No.  The part from 3:21 to 3:52.

Technically you are right though. :cool:  But that's not the part that makes me tear up.

Got it... cueing up now... the part before the solo!   aaahh!!! :) :) That part is magical.

That part in the song always had kind of a reggae feel to it to me.

Gonna gush over "The Enemy Within"
Very underrated song! Love the bouncy energy, and the chorus is great! It's a shame they only played it live on the GUP tour.

Also, I started a channel where I upload rare Rush bootlegs, and i'd like to gush over the awesome vocals in this version of "Cygnus X-1":

I love that song.   :wub:

  I thought it was wonderful how they did part of it during R40, and it was one of Geddy's best final moments with Rush.

Here's an awesome Hemispheres Tour concert, Gothenburg 1979 (Forgotten Kings, 5/23/1979), one of Alex's best guitar nights, his guitar tone here is unbelievably powerful, heavy, and raw like i've never heard before! Great quality too, and it's complete!

For me, there are two general categories of music:

1 - Rush
2 - Other stuff.

Yes, I do like other music. But there is no other music that will make me stop in my tracks and command my full attention any time I hear it. I can be at a social event, engrossed in conversation with an interesting person I've just met - and then I hear a Rush song playing and suddenly completely lose focus on the conversation as my attention is involuntarily diverted to the music I hear in the background. It can be embarrassing, but I can't help it!

I've had this happen too. It's hard to explain to people who aren't fans how much the band means to you. It's kind of like seeing someone you love across a crowded room. Nothing else matters at that moment.

This is how I feel whenever I am deeply into either Springsteen, Lacuna Coil, Paradise Lost or Nightwish. These four...my biggest obsessions.

Currently LC are that band.

But there was a time I felt like this about Rush. I'd like to think it will happen again.

I'll be doing case file inventory tomorrow, so I'll be chained to my desk and laptop.  So the headphones go on and the CD's go in, starting with ASoH and some other smoking tracks.

The perfect nineties album for me:

1. Dreamlike
2. Bravado
3. Roll The Bones
4. Animate
5. Double Agent
6. Between Sun And Moon
7. Ghost Of A Chance
8. The Big Wheel
9. Heresy
10. The Speed Of Love
11. Resist
12. Cold Fire
13. Everyday Glory

I love all these songs.

Listened to Grace Under Pressure this week and I am still so in love with it.  It was the album that got me hooked on Rush.  I was a late comer but that album always makes me happy, even though a few songs are dark.  I agree with Eel , enemy within is a catchy one and so is Kid Gloves.  Listened to it at work last week when I was alone and cranked it up  :haz: :rush:
100100100  love the hook in that song...who knew computers pray??

I think I'm about due for another Rush marathon.... :) :) What to start with?  Probably Show of Hands, just like Pjbear05 mentioned above.

It's time to get back into Rush.  :)

This isn't that clear, but the sound is pretty good.

Geddy doing some Hey! Hey!'s during Territories.  :lol:

I bet he misses performing live very much.

Getting to hear Territories again was amazing.  Loved hearing Body Electric too.  Analog Kid is always awesome.

His voice was still pretty good.  Whatever happened, happened after September, 2012.

Listening to the six hour remastered bootleg that someone on youtube published a couple of years ago.  It's got some cool stuff.
