Clockwork Angels

Without a doubt, the biggest suprise of 2012 for me. I've never voluntarily listened to Rush. Never DISliked them, but never got into them. When I saw some dudes here raving about this album I thought, "Shit, I gotta check this out." Holy shit is this album fucking good! My jaw stayed on my computer desk for the entire first 2 tracks, Caravan and BU2B. I almost can't believe how good those first 2 songs are. Just wow. As awesome, superlative musicianship by all three, and Geddy Lee's vocals sound just as clear to me as they do on albums from 20+ years ago. The chorus in Caravan is one of my favorite musical moments of 2012, and probably in the top 25 of all time. I absolutely love thta fucking song. Carnies and Seven Cities of Gold are also killer tracks. Album could be even higher, but last couple songs while still good, are nothing outstanding.
