2112 = Overrated.

Rush have done far better things.
I think it's a decent album. The only song that annoys me is Tears.

The album itself is overrated compared to other Rush albums. I mean everyone points to 2112 as a masterpiece, and if you ask anyone to name a Rush album, they're going to say either 2112 or Moving Pictures (more than likely anyway).

To me, the album gets it's dues, and then some. I just wish people would think outside of 70's and early 80's Rush because there's literally a whole other Rush to be explored with the 80's and onward which many people never see, or simply choose not to because they're too busy praising and playing 2112 along with everyone else.

^^I don't understand why other bands can't put out live albums and DVDs like Rush. Every live release is great, the DVDs are well filmed and contain great material.

Rush designate concerts that are to be filmed/recorded professionally ahead of time. R30 is a prime example.

Other bands just take what they can get.

i got really into rush when i got moving pictures, and i look to be getting 2112.

i think i already posted here though

Probably Neil Peart.

People can praise all three of them individualy with their instrumental prowess, but when you get right down to it, Neil Peart is Rush. Had he not replaced John Rutsey after their debut, the Rush definitely would not have been.

i personally think hemispheres is their best album by far, with signals up for second

I want to get the Test For Echo album.


You're right, there's not enough TestForEcho.

Quote by Maet
I like the heavier chords, and the lighter solos personally.

It's neat because Lifeson always has a signature guitar sound, and it gradually gets fuller over the years. Like you can't even notice it unless you go straight from 2112 and Hemispheres straight to Test For Echo and Vapour Trails.


You can notice a change from say Fly By Night to Permanent Waves definitely. Alex starting using chorus on his guitars to create the feel of two guitars.

Is there anyone who likes Leave That Thing Alone? I still think it's their best instrumental, yes even more than YYZ or La Villa Strangiato. The version from Rio is absoluetely insane, the way that Alex sort of bends in the tremolo bar and fades out while Geddy keeps grooving.

My favourite album would have to be Rush in Rio. Working man is just orsum

^^Permanent Waves is a great album. Man, I've been on a Rush craze lately. It's been a while since I last listened to them.

How about that outro in 13/8? Odd time signatures are my fave.


Definitely.

As of late I've been listening to almost ONLY Progressive Rock, especially Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, Rush, and Yes.

I haven't listened to Rush lately. Even though I just came off an 11 hour bus ride from NY with my iPod full of every Rush song (literally), I've been listening to three other bands more than Rush. Not one Rush song that whole eleven hours...

Dream Theater, Beck, and Daft Punk pwn.
#156
I just started listening to them a few days ago, and I love what I've heard from the albums that I own (2112 and Moving Pictures). My favorite song would have to be "A Passage To Bangkok".

Dream Theater is where it's at, man.


Amongst other bands aswell, hell yes.

I listened to Images & Words, Metropolis Pt 2, Awake, Six Degrees in their entirety on the ride. Along with Beck's Odelay and Mellow Gold, and Daft Punk's Homework and Discovery. I even watched all of Clerks 2 on that trip.

Needless to say, the supposedly 'crappy' battery life of iPods really impresed me that 11 hours.

But I digress.

For those who've heard Vapor Trails, what's your opinion on the production? It's a good album, but damned if those studio heads really fucked up in some places.
