I got that one around 1980 it was cool. It might be one of the reasons why I like songs like Best I Can and Making Memories better than most Rush fans, also The Twilight Zone and Cinderella Man, which don't seem popular on this board. Listening to songs in a different context sometimes has you hearing it differently.

Aye! I've got a couple of these, The Collection on Castle Records and a Japanese Victor Hero, Hero. The tracklist is slightly different though.

Fairest to less fairest:

Signals
Vapor Trails
Test For Echo

I used to have Signals up towards the top but I'm just finding lots of reasons to really not be that big a fan of it, a lot of it has to do with the mushed up guitar tone that was vastly improved on Grace Under Pressure. Most of the songs are good-excellent.


T4E and Vapor Trails both have some real stinkers but also have some really good songs.  Really wish they didn't kick T4E the song to the curb after its supporting tour.

Ged was probably embarrassed about the lyrics.

Tell him to suck it up cause he's got some awesome bass lines in that one!

Though tbf he has awesome bass lines in almost every Rush song, even on Hold Your Fire when he actually plays it.

He might even have great bass lines on Presto besides The Pass, you'll just never be able to hear it underneath the sheet metal

it would be better as an instrumental,  or he could rewrite it with updated lyrics,  since the original ones were embarrassing by the time the T4E tour was half over.
