Seeing comments, like... they were washed up years ago, Geddy's voice has sucked since this album, Neil has been phoning it in for years. Not only is it a slap to great musicians, but just plain nasty and high and mighty.
They had been working their craft at high intensity levels for over four decades, and still went out worth thier salt and more some. Many of you and myself included aren't the same as we were back in the day. And unless you're award winning artists or highly skilled athletes that have maintained your peak levels, I'd suggest that you keep your bashing to a bare minimum.
I shall now step down from the soapbox. And to those of you that get where I'm coming from, RUSH ON EH!!! #RushFamily
As member of the USA, we have every right to voice our opinions. If those opinions don't jibe with yours, it's still okay. I think they all were working very hard right up to the end but anyone who says Geddy's voice was fine, isn't being objective, which is understandable if you're one of those people who say "Rush wrote the soundtrack to my life." Listen to some of the songs on Snakes and Arrows Live, they're cringeworthy. Was he still trying hard? Hell yes, but as we age, things don't work as well or simply change and when you add to that years of singing, screaming, and yelling, it takes a toll. There's no shame in it, it's just physiology. The shame comes when fans can't (or more likely, won't) hear it.
