plus i always wonder what the album would have sounded like if it were produced by the guy who left them hanging. my guess is that it wouldn't be as good but you never know

I think that'd've been Steve Lillywhite, who I can imagine they were looking to for, amongst much previous, his most recent work on U2's War album, from which

oooh interesting!

It’s not even 6am out here and the only place I know that’s showing the SB is Hoooters which is in the city center. And that’s 2 trains and nearly an hour away. So I’m going!!! :lol:  :hail:

Doors open at 7:30am, kick off at 8:30am! :blaze:

I was not a big fan of this album when it came out. It seemed like a watered down version of Signals, which was kind of sad. It's grown on me over the years though and I like it now.

I loved it when it came out and I still love it.  The sound on this album is one of the most unique they've ever put out.  Everything was so clean sounding.  One of Alex's best albums imo.

“Someone should explain to Geddy Lee that you must be a good songwriter to get an ‘odd-time-signatures’ tune across pop radio,” he said. “Listen to ‘All you Need is Love’ by The Beatles or ‘Money’ by Pink Floyd and there are prime examples.” - Steve Lillywhite

Someone should explain to Steve Lillywhite that the fans who have adored Rush for 40 years don't really give a shit.

GUP would be one of my top 5 RUSH albums.  They haven't made an album since Grace that I like more.

That’s a pretty rude way of Lillywhite to express his thoughts on Geddy’s songwriting ability. f**k him though; I like Grace Under Pressure as is. :hail: Who knows what it would have been like if he actually had honored his agreement with Rush?

Yeah, if I were quoted saying something like that in an interview, I would feel pretty ashamed.  I'm so lucky, though - I'm not famous, so I don't get interviewed.  I can keep my snotty opinions to myself.

Unless I share them on here.
