Clue69Less Posted September 13, 2010 Share Posted September 13, 2010 QUOTE (Kugel @ Sep 12 2010, 10:04 AM) This tour has been my favorite vocally since he switched approaches, so probably since the Presto tour. The resonance has increased a lot and he's started to be able to get that WHILE enunciating the lyrics, which seems to be an ongoing issue. Excellent post, Kugel. Now please go get me that piece of crap in the basement - I need to turn back the clock so I can hear again all those early performances where the mics and PAs that were used by Rush were not up to the task and they coupled with small arena acoustics to produce those odd tones that burned the tiny hairs off my earlobes. I've only seen two shows from this tour and I love the body and tone Geddy is getting. I booted both shows that we saw and I've listened to them many times (while comparing to other boots and commercial live recordings). They all confirm what I heard live this tour: Geddy did miss a note here and there. On the 8/16 Red Rocks show, he had a pretty good first set but seemed to come out a little cold for the second before hitting his stride and kicking serious ass. On the 8/18 show, his voice was fresher and had more power but he wasn't perfect. But I thought - in total - that he sounded really excellent. The 8/18 show was the single best show I've seen, all things considered. And I've seen a few shows "back in the day" that were virtually perfect from the technical point of view, but they were a tad sterile, maybe too serious. So I'll take the warts I'm hearing now and gladly accept them in order to hear the body and soul and to get wrapped up in the joy. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
