Got to go traditional and pick 'Working Man'

But there are no 'traditional' working times anymore......

   -Some get up a quarter to 5 YEAH and got to work at 6:00

It just doesn't have the same PUNCH to it like the old 9-5 days.

Up until this tour, I could have picked none other than "Working Man". But what an awesome way to start an album, and a career, with "Finding My Way"!

YEAH! OHHHHH YEAH!!!

I cannot vote because there is no such thing. It's not that I think this album sucks, because it really doesn't, but I have a hard time considering it a Rush album without Neil.

I too think about this album differantly because Neil is not there. On the other hand it does have Ged and Alex so I picked Finding My Way.

It's funny with me - I know what you guys mean on the non-Neil thing, but there is something raw to this album and once in a while I totally crave it  2.gif

It's not like a VH issue where fans listen to David Lee Roth and Sammy. They're listening to the group.

Thank God Rutsey never came back and left......then came back........and left.

I nominate 'In th Mood' for thought-provoking  song. It always makes me ask deep questions, like:


How is 7:45pm late when he doesn't get up 'til 7am (a la WM)?  Unless , of course, it's 7:45am  and he's looking for a quickie before he leaves for work??


Why the change in  dialect, from high literary with 'I feel I'm in the mood' to first grade 'them eyes'?

What exactly are his lies? The typical male/female bed hooks, or something more sinister???

Who is 'Cookie'?  

This subject will obviously require more study..... yes.gif

For one of Alex's most exquisite and intense guitar solos - Here Again

Technically, his playing improved and developed immensely over the years, but did any other solo ever convey as much emotion??.
