I like that review! You know that moment when a band or singer you HATE finally releases something amazing, or does something you HAVE to respect? And you begrudgingly tell your friend who already worships them that you may have been wrong whilst still insisting "but they were always rubbish" whilst inwardly you are filled with doubt?

This review is exactly that! I can so tell the reviewer is annoyed by some newfound respect, and at present can only communicate with "buts" and "whateverz"...ANYTHING BUT ADMIT HE MAY HAVE BEEN WRONG!

Which gives me reason to believe that this time next year they may be given a cover!

What a hysterically human piece of writing!

(Provided you read between the lines).

And never has a surname been so appropriate. La Douche(bag) HAHAHAHA

I bet he is playing it all over again as we speak (and his hot girlfriend was already at the gig! )

Rush: Clockwork Angels Live DVD


Well, it’s here. The new live DVD documenting their highly successful Clockwork Angels tour will be received with open arms by Rush fans all over the world. Those who aren’t fans might be enticed to buy it, not because of the music, but because of all the “extras” it contains. Fans will certainly get the bang for the buck. Distant early rumors about the DVD were rife with speculation about which setlists would be included, but suffice to say the best of both are there. It’s not a secret that here in the offices of RollingStone a favorite pastime was dismissing this largely irrelevant band. No more. With an historic induction in the RRHOF, Rush is now mainstream and simply can’t be ignored any further (having said that, they’ll never appear on our cover).

Many firsts are on display for the world to see with this release. Drum God Neil Peart looks like he’s actually having a good time, whether it’s closing out the epic 2112 with laconic precision, or nailing fans with t-shirts from his high-powered air gun. Astonishingly, there are more hot women attending this concert that all previous Rush concerts combined (probably inserted with CGI), and the band is joined onstage by a string ensemble with hot women playing instruments (not CGI). However, the goodies don’t stop there. The RRHOF induction ceremony is included, complete with Alex Lifeson and Flava Flav doing bong hits backstage. Not to be outdone by that visual statement, Iron Chef: God’s of Rock, the charity driven competition from the vaults of the Food Network is contained in its entirety. The show, which was pulled due to several factors, has Paula Deen in all her glory before her dismissal from the network. In addition, documentaries centering on performing life and backstage drama are included.

The tour, which included a healthy dose of their latest release Clockwork Angels, was perhaps their most successful ever. Interesting the band chose to revisit the 80’s in terms of song choices. That era, which isn’t especially memorable (save the awful videos they produced) to the music community at large, does contain what die-hard Rush fans consider classic hits such as Middletown Dreams, The Body Electric, and Grand Designs. We know, we know. Most people never heard of those songs, but Rush has always catered to their rabid fan base who’s retarded devotion has lined their pockets, and conversely, been their “enabler” to produce moribund compositions. Obligatory radio staples Tom Sawyer, Spirit of Radio and Subdivisions are played with such verve, sexagenarians everywhere should beam with pride. Pick it up. Can’t say you won’t be disappointed, but at least you’ll be amused!

Five Stars out of Five if you’re a Rush fan

Two Stars out of Five if you just enjoy the radio hits

Zero Stars out of Five if you’ve never heard of them

I am grateful for the quality of service provided by the YBG.  Truly, the finest source of news with an interesting, frost bitten Yukon perspective.

But, their IT department needs some assistance and I'm happy to help.  I fixed your link for you. ;)

They've always been real good critics though! I remember back in '75 when Waldorf said " I can't wait to hear Alex's guitar leads when he has the same amount of hair as me. :codger:

One of the rare review where the guys don't talk about the music who are limited to songs of some era, i think he has watched the dvd with no sound, and he only knew that songs listed were from the 80's... Rolling Stones are still the same, superficially funny from the inside to the outside, with a magazine that contains more pictures and pubilicity than real serious writting.  This Andy shoud stay "dansladouche"
