  1. Hadn't listened to Sector 3 remasters for a while but found the sound really dense so I dug out the corresponding 90's remasters of the albums and they sounded much better. I could turn the volume up and dynamically they sounded great. When I did the following with the Sector 3 remasters the sound tends to get clogged and I'm sure there is clipping happening. I preferred the 90's remaster of Power Windows, that brass burst at the beginning of Territories seems condensed on the Sector 3 version. The harmonics from Alex's guitar in Grand Designs appear clearer in the 90's remaster. A similar thing happens with Signals which I've been listening to a lot lately, I have a remastered version of the Analog Kid on a compilation called Rush Gold and it 'bubbles' along where as the Sector 3 version sounds a bit dense especially in the chorus. I'm beginning to agree with the suggestion that the Sector 3 remasters have sacrificed dynamic range for volume. I have a decent stereo system, the 90' remasters I can crank up and still hear the separation but the Sector 3 versions seem to become more dense and become irritating, if that's the word, to the ear. I know this has been discussed before but have a listen and compare, and keep the discussion friendly. It's only in my opinion and I know there are people who think the Sector 3 versions are a lot better. I have a compilation called Rush - Gold and the songs sound miles better than their Sector versions, looks like it was done by someone called Erick Labson.
  2. Which of these gone-too-soon pioneering 90s artists do you prefer?
  3. Time for the gluttons for punishment to get some pain in. Expect the haters to have their knives out and for a shitton "All Counterparts except Driven". Obviously, this is not the case for me. I consider Test For Echo to be significantly better than Counterparts, although it should be interesting to see by how much in a track by track battle. Animate < Test For Echo Stick It Out < Driven Cut To The Chase < Half The World Nobody's Hero ≤ The Color Of Right Between Sun & Moon > Time And Motion Alien Shore ≥ Totem The Speed Of Love < Dog Years Double Agent < Virtuality Leave That Thing Alone < Resist Cold Fire > Limbo Everyday Glory < Carve Away The Stone 8 to 3 win for Test For Echo. This is no real surprise for me. There are very few songs on Test For Echo that I do not like. Interestingly one of the two songs I dislike on Test For Echo won its battle, Dog Years. I am not one to sit here insulting RUSH songs like others, but I have to say that was a real dog of a battle! The close ones were #4 and #6. I love Nobody's Hero & Totem, but both Alien Shore and The Color Of Right are always favourites of mine when they pop up on my playlists. I really identify with the lyrics of The Color Of Right. The song means a lot to me. I also want to praise one of the songs that receives the most hate on this board. Virtuality is one of my favourite songs, not only from this era, but overall by the band. And it isn't just the awesome guitar riff that I love, I really like the lyrics. I know people constantly bitch about the "net boy, net girl, send your message around the world, put your message in a modem and throw it in the cyber sea..." line, but I think it is not only cute, but actually not so dated that it should be criticized. Yes, yes... more messages sent through the internet via cell phone towers today, but the line speaks to the constant changing of the ways we communicate, but that fundamental human contact remains the same. The methods of communication are always evolving even though the messages don't change significantly. I don't hear criticism for 867-5309/Jenny. I don't hear criticisms for the countless songs from the 60s written about writing letters to love interests. The message in the song is actually pretty timeless to me! Anyway... let's get the hate started. I'm sure many of you are salivating at the opportunity to hurl insults at the 16th album by your alleged favourite band.
  4. So how about a real one? :) Ooh...what to choose... 1. The Show Must Go On - Queen (Entre_Perpetuo)
