope you found this review helpful.

Rush-Power Windows

Rush was clearly getting lost in the 80's sound at this point, but following it pretty well by maintaining hints of their old sound here and there. In Power Windows, however, some of that is lost.

1. The Big Money begins with a guitar slash and synth that just blares in your ears. The bass is really strong in this song, but the guitar is heard much less then the other instruments. As with most of Rush's 80's songs, the bridge is the most interesting part with a guitar solo and some ambiance. The synth gets annoying sometimes, but still a nice catchy song with strong lyrics. (7/10)

2. Grand Designs starts off with the synth leading. The guitar work is ok on this song, but other then a nice guitar solo there isn't really much to say about this song. The synth leads and just makes it a little too poppy for me. (2/10)

3. Manhattan Project starts out with some drum rolls by Peart. The slow synth led beginning actually fits the song well. The lyrics are awesome as well, being about the consequences of the development of the atomic bomb. When the chorus enters the song gets a somewhat dark mood with great guitar. The bridge with violin is awesome and fits the mood perfectly. (10/10)

4. Marathon starts out promising enough with great drums and guitar. Marathon is a pretty good song for what it is. I don't like the chorus, but the rest of the song is ok. (5/10)

5. Territories. Beginning with catchy drums and bass, the song quickly gets heavy in the guitar (At least as heavy as it could get with this era of Rush). The song has nice lyrics being about nationalism and some of the snobbery. Lifeson really conducts great riffs at the bridge. The song is really catchy, not much else to say though. (8/10)

6. Middletown Dreams. Starting out very slow, Peart does give great drum work here. Once the song picks up, the guitar enters but the synth quickly gets annoying. For me it shares the same problem that 'GD' has. (2/10)

7. Emotion Detector enters with interesting instrumentation, but quickly gets way too poppy for me. Again, too poppy for me. (1/10)

8. Mystic Rhythms begins with Peart keeping a great beat on the drums and an ominous mood is set. The synth again actually helps the song, the dark keyboard played combined with the machine-like drums and Lee's strong vocals. This song just always sends chills down my spine. The great bass in the bridge is complimented by Peart's great drumming. A very beautiful song. My favorite from the album. (10/10)

Overall, Power Windows is weaker then Rush's previous two albums. It gets a little too poppy sometimes, and with only a few standout tracks it's not essential by any means. If you do like 80's Rush it is a great addition. Unfortunately, Rush's next release would be their weakest to date.

RUSH Grace Under Pressure

Rush-Grace Under Pressure

I like to look at 'Grace Under Pressure' as the album in the middle of the early synth releases and the synth-led releases. 'Pressure' sounds very different from 'Signals' in my opinion, but it doesn't sound similar to 'Power Windows' either. It is definitely unique.

1. Distant Early Warning. An old favorite of mine, this song starts the album with a blast of synth. The synth continues while Lee plays some nice bass. The keyboard blasts during the guitar certainly sound dated, but they still fit the song. The chorus is fast and catchy, and surprisingly Lifeson is able to get out a classic kick-ass solo, which is a pleasant surprise. One of the more popular songs from the album. (8/10)

2. Afterimage. Afterimage begins with fast guitar riffs, and then the synth quickly comes in. Once the bridge comes in, it begins to sound kind of experimental with some ambiance and great guitar. This is also probably one of Rush's darkest songs before 'Vapor Trails' being about the loss of a loved one. Not one of my favorites, but it is a good song. (7/10)

3. Red Sector A. Beginning with some drums sounding like they came from 'Signals' with their steady beat, Lee gives great vocals. The synth surprisingly compliments the guitar and vocals and sounds really good. After a slow bridge the chorus comes back. Another song with very dark lyrics and another great song from the album. (7/10)

4. The Enemy Within. Opening up with riffs reminding me of 'Vital Signs', its dark mood fits the name well. Peart gives a really catchy drum performance here. the occasional synth -drum parts are nice too. This dark piece is an excellent part I of 'Fear' which also includes 'Witch Hunt' from 'Pictures', 'The Weapon' from 'Signals' and 'Freeze' from 'Vapor Trails'. My 2nd favorite from this album. (10/10)

5. The Body Electric. Starting out with some nice bass and catchy drums, 'The Body Electric' immediately switches to great guitar riffs. It has really catchy lyrics during the chorus, and the synth helps the song. A catchy bridge with an awesome solo by Lifeson comes in before the chorus starts up again. Great fast guitar ends the song. Easily my favorite from this album. (10/10)

6. Kid Gloves begins with really annoying guitar that sounds really dated. Other then a okay guitar solo at the bridge, there isn't really much else to say about this song except that it certainly sounds 80's and is really annoying. A weak song for me. (1/10)

7. Red Lenses starts out with lyrics that don't make any sense and somewhat annoying bass. It has a somewhat jazzy feel to it, which just gets really annoying after awhile. It does have a nice bridge with an experimental sound. Again, the lyrics don't make any sense unless it's about not seeing things in black and white, but the music still gets annoying for me. Not as bad as Kid Gloves for me though. (2/10)

8. Between the Wheels. The finale begins with awesome guitar chords by Lifeson complimented by nice synth blasts. This song just has really kick-ass riffs, and the drums are amazing as well. A great finale. (8/10)

Grace Under Pressure isn't as good as 'Signals' in my opinion, but you can't judge it based on that because this is a unique album. Has some great songs but has a couple of weak ones too. Again, not metal, but still a good album.

Hope you found this review helpful.

Rush-Signals

By 'Moving Pictures', it was clear that the synth was becoming a key instrument in Rush's new sound. This is also the first Rush album since their debut that has no epics included, cutting the songs shorter yet maintaining their inspirational lyrics.

1. Subdivisions. The most popular song starts off the album, where you can already hear the synth leading. Peart attacks the drum set and once the chorus comes in there is a somewhat dark tone. At 2:20 the synth is leading, but surprisingly adds a lot to the song and sounds nice. Don't worry, Lifeson still performs some kick-ass guitar solos fitting the song's darker tone. I honestly prefer the heavier live version from 'Working Men', but the original is great nonetheless. (9/10)

2. The Analog Kid. Beginning with catchy riffs and vocals, the song quickly gets slower which doesn't add anything for me. Other then a great guitar solo, there isn't really much to say about this song. It's catchy, but can get really annoying. (4/10)

3. Chemistry opens up with blasting synth, before some really nice guitar chords play. Awesome guitar swirls down welcoming in a great vocal performance by Lee. Then the drum-guitar slams are perfectly complimented by the haunting keyboard. The song remains virtually the same other then a short guitar solo. A great casual listen. (9/10)

4. Digital Man starts out with some great drumming by Peart, yet the guitar sounds a little too catchy for it's own good. Then a reggae sounding melody comes in and sounds annoying and out of place. The solo isn't anything creative. Just a really annoying song in my opinion. (1/10)

5. The Weapon. Fading in with the drums-guitar-synth all complimenting each other, The lyrics and melodies give it a dark tone. I love the synth melodies throughout this track, and the drumming really compliments it. When the bridge comes in, the synth drones while Peart attacks the cymbals. After a great space-sounding solo, the chorus comes back in. After some lighter riffs, the song ends. My favorite from this album and one of my favorite 80's Rush songs. (10/10)

6. New World Man is another popular song from the album. The lyrics are really inspirational and it gets some really fast catchy guitar during the chorus. The synth surprisingly does not play much of a pivotal role in this song. A great song to sing a long to. (9/10)

7. Losing It is a much softer song, but not in a good way. It starts out with some violin combined with synth that does not sound good at all. Lee's vocals are good on this song, but I can't find anything else for me to like here. The guitar solo is so high-pitched, and possibly the worst guitar solo I have ever heard. I'm sorry, but I just can't really find anything to like with this song, it's just really boring.(0/10)

8. Countdown is the grand finale, and a really good one. It starts out with awesome sound effects before the drums signal(No pun intended) the vocals. The synth sort of drones under the vocals, before the sound effects come back. This is a great album closer, I think it would of made a great epic. (9/10)

Even though Signals isn't metal, it's still a good Rush album. If you are a Rush fan it's an excellent addition to your collection if you are a fan of 'Moving Pictures'.

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.

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.
