A true masterpiece was released 28 years ago today.
https://en.m.wikiped...i/Presto_(album)

Love it, love it...I just listened to Presto a couple of weeks ago, for the first time in awhile. One or two weak-ish songs, but overall, such a triumph.

I love the sound of it, all the way around, even if it is thinner than others. It fits, it works. I dig.

All this talk about Presto and testes...well, someone decided to put back the testes (it wasn't me).


I like the attempt but the overall execution fails. Seem like an amateur on low rent equipment tried this.
It was done by an ex TRFer who got banned.

I love that line:  "...everyone knows everything and no one's ever wrong"

It's been so long since I listened to the album, i forgot how good some of the songs are.  I am going to listen to Presto today.

Should have known that anyone with that name would be a lousy record producer.

And have the album sound like GuP? That is even more flat sounding than Presto. GuP is one of the most criminally ripped off albums in the production department. I know it says Peter Henderson produced it, but Ged has said that the band basically did it themselves. Because Henderson was incapable of making good decisions, or any decisions. And all of that indecision shows... The GuP songs sparkle on stage, but on record they are lifeless.

Great line - that album has a few of them. My fave "You can twist perception - reality won't budge"

Presto is definitely an album that would have benefited greatly from the vinyl format Rush had been used to recording in - knock it down to 8 songs and it would be stronger. Maybe Side 1: Show Don't Tell / Chain Lightning / The Pass / Presto Side 2: Superconductor / War Paint / Scars / Available Light

I LOVE HYF yet detest Presto. Interesting the varying takes on these albums. At least someone likes these things.
