When I get that familiar tingle down my spine, it's good. And I got the tingle!

Both are very fine songs.  I'm very pleasantly surprised by the relative heaviness and mid-to-up tempos.  Love the keyboard flourishes and less of the "oooh-ahhh" bg vocals this go 'round.

As far as the songs go, I actually give the edge to BU2B.  It's just a great melody...perfect combination of a heavy riff and a more lilting and atmospheric chorus.  As a song I think this one works better.

That said, Caravan is badass and far more musically interesting.  It'll be the favorite overall because of the breakdown as much as anything else and rightfully so.  From 3:25 through to the return to the chorus it's pure Rush bliss.

Now hopefully the rest of the album will live up after MONTHS and MONTHS of getting familar with these two tunes.  They'll have a lot to live up to.

Kudos to the boys and Nick for putting these together so quickly and not sounding at all rushed.

The signature Rush interplay is back.

Classic Rush all over both tracks.....yet as always they always sound current.....that is their brilliance and why they have endured and are relevent....and why finally after 35 years the mainstream has caught on to the religion that is Rush.

You're welcome.  I feel for our European/Scandanavian kin who have to wait.
