  1. 1. Envy of None - Are you buying this album?

    • Yes, first day buyer, no hesitation. It's ordered!
    • No way, it's crap. Just because it's Lifeson doesn't make it worthwhile
    • Maybe, I'll think about it
    • I might wait and see, listen to it and see if it grows on me
    • Yes but I won't listen to it most likely
      0
    • I'll buy it and sell it on ebay
      0
    • I just fancy the young woman, I'm a pervert
    • I like the butch, old guy, I'm a man-chaser (Becky Blueschica)
      0
    • Yes, at last a Lifeson release that you can dance the funky chicken neck to
    • I'll kill myself before ever buying a copy
      0
    • I'll download it, I wouldn't pay a penny for it
      0
    • I'll download it too, and if I get caught I'll say Fridge put me up to it, if I'm going down I'll bring him with me!
    • Fridge here, look no one is "bringing me down" anywhere. You couldn't handle the job.
    • This is Earl...It's not heavy metal! I WANT A HEAVY METAL ALBUM FROM LIFESON! f**k you ALL to HELL!
    • My name is Maverick, I prefer an album of instrumentals at the standard and style of La Villa and YYZ. Anything else is bullshite!
      0
    • Tony R here, I challenge Fridge to a curmudgeon-off and if I lose I'll grudgingly buy a copy of the album. But that's never ever going to happen, no one can beat me, especially not Fridge!
    • Fridge here again, to Tony R: You better get ready to buy that album, you ain't beating me sonny Jim, not in this lifetime!
      0
    • JohnnyBlaze here, I don't buy albums, I f**k hot women! I haven't got time for anything else, that's why I'm never here anymore! Now use your money to buy me drinks and stop being stupid...

    • Rod From RIO and Toronto here, I don't buy albums I run marathons and I stay hard for the full 26 miles. It helps to think about Tony R's rotund figure...
    • Zepphead here, when I heard this album was coming out I started selling myself on street corners to sailors. I did this to prove I wouldn't buy the album...that's my story anyway...Hello Sailor!!
    • 73 here to restore order...I'll take the copy that Tony R buys after he loses to Fridge!
    • Tony R here, to Fridge: you're gonna be old and grey before I ever lose a curmudgeon-off. 73 you'll have to get your copy from Fridge after he's lost and is a quivering mess
      0
    • Becky Blueschica here, I'm the entertainment for the pre-tournament section of the curmudgeon-off. I'm going to strip for the boys!

My cd came today. I've only heard it all once but I like it. I like her voice a lot. And I like their sound. Not what I was expecting.

Not too keen on that particular female voice to be honest, sets a monotone undercurrent through the whole album, spy house suffers badly for it, better as instrumental imo. Western sunset grabbed me a bit but can't see me going back to album

It's not her voice that does that. It's the boring, lifeless music that sets the monotone undercurrent.

For ONE THOUSAND dollars, you get an autographed vinyl and a 30 minute Zoom call with the band. If I had the extra cash I'd pay, just to talk to Alex.

For $1000 I’d want a BJ from the singer.

You normally go for the £10 ones in Bolton don't you?

I have zero doubt Tony has to pay for sex. They probably take one look at him and double the rate.

Is this a point where I should post a random guitarist in mid-shred?

That would be better than the current direction this thread is going in, yes.

Not the heavy metal or hard rock mayhem that we want from Lifeson then? He stopped doing solos, now he's stopped doing riffs!

You know how sometimes during the synth era Alex would just play some more atmospheric stuff to help enhance what was going on in the rest of the song. So, he was still there but not really there. That's basically what he's doing on this. The only problem is that Geddy and Neil aren't here to make up for that. So, Alex being atmospheric on his own without any help is pretty lame.

Maybe he wants the synth era back, only there's no synths and no music. He should have done a kick-ass metal album with a supergroup or something, anything beats this. He just hasn't got the fire anymore.

Ok, Never Said I Love You quite catchy, could listen to that again. Enemy seems ok without hitting too many heights

Still haven't cracked it open yet. I'll dig in this weekend. Liked the music I heard during the interview. Interesting to see the touring band they put together for this.

I'm more interested in how Alex is going to adjust to playing clubs and living off a tour bus again. He's not going to have the same luxuries he did during Rush's last few tours.

I don't know the other post brought it up. I would imagine Alex wouldn't want to tour with this that way he can avoid as much public embarrassment as possible having his name attached to such drivel.
