  1. Wow, just wow... I was there and it was surreal and very emotional as well! Seeing & hearing 3 Rush songs live once again wasn't something I was expecting at all! When the lasers hit the stadium after Ged had introduced YYZ it felt like I was back at one of the R40 shows I attended back in 2015... And then it hit me that it was 2022 and tears welled up in my eyes... I cried all the way through YYZ and I was still crying when Queen performed their opening song. So happy I was able to capture their part of the livestream on my phone after the show had ended so I could see them up close as well since I was seated at the back of the stadium during the show.

  2. Rush- Clockwork Angels My life has changed so much since I first bought this over a decade ago. Hard to comprehend really, but there we go. Me and this album have been on a wild journey, and I love it more than ever!

  3. I watch stuff like The Crown because it's interesting drama taking the viewer through modern British history. I have no interest in family sit downs with Oprah or Piers Morgan, or magazine puff pieces. I don't care aboot King Charles and Camilla. Harry, William the whole lot mean nothing to me. Queen Elizabeth shook hands with Sinn Fein when it was time to recognize the peace. The queen seemed like a genuinely decent person who lived an interesting life, so RIP.

  5. Rush- Rush Rush- Fly By Night Rush- Caress Of Steel Rush- Vapor Trails Rush- Snakes And Arrows Rush- Clockwork Angels Decided to do a weird thing, play the first three albums and the last three albums. Wow. I really am amazed by this. A strange decision yes, but what struck me is the diversity and the consistency of six different albums, from polar opposite sides of the spectrum of their career. The growth is immaculate. Suffice to say, I realise now I love the first three albums way more than I remembered. I think Rush have 19 albums in my top ten 😂

  7. Kind of a shame that some are criticizing the precision of semi-retired older guys who no longer rehearse their complex parts for months on end.

  12. I'm just sad that he wanted time with Olivia and that was taken from him. Would relish seeing him happy with Carrie, enjoying life. He left us with such an incredible body of work and he didn't owe us anything more. RIP

  15. AP - September 10, 2022 Although it has been touch and go with Her Majesty's health for the last year or so, Buckingham palace announced in a statement that the Queen and her family were comforted that she lived long enough to see the 40th Anniversary release of Moving Pictures. With the band delaying the release a year past its actual anniversary, there were rumours that the royal family were feeling stress that the band would not get the box set out in time. It has been long known that Moving Pictures is the Queen's favourite Rush record by some margin. Known for her cheeky sense of humour, Her Majesty would often pull the vinyl out in front of visiting dignitaries, point to the cover sleeve and say, "Look - the photo is taken at ME Park!" The newly crowned King Charles III, off the record, stated after his mother's passing, "It is a bloody shame that the band could not pull it together to get the damn Signals box set out on its proper anniversary - she would have had something to look forward to, and it may have just made her hold on through the fall." The new King made this comment, despite the fact that is well known that the Queen was not the biggest fan of the so called synth era, and preferred the classic, 3-piece approach. We hope her joy at receiving the deluxe Moving Pictures box set kept her vital signs up, if only for a little while longer.

  16. Rush- Clockwork Angels Rush- Grace Under Pressure Two phenomenal albums. I am really appreciating CA more and more these days. The lyrics, the unique vocal phrasing and melodies, the bass lines...such an impressive, ambitious work of art!

  17. Rush- Roll The Bones This album is one of the most comforting, life affirming albums in my collection. I've really bonded with this album, it's warmth and it's lyrics and it's playing. I love it so much

  18. Rush- Test For Echo And my addiction to this weird album continues...some terrific playing (as always). I enjoy this album purely for the playing. It's like the goofy cousin of Snakes And Arrows.

  20. Rush- Clockwork Angels Something I really want to say about this album, I have always felt it carries through musically in a way that feels like an ongoing stream of consciousness. It's a beautiful album that the more time passes, the more I appreciate it. It doesn't feel like a collection of songs, more like on long piece of music. It's grandiose and cinematic, and at times I can forget what I'm listening to and think it's a movie if I shut my eyes. A stunning album, ten years on, I think I love it more than ever.

  25. I went many years without listening to Rush. When I came back to the fold, it was most of Signals that stood out. Especially "The Weapon", with that amazing guitar solo from space, but other tunes too. (I'd never forgotten about Subdivisions.) I love love love the sound of this record. I know Alex argued about the mix, but I think the integration of keys with guitar is superb. And Neil's patterns are unrivaled -- he plays better here than he does on MP,.

  29. I’m not a big fan of the monarchy, but it’s still sad to see Elizabeth’s death. She was a beacon of stability, duty, and stoicism in the face of virtually every crisis for the past 70 years. God bless her.

  32. I love Omar Hakim and have seen him play many times and I am sure I never said "He should sit in with Rush" but that made total sense.
