Let the adulation and comedy begin. Many on the forum have been keeping an eye on these guys waiting for them to review and react to Rush....here it is! It's a blast to listen to these dudes.

And this song made the playlist.

Great review and thanks for posting, Duff!  It's a great way to re-discover a song I've heard hundred's of times...and probably take too much for granted these days.  It really is a fantastic instrumental.  :haz:

Interesting how Geddy really recieved the majority of high praise from Ryan, though all of them got a lot. He was smitten with Ged.

I'll give them this....... They seemed to have grasped the concept of Rush and YYZ (in particluar) for the most part.  There are a lot of people that listen to "rock" that never have and never will never.  

It's funny that people who don't listen to much good rock have the opinion about the the bass and the drums being good but they don't have much to say about the electric guitar.  The importance of it is probably tone deaf to them until/unless they explore further an develop and ear for it.

It would be a strong followup to YYZ.  Hope they can handle 70's Geddy vocals.  :D
