I read old forum posts often, it helps to immerse myself into the forum culture. Your profile picture, well we all have our distractions - mine is choosing a name based on a personal experience.
I really did think about a name for a while before choosing. Then over time it feels too personal and every time I see it, I think really? You chose that
? Oh well.
Well, please check back in with what you are listening to.
I have heard people say "well Rush is OK but their music sounds the same". (A victim response to mediocre and lack of choices in Radio play). It makes me wiggle in my wellies. So far from the truth - if one takes time to listen.
The themes behind the albums, the evolution from grungy prog to synth and back to heavy. Their choices of added instrumentation, and of course Neil's themes and Alex and Geddy compiling sounds - the back and forth developments of songs, changing producers - but always the same hard working, true examples of stand up human beings.
Just one example of how awesome I think they are: A young fellow learns violin because of a Rush song he heard in 1982. Then the last tour, 2015, features a string ensemble and the same
dude is playing live on stage...to the same
Always check out Youtube and Neil's books for more details
