09 - Best Song From Signals
Posted 17 October 2013 - 12:59 PM
However, I voted for "New World Man" and here is why.
—It's the song that I heard on the radio that introduced me to what would be my favorite band when I was in high school.
—It's an incredibly well-put together shot-glass of what Rush is about. Great lyrics, the drumming is fantastic (but restrained JUST enough on this song) and the bass line is amazing.
When I first heard this song, it told me the following in three minutes: that guy plays the HELL out of that bass, the drummer sounds like a beast, the guitarist is ultra-tasty, and the lyrics are very intelligent.
As a radio single, I don't believe Rush could have done any better. It sure worked for me.

As regards to my vote, having just gotten the album last night and listening through it multiple times today, I voted for The Analog Kid. I mean, DAT LICK! Subdivisions and New World Man are both close seconds of course, but honestly, I love just about everything here. I think I need a bit more time to get into digital man and maybe The Weapon and Losing It, but I acknowledge all of those as sweetly awesome (the latter two spine chilling though they aren't in my head yet). I don't see why countdown and chemistry get so few votes. Both of those, lyrically at the very least are just awesome. Countdown in particular is a partial saving grace for an album that doesn't exactly need one as it's the only song that 'paints a pretty landscape,' closer to their old story-telling ways, rather than metaphorically or directly conveying some kind of message OR telling one unusual man/kid's story/state.
