how can you possibly tell if an album will be good by the artwork and song titles :hecho:

It's called a JK :hecho:

However, in all seriousness, a very high percentage of the time I can tell almost everything about an album by doing everything short of listening to the music (i.e. who's playing, producer, record label, band name, album title, song titles, cover art, etc.). It's really simple therefore to decide amongst the ENORMOUS amount of music at our disposal today what I want to listen to and what I can pass over :D Usually :cool: I love surprises :party:

Also, that 45-second clip they've got up from the first single gives me that beautiful Rush-euphoria again :bliss:


SECOND ONLY TO THE MIGHTY IRON MAIDEN MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this album is excellent they'll be better than Maiden at this point.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Rush>>>>>>>>any other band including Maiden.

I'm really excited about this album, I honestly think it will be their best since Power Windows. Then again... everyone always says something like that before a new album comes out. The fresh new producer should help a lot though, he really gave Rush their kick in the arse they desperately needed.

And... the artwork looks fucking awesome. Another brilliant cover by the very talented Hugh Syme. Hurray for Rush!!

Frankly, Vapor Trails was a disappointment, and Feedback may as well have not existed. I hope this is a return to the sound honed on Counterparts and Test for Echo.

How do you feel about the 2112 album, do you think there are any fillers on it?

Cool list, but where is Permanent Waves? Natural Science is one of my all-time favorite Rush songs.

1. Moving Pictures
2. Grace Under Pressure
3. Permanent Waves
4. Hemispheres
5. Signals

This list is about as hard as a top 5 Maiden list. A Farewell To Kings and 2112 should be on the list but I can't quite squeeze them in.

I think there's a shitload of filler on 2112. In fact the only songs I like are title track, Something For Nothing and [the live version of] A Passage To Bangkok. Anyways, I don't have many Rush albums, so lets see if I can orchestrate a top 5.

1) Hemispheres
2) Moving Pictures
3) A Farewell To Kings
4) Counterparts
5) Signals

I don't think there's any filler at all, and I don't understand how Rush fans don't love songs like "Tears" and "Twilight Zone" especially.

It's one of my fave's too, but sadly I do not actually have the album Permanent Waves, though I have all the songs off it in one form or another.

That's very close to my list. I'd only switch in Grace Under Pressure for 2112.

I will say I used to like Twilight Zone, but I'm so bored with it now. The only thing I like about it is the intro.

The reason I think there are so many fillers on 2112 is that, even though they are good... they just can't compare to the title track and 'Passage to Bangkok'. If Tears, Twilight Zone etc... were put on a weaker album, I would appreciate them more.

The new single 'Farcry' is up for streaming at www.rush.com. Sounds friggin awesome, and the new Rush layout looks great!!

Since you're all doing it:
1. A Farewell to Kings
2. Permanent Waves
3. Roll the Bones
4. Signals
5. Hemispheres

For me Rush are very much related to middle school nostalgia for me, so I especially can connect an album like 2112 to that. Since that album was bigtime as my personal crossroads in musical taste as I started getting into proggier, more "obscure" stuff, it had a big effect on me, its just got that special selective appeal that I can relate to on a personal level that other people might not get. Anybody can understand the greatest of the title track or "A Passage To Bangkok", but the other songs for me all just associate with something else, as does the album as a whole. I think for a lot of people that's how music becomes important to them, and its not like a conscious decision, it was just there at that time. I maintain that musically all the way around it is brilliant, and I'm glad most agrere cuz 2112 is in a lot of lists in the top 3 or so. Anyways that's the schpiel, Rush owns :D

Yea, I don't know what's up with that one. I had a RtB phase and listened to that album on repeat for like 2 months. It's not even that the songs are amazing... just something about that album really clicks with me :bliss:

The songs sound much better live from that album (Dreamline, Bravado, Roll The Bones).
