I'm nearly f***ing speechless and overjoyed at the sheer ass-kickery that is Caravan. Just...wow.

BU2B has great energy and Neil has a sick fill at the end. This song is heavy and kicks ass AND there is no Geddy Lee Chorale Experience anywhere in sight.

Rush f***ing rocks!!

I absolutely LOVE them both.

My first thought at the start of BU2B was that the opening riff sounds like Bulls on Parade by Rage Against the Machine. laugh.gif

I'm really happy about the return of the keys!! 1022.gif

So if this is what they sound like now what happens when they record the rest of the album after they get their "touring chops" as Geddy had mentioned?  laugh.gif

I was thinking as I listened that if this is the type of album they want to make, it's good that they want to sharpen their chops to a finely honed edge by touring before the bulk of the recording.

Very good way to put it. Rush is in it to win it. Holy crap. Love them both, glad to hear the synths back

That breakdown in "Caravan"... 73, you've been talking about those big breakdowns recently, and how there hasn't been one for years. I swear, the band has been reading TRF! yes.gif
