  1. 1. Anthem or Time Stand Still?

Thanks Johnny

 

I have never heard Triumph before but this is really great, right up my street. I absolutely love Boston and The Babies with John Waite.

 

They are nothing like Rush really

 

No problem.

Surprised you had never heard Triumph. They've got a lot of great songs.

Fight the Good Fight is my favorite though:

I have had a right rant tonight at the thread anthem v time stand still. So I suppose I have to await a few slaggings

Which part do you think you'll get a slagging for? The part where you said Neil looks gay? The part about the whole thing being terrible? Or was it "shit"? Or both? Other? :LOL:

 

Sorry Johnny

 

Just my opinion but the track and video is rubbish.

I like the song but yeah I agree that the video is total crap. I had already commented on the video earlier in this thread.

As for the poll, they are two completely different songs for two completely different moods and thus I cannot state any consistence preference.

That's true. But in the case of frozen yogurt vs steak I can still choose which one I like more.

 

Hey is Rick the singer as well?

 

I thought they were a power trio? do they have another guitar player for live work?

 

I will listen to some Triumph stuff now to get myself educated Johnny

They are a power trio. Rick and Gil both sing. Overall though, Rik sang more.

When I first saw the thread title, I thought it was quite funny

 

When I saw that the voting was actually close, it became not funny

 

Well I have just watched Time Stands Still

 

The video is tragic really terrible

 

Neil looks very gay in that vest. Alex sound is nice but the whole thing is complete shit.

 

I will watch the rest now

Time Stand Still is a masterpiece from the RUSH era with the highest quality songwriting. Anthem is a weak paint-by-numbers rock song from when RUSH still didn't have a unique identity and often devolved into a Led Zeppelin clone. Even when I listen to songs from Fly By Night, Anthem is a must skip for me, while Time Stand Still is a can't miss track on a top 10 RUSH album. This was one of the easiest votes ever.

 

I agree that it was the easiest vote ever, but then we apparently couldn't disagree more.

 

Anthem is anything but weak and I absolutely hear a unique identity from the very first note. Neil was the missing puzzle piece that Geddy/Alex needed and vice versa. Paint by numbers??? Riiight......because there've been so many rock trios who could all play like that. Honestly, I think Anthem destroys just about any Zeppelin song, but then I've always found them massively overrated. For all the worship they receive for supposed innovation, LZ themselves were often clones (and at times, BLATANT clones) of stuff they learned and borrowed from.

 

Bottom line IMO, Anthem sounds like pure Rush. TSS, while not necessarily a terrible song, sounds like an elevator music version of Rush, as well as the point when they'd clearly lost their identity (which even Geddy acknowledges in BTLS).
