I swear people only dislike S&A because of the vocals... better vocals than the other 2000s albums
Lol no I have no problem with the vocals. For me the songwriting on SnA is just really forgettable at times and even sub-par. Only Far Cry really strikes me as a great songwriting accomplishment for the band. Maybe The Way The Wind Blows on a good day.
Armor And Sword? The Larger Bowl? Faithless? Good News First?
Armor And Sword gets boring. The Larger Bowl I can't remember how it goes off the top of my head. Faithless I truly dislike and makes my bottom 5 Rush songs easy. Good News First is sub-par.
For me, the vocals are one thing - the worst thing. But then the songs are plodding, as if I’m walking knee deep in a swamp.
On a 1-4 star scale...
Far Cry: 2 stars...the best of the 2 star songs
Bravest Face: 1
We Hold On: 2
Average: 1.76 stars
Some of those 2s are generous simply because they’re not as unlistenable as the 1s.
how the hell does Far Cry get 2 stars? and Workin' Them Angels? have you been doin' crack lately?
Why are other’s opinions so hard for you to accept? Nobody goes nuts when you rip Presto.
I'm getting sallllllty
I accept opinions, just wanna joke around (whether or not the jokes are bad)
but tbh I would like to hear why Far Cry and WTA are 2 stars...
You want to know why I think Far Cry and WTA are just “okay”? This is your question?
a) the “oohs” don’t help
b) if there’s a Lifeson solo I don’t even remember it
c) the chorus does absolutely nothing for me
d) all of the above
e) the real answer is d
a) I didn’t even remember how this goes and had to check back at the lyrics to jar my memory of the melody
b) I feel like I’m riding an old horse through some massive sand dunes in 110 degree weather with 99% humidity
c) read c as “plodding”
d) I already mentioned plodding knee deep through a swamp in a previous post - - apply that thought to this song
e) the lyrics don’t bother me really but it does have a whiff of “look at me and look how far I push myself”
f) certainly a-e
There’s a reason why my Snakes & Arrows CD is the most pristine looking Rush CD I own. Meanwhile, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures are beaten to shit as if they’ve been through a few decades of gladiatorial combat at the Colosseum.
