Just listened to Dog Years tonight, some of the most intense drumming...ever! They love (d) dogs, there is a reason.
And Half The World? Amazing guitar and bass.
I speak for myself when I say, ya'll are SUPER critical in a personal way, not a musical way?
Superconductor, how many key changes? And super cool electro-voice add-ins, like Subdivisions.

I will step away from this topic, promise! After watching for a few more days :)

"Tai Shan"
"Scars"
"Need Some Love"
I like those songs but they don't do too much for me

Tai Shan immediately pops to mind when anyone says “worst” Rush song but it’s such an oddball little clunker that I usually just forget it exists.

There are quite a few songs I don’t care to listen to, like most of Vapor Trails, CA or Presto, but that’s partly due to poor production and partly due to what I see as a bit of burnout on their part. Not every song can be a La Villa.

BU2B2

This was the only small interlude part of a concept... and it does nothing for me.

Half the World

Lyrics that could have been written by a fourth grader combined with dull music.
Thing is, I don't know if a fourth grader would write such lyrics :lol:
And the funnier part is that this wasn't written by a fourth grader :unsure:

Faithless. Unimaginative music and Neil's lyrics just rehash what he's already said before on the subject.
BU2B is the same. The heavy main riff is so generic sounding like they composed it in ten minutes flat

That’s in my top 10 Worst, and scratching with its claws trying to reach Top 5.

Faithless is getting f***ed on here a little. I guess atheism is a bad thing?

The lyrics never bothered me. Dog Years’ lyrics never bothered me. Rush’s two worst songs’ lyrics never bothered me (Bravest Face and Spindrift).

Natural Science became my favorite Rush song before I even knew what they lyrics meant.

Rush lyrics were always the icing on the cake but they never totally ruined or made any of their songs.

Repetitive for sure but they never bothered me too much. The song itself I don’t like too much.

I always thought the Cygnus X-1 lyrics and singing was Spinal Tap cheesy. But as an instrumental on the last tour it kicked ass.

:lol:

It’s a southern thang.

As for “SUPER critical in a personal way”, if Rush affects us in a SUPER personal way then wouldn’t it follow that we’d be super critical of this and that?

I don’t mind Superconductor btw, but it makes sense why hardcore Rush fans would at times be overly-analytical of certain Rush moments / traits.

Face Up is different. For sure, very "poppy" and "teen radio" perhaps.

But my goodness, the guitar is nothing to ignore.

I have read before, and continue to believe, they never put out anything they didn't think was worth making.

Perhaps, listen again (!) and just listen to the guitar. Very fun and was probably a great amount of fun to make, sure sounds that way.

...plink, plink.
