  1. Great song. Love Alex's guitar work on it. 9/10
  2. Open Secrets Middletown Dreams Subdivisions Mission Marathon But I love lots of the others
  3. 25000th topic! I decided to make a pretty straightforward pill. Which of the Rush hits is your favorite? I picked the songs that get the most play on the radio and brought Rush mainstream attention.
  4. We hold beliefs as a consolation A way to take us out of ourselves Meditation or medication A comfort or a promised reward?
  5. I find no absolution In my rational point of view Maybe some things are instinctive But there's one thing you could do You could try to understand me I could try to understand you You could try to understand me I could try to understand you
  6. I don't think they were talking about the first show. In the movie, when talking about the "great" Toronto show, they specifically referred to the "Friday" show which was the second show, not the first. I agree the first show was not great but the second one was. Yeah, they were talking about the Friday show. The Wednesday show was a trainwreck
  7. Do I think Rush will play again? No. But I do believe that Alex and Geddy might do something together.
  8. :goodone: I feel the same...I got emotional about it at the end, too. Not all the way through; a lot of it was also just fun. I highly recommend it to all of you! Any audience members crying? Didn't really check around but people were in a sort of sad silence afterwards.
  9. There was footage from Toronto and a little bit from other shows here and there. It mostly focused on the relationship between the band and the fans.
  10. I absolutely loved it. But by the end I just got hit by a wave of emotion. I'm gonna miss those guys :(
  11. Although it's not up front like the 70's albums, the guitar sound on Grace Under Pressure is fantastic.
  12. Cut to the Chase I find no absolution in my rational point of view
  13. Not even The Garden? It is what it is and whatever :)
  14. He posted a picture of Thunderbirds he must've recently acquired on Instagram with the caption "Sometimes you just have to throw some love at some basses that I've overlooked for years...super cool 64 reverse Tbirds in Pelham Blue, Kerry Green, Ember Red, Heather Mist Poly, Frost Blue etc." I wouldn't mind hearing him play one on a new solo record :)
  15. On Rush's website it says that the documentary will be available on Blu Ray/DVD on November 18th. Will definitely buy!
  16. I may not have any kids, but I can tell the story of how my dad got me into Rush. I remember being young and hearing Snakes and Arrows in the car and telling my dad "That guy can't sing!" But then one fateful day we stopped at the store after school to get some groceries and saw Retrospective III sitting on a CD rack. My dad decided to buy it and we listened to it all the time in the car and that's where my love of Rush began believe it or not. I basically memorized every song on Retrospective III and when I got my first MP3 player the only two albums I had on it and listened to were Snakes and Arrows and Retrospective III. Then one day in 2010 my dad asked me "How would you like to go to a Rush show later this year?" I of course said yes, because at that point I really liked their music. So in August 2010 (I was only 9 at the time) I went to my very first Rush show on the Time Machine Tour in Omaha, NE. It happened to be on the night before the first day of 4th grade. That night I was absolutely blown away by how incredible they sounded live. After that, my obsession had started. I began buying all of their albums on iTunes and listening to them. I loved each one and ended up becoming a total Rush nerd, unlike my dad who is less hardcore. I would often times spend time in school doodling Rush stuff (mostly Clockwork Angels stuff ) Since that first show I've been lucky enough to go see them 3 more times. There usually isn't a day that goes by without rush being listened to for me.
  17. :bump: The steinberger bass was great. The sound was precise and it fit the music they were making at the time. It was also great for mid range sounds unlike the Wal which was way too thin sounding.
  18. they must have flipped the video in Half The World...everyone looks like they're playing left handed. Kinda annoying. Pretty sure the uploader did that to avoid copyright. Could be wrong though.
  19. The Body Electric? That's the one! I like that one too! The 1-0-0-1-0-0-1 part is catchy.
