I merged this and Godeater's threads. They were both posted at pretty much the exact same time -- just so happens that Gangster survives as the thread starter.

This is the full song, too, not the radio edit!

VERY FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

1. The sound quality is horrible - I'm assuming this is because it's a compressed file on the Rolling Stone site and that it will sound much cleaner/clearer on the CD.  The lyrics are VERY hard to make out.

2. VERY F*CKING HEAVY - definitely a continuation of the sound they started on CP and especially on T4E - not crazy about how relentlessly heavy it has to be.

3. Otherwise sounds pretty damn cool.  For awhile I was afraid there would be no real guitar solo, just repeating of the main riff(s), but thankfully there was one in there - not the best Alex solo in the multiverse, but still really cool, and the instrumentation sounds great even with the muddiness of this version.  I at least really like it, and I could grow to love it, especially when I can hear it clearer and discern the lyrics!

FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Neil hasn't honestly played with this much intensity in DECADES. You can actually hear him playing as hard as he does live, which probably hasn't happened in a while (in the studio).

Also, how credible does the article about rush the cover of rolling stone seem now lol.

I dont wanna go to work. f**k.

7+ minutes of Goosebumps.

I can't remember a Rush song that grabbed me by the balls like this on a first listen. It has certainly been decades.

Listening for the second time. I am getting a classic Rush vibe from this. It might not be By-Tor, but Alex's solo and Geddy's sustained wails evoke classic Rush to my ears.

I'm glad this wasn't just me. I'm listening to this in a library and I was thinking my earbuds died.

What a monster track!  More of this, please.

Interestingly, RS has mistakenly listed this as an Atlantic Records release.  I'm sure Roadrunner is thrilled.

AWESOME song. Love it.

This is not a leak, this is orchestrated release marketing.

Huge kudos to Gangsta for being able to type under so much brain breaking pressure... true GuP indeed!

I am so floored by this surpise I didn't notice it's the full version until you guys mentioned it. Like 3 times...

Happy times on TRF!

I too am concerned about the sound. But I'm guessing this is just an ultra-compressed file.
