  1. This. There's a finality to the music now. As if there were any doubt..
  2. I can't believe it. I simply cannot. Rush were the artists that pushed me deeper into music and truly made me appreciate it as an art. So many musical avenues were opened by Rush and Neil pioneered much of it. This is like losing... I don't know how describe it. A revered family member? A long lost pen pal? A goddamned personal hero? I don't know... this is awful. I can't even imagine what Geddy and Alex went through keeping his illness hidden for almost four years while being pestered by fans over whether Rush will ever record or perform again. All we can do is adhere to what Neil would like us to do and not vaunt him as some unparalleled god. Love his music. Cherish it. But at the end of the day he was a man, albeit a brilliant one. Rest in the deepest of peace, Professor.
  3. Fun, astute reviews. This guy has reviewed quite a few other prog band discographies (Yes, ELP, Jethro Tull, etc.) and he's just now getting around to Rush. Will post updates in this thread intermittently. :)
  4. Might as well post. My rankings switch up every so often. 1. A Farewell to Kings 2. Hemispheres 3. Permanent Waves 4. Grace Under Pressure 5. 2112 6. Power Windows 7. Signals 8. Clockwork Angels 9. Moving Pictures 10. Caress of Steel 11. Hold Your Fire 12. Vapor Trails 13. Fly By Night 14. Counterparts 15. Roll the Bones 16. Snakes & Arrows 17. Presto 18. Test for Echo 19. Rush
  5. By far the lowest rating I've heard of for it. Everyone I know thought it was more or less a riot. Church scene anyone? I am definitely one of the minority group. It really turned me off. I must be getting old and prudish, as the #1 turnoff was the 10,000 F-bombs in the dialogue. With Firth and Caine in the film, I had expected something more sophisticated. I actually love that Firth and Caine did something wonky and over the top. :dweez:
  6. Didn't care for Pacific Rim, Godzilla (2014), Cloverfield, Monsters, or The Host (2006) ?
  7. Well from what I've gathered the park has been up and running for a decade or so and interest has dwindled, so they cooked up a new dino in the lab to reinvigorate interest? Whatever. As long as I get to see the original T-Rex take down this Frankenstein's monster, I'll be happy.
  8. Hope to GAWD it's shot better (I swear it's disorienting to watch. I don't think there's a single shot that lasts longer than 2 seconds in the whole concert) and mixed MUCH better than the Clockwork Angels blu-ray. Is there someone we can contact to ensure it's a quality release? Maybe if we all band together and send hundreds of emails to the right person they'll get the message?
  9. Just a heads up you might want to edit the thread title as it implies that some albums got skipped on the tour and those who still remain spoiler free might see the threat title from the front page of the site. Anywho... Driven Show Don't Tell Open Secrets Marathon
  10. I'm a big fan of the og Jurassic Park and as a kid I was quite the dino fiend. The long awaited -true- sequel releases in a little over a week. How do you guys feel about it? Will it disappoint? Live up to potential? Or do you just want to see dinosaurs on the big screen again, no matter the quality?
  11. Why is anyone surprised? Furious 7 made a billion and a half dollars.
  12. Sounds like Mad Max just isn't for you then. The former two criticisms have always had a place in the series. I actually found that there was more character in this than the Road Warrior. It's just not build entirely on a mountain of exhausting exposition. It shows, rather than tells. And I appreciate that. So many directors spoonfeed audiences but George Miller sticks to his guns. Hats off, Georgie boy!
  13. I honestly thought it was the best action movie since Terminator 2. Beautiful action set pieces and I found that the film had a beating heart to go with it. This is how you fcking do it! Also, 98% isn't the score out of 100%. It's an aggregate. 98% of critics LIKED it. You can like a movie, for instance, and still give it a 3/5. Can't tell you how many people I've met over the years who misunderstand RottenTomatoes. :codger:
  14. Yeah, it's pretty awful. REALLY hope a new sound engineer works on the Toronto recording for this tour.
  15. Wouldn't it be a downer for Losing It to close the first set?
  16. Has there been any word on what show they're recording this tour? I've been avoiding this site the past month.
