You could hire Segue to write up an album synopsis to include with the CD package, but only if he promises to keep it under ten paragraphs.  :lol:

Think of all the money you could charge for the package.  You could put:  This latest Rush album includes an in-depth analysis of each song by Segue Myles (of TRF fame).

I can hear the coins clinking and the cash registers clicking nonstop even as I type.

In my opinion, it would have been a fine album had they not loaded it up with inferior tunes and instead just stuck to maybe seven or eight songs.

We will discourage sales if we do that.  Better to surprise everyone.  You'll have pocketed the profits by the time they find out they got more than they paid for.  :lol:

I shouldn't have voted for that.  It's not one of my favorites, but it doesn't deserve a "worst" vote.  And the best part is that the song is short.  :lol:

This album is like Counterparts II.  It sounds great, has horrible lyrics, and only has a few songs that aren't embarrassingly subpar by Rush's standards.  Of course, like most sequels, it doesn't succeed as much as the original, which, in this case, is good, because Counterparts only succeeds at sucking.

This was the hardest for me to vote in because most of the songs are mid tempo trugdefests that don't go anywhere and they have generally bad lyrics.  I have a hard time telling which song is which because they sound the same.

my Edited version has 9......45 mins and much better.

I swear Rush needs to stop hanging with yes men.'

They should hire who then, Terry Brown or Chris Squire?

That's why I initially hated the album.  They do all sound the same.  If that isn't bad enough, whoever inspired Geddy to do all those "ooooh's" ought to be :bang bang: .
