  1. I was fine with them dropping Manhattan Project, as its never been a favorite of mine. I love Dreamline, and so does my wife, who was thrilled to hear that live. Us old school fans may get tired of some songs, but for folks like my wife who are relatively new to the band, I am glad they do Limelight and Dreamline. Honestly this show was a good mix of hits and deep cuts. They covered the ones they had to, as well as the new material (love that too!) and I still heard a few live I hadn't heard in concert before. I went away happy. As for Al's guitar tone, it did sound a little flat, but I chalked it up to being on Ged's side of the stage, and not being able to hear it as well. I didn't realize it sounded that way to everyone. But it wasn't distracting. It was still a great show.
  2. QUOTE "Halo Effect" is destined to be among the band's classic power ballads with a dramatic middle and end. I missed something here quoting this, halo effect is more a mediocre ballad. I completely disagree. I think It's up there with Tears, Madrigal and Different Strings. And those three songs are among the band's classic power ballads?? I love Halo Effect, and Tears, and Different Strings, but to be honest, as stated, they are average Rush tracks. When I think classic power ballads by Rush, I think Closer to the Heart.
  3. Neil looks like an angry resident of Whoville.

  5. A lot of SnA (musically speaking) reminds me of MFH. Only MFH is a far superior product.
  6. QUOTE Carnies is one of the best tracks on CA, people just haven't realized that yet! Agreed - it is definitely one of the songs that jumped out at me. It does have a clunky title, but the song itself is great!
  7. CA is to SnA what FBN is to Rush... CA is to SnA what 2112 is to CoS... CA is to SnA what PoW is to GuP... CA is to SnA what CP is to RtB...
  8. Neat-o peat-o!! Oh, and Skeddeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. 1. La Villa Strangiato 2. YYZ 3. Leave That Thing Alone 4. The Main Monkey Business 5. Where's My Thing? 6. Limbo 7. Malignant Narcissism 8. Hope
  10. Nice one Animate! Gonna frame this! It was fun! We absorbed (and are still absorbing) CA, but doing so in smaller doses. This has inspired us to do other musical marathons as well! Groups on the agenda: The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Styx, Foo Fighters, and possibly The Stones, although we have nowhere near all of the Stones albums (after 1974 who would???) But we love the early stuff.
  11. Caravan and BU2B will get played for sure. Clockwork Angels Carnies The Anarchist Headlong Flight The Wreckers Wish Them Well The Garden
  12. CA is better than: Rush Caress of Steel Hold Your Fire Presto Roll the Bones Test for Echo Vapor Trails Snakes and Arrows CA is NOT better than: well, um ... I think you can deduce these from the other list!
  13. Overrated: Yea, The Anarchist. Its a good song, as they all are. But I don't get all the craziness over it? Underrated: Carnies -- quite possibly one of the coolest songs in the last ten years from Rush.
  14. I was there the 2nd time through Atlanta on that tour! It was cool seeing all the cameras and thinking, yes! This will be on DVD! Of course, only 4 songs got on DVD, but hey, I can say I was there.
