  1. Yeah just to clarify the awesome tracks for me are Caravan BU2B, Clockwork Angels, Headlong Flight and the Garden. Those four as good as anything the band ever did for me and BU2B has something even more unique and powerful - avant garde even for rush A couple others are good but sacrifice quality to fit into the longer storyline imo, shoulda been more simple like 2112 etc but is what it is and i can't argue with how the guys approached it as they demi gods of their trade of course
  2. Lol this is bit weird for a truly hardened rush head like me, like i've heard every rush album and every track on them probably hundreds of times but, i listened to Halo Effect once - and decided never to listen to it again. Don't have it on any devices isn't included in my CA playlist i just refused to listen to it ever again. The album CA only rush album for me that disappointed in quite a large part, half of it exceptional up there with the very best rush and the other half just sub standard to say the least, Halo Effect being the prime example of it. Sidenote, the brilliant half of CA written before they went on tour and the sub half after, like they slipped too far out of the groove but nevermind, the great half was more than enough
  3. Yeah enjoyed that, when Alex fading it out i always see him crying on ASOH just awesome
  4. Any of 2 or 3 on CA, probably Halo Effect if pushed to name one
  5. Yeah same here, if you take the very best of CA out is the timing of permanent waves etc and as such is of that very best rush standard For eg/ Caravan, BU2B and Clockwork Angels for me is essentially Spirit of Radio, Freewill and Jacob's Ladder, kind of remarkable the band could hit that sublime level in their final work
  6. Much more than a musician, one of the great artists of any type, paints with sound most imaginative rock guitarist there will ever be his range from most sensitive and delicate to most powerful and aggressive. Over the years he even looked the coolest. The man's a demi-god i personally couldnt thank anyone else more for
  7. Heck we're all going to die, everything gets blown away like smoke in the wind, if ged and alex decide to make new music as rush with another percussionist and, god forbid, even a new singer, then so be it let's go, can't think of anything more exciting on the horizon. If turns out to be a stain on the rush legacy so what, that's what it'll go down as and nobody should care that much. Bring it on i say, alex & ged doing COMPLETELY different rush, not completely different music it'll still be rush, is just a real buzz of a prospect
  8. Big difference between a Rush with new percussionist just playing Rush live and a Rush actually making new music Strongly held view by most, probably, that Rush cannot exist without one of the three members, each being so essential to the chemistry and until now i shared that view but.. F**k it, why not. Make new stuff too guys. Rush 3.0 bring it on.
  9. Just read an article saying ged releasing two tracks alongside his memoir that didnt make MFH he's 'shined' them up https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/music/geddy-lee-finishes-off-two-unreleased-songs-for-new-memoir-plans-new-music/article_b806c521-19c7-5fe6-b76e-f4d253089a58.html Apologies if already posted
  10. Not underrated to me, together with brian may the greatest most imaginative and coolest guitarists of all time

    There are no words

    Sounds nowt like phil :)
  12. Always thought limelight a bit different to the rest of album - just Al's guitar has a different more basic rock sound to rest of tracks. Vital Signs more in keeping with the album i find
  13. Remember when Workin' Them Angels released as a single and could not for the life of me understand why, as a hardened rush head the song's good i really get it but couldn't see myself as a younger person being excited by it in any way, would've instantly turned off and away to something else. Thankfully my first experience of rush was the spirit of radio and permanent waves in general, which pulls you in without a choice of course
  14. Back in the glorious day when new Rush was possible. Genuinely made life worthwhile at times. All gone, like smoke in the wind :(
