Good,bad,andrush Posted December 31, 2010 Share Posted December 31, 2010 I feel as if I'm the only person who thinks every Rush album is great. (including the two new songs) Rush: A great rocking 70's album with promising musicians and catchy songs. FBN: A harder rocking 70's album with a monster drummer and several prog influences. CoS: An underrated and overshadowed but crucial progressive rock/metal album. Contains two brilliantly crafted epics and three hard-rocking songs. 2112: Doesn't need a reason. AFtK: Brilliant guitar works and harmonies, and Xanadu and Cygnus X-1 are absolutely brilliant and masterpieces of prog. Hemispheres: Doesn't need a reason. PeW: Doesn't need a reason. MP: Doesn't need a reason. Signals: Songs many could relate to at the time and even now; brilliant combination of progressive rock with synthesizers. P/G: Some touching songs with intense musicianship and masterful use of synthesizers. PoW: Same as P/G, but with a different atmosphere; this theme deals more with human interactions in society. HyF: Making synths sound melodic with brilliant drumming and basslines. Presto: The Pass and Available Light are reason enough, really. If not, this exemplifies the return of GUITAR. RtB: Dreamline and Bravado are reason enough. The funkiness present in the album is definitely worth listening to, and songs like RtB and GoaC are just essential for prog rockers; this is a completely unique style. CP: A unique blend of grunge/alternative and prog. TfE: Continuing the sounds present in CP, but now with masterful drumming. Resist is also powerful enough on its own, as is Test For Echo and Driven. VT: The return after hiatus; a metal/grunge progressive combination. S&A: An interesting blend of folk with vague country elements and a whole bunch of metal and progressive rock. And I listen to A LOT OF MUSIC. Not just Rush. I think that every Rush album belongs in the top 2% of every album in existence. There, I said it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
