Cut to the Chase is the only one I particularly want to hear from this album because it's a very good song that's never been done live before. Everything else from it I'll take or leave live. Don't get me wrong, I think as a whole Counterparts a strong album but that's more because of its constancy than any particular songs standing up as really great by themselves. For me, Presto is the pretty much the opposite with some really amazing songs like The Pass and Available Light but also some real clunkers such as Anagram and Superconductor.

Even in a thread about Counterparts, my beloved Superconductor gets bashed.  Really?!

It sucks. And I only can say that about a handful of Rush songs.

That is one of them.

Soz. I was only using it as an example. I just don't like that song very much. But hey, I love Tai Shan! Can we consider that a fair trade?

I've just listened to this for the first time a few nights ago, and I'm not sure what to feel about it. Unlike Roll The Bones, all the tracks do seem to leave their own mark and the record is nicely heavy, but much of it just seems to be somewhere between good and great, but not much more. I feel like I should like it a ton, but it hasn't moved me very much.
Then again, I felt the same way about Hemispheres on first listen and it ended up growing on me a lot.

As for the question, I think I'd like to hear "Nobody's Hero" (this one DID move me) or one of the first three.

Ignore the production and listen to the songs.  No wait, if you do that you won't ever want to hear most of them again.

CP has got to be the goofiest  Record they ever recorded.  I don't mean goofy as in oh that rush so much fun......i mean goofy as in just STOP, lol.  Nobody's Hero, Speed of Love, Alien Shore, Double Agent, Cold Fire.  Awful.

I think so too. The solo rips. I really like this one.

I have been re-enjoying this Counterparts record for a couple of days now. To me it's like reading a good book. Each & everytime you do, you discover something different. Even if just the passage of time in our own lives changes the interpretation.

I think I actually posted this comment on another thread but my sometimers (hasn't turned into alltimers yet) will not allow me to find it and copy/paste it so here goes. After all are there any bad rush songs? Some maybe completely wierd but not bad. impo anyhoo Play'em ALL ;-P
This time I was able to copy and paste
nuff said ;-P

Does anyone hope that on the r40 tour they do more material from counterparts? Would love to see leave that thing alone live.

The 90s were no their strongest years.

If this tour is about the favorites, the songs that got the most response from audiences, (as NP said) then they'll be doing the "hits" from every decade and not digging deep.

Which is fine by me.

Close enough.  Superconductor is better than Tai Shan, but I like both.

I agree that this is going to be a "hits" tour.  Therefore either Stick It Out or Animate will probably make the cut although I'd love to hear Cut To The Chase.

It'll be hits but by what Rush means "hits" they mean the radio hits, but with fan favorites and resurrected old songs they and at least some of the fans have wanted to dig out.

Cut To The Chase might just make it *fingers crossed*

Cut To the Chase would be great, but Animate? Haven't they played that a number of times? Alien Shore has never been played. Yes it's lyrics are meh, but it would be interesting to hear the music live.
