I'd say decline is too harsh a word. Also they didn't immediately improve on the debut. Rush to FBN to CoS is a decline that suddenly reverses and launches to the top with 2112. 2112>Presto IMHO has very few (can count them on one hand) bad songs.
Then they became inconsistent again. RTB is saddled with Heresy and Face Up, Cp is a big improvement, then T4E backslides.
Followed by their second big comeback: VT, S&A and CA are all better than RTB and T4E
If anything the band is declining NOW! The boys are human too right? LOL! I mean sometimes during the last few tours it was hard trying to listen to Geddy sing.
Neil seemed like he was huffing and a puffing like Puff The Magic Dragon! HAHAHA!
To be honest the only one who is NOT declining is Alex!! Damn he's getting better during each tour!!!! JMO!!!
How will Geddy's voice survive the next tour in the spring of 2015? Thank GOD there is no new album so maybe they will play "Jacob's Ladder" so every fanboi can grab a Coke, pop some Cheetos and jack off on the internet! Jesus!
I pray there is no orchestra this time around. Maybe they will open with an instrumental medley like they did on the R30 Tour.
What will this tour be called? R40.5?
I'm going off the rails of a crazy train. I have just lost my wit.
So hey, it is what it is.
We are lucky our band is still alive and well.
Personally I'm just not going to travel anymore for the band outside of California.
Time will tell.
