Sadly, I'm not expecting much from the new album.

With an album in 91, 93, 96, 02, 04, 08, and 2012, I would hardly consider them a golden oldies band. Just sayin'

considering about 20% of material from those years is actually good, that could be debatable...

I'd say about 20% is bad, but then again, I'm a blaspheming 90s lover. tongue.gif And even if you think they suck, those albums immediately take Rush off the golden oldies list who haven't released an album in like 20 years.

I give up at this point, your not getting what it is you want from this band no matter what I guess. at the risk of insulting you, it does seem extraordinarily narcissistic of you to be so condescendingly critical of them in this manner. with that in mind I think it would be a fun debargument to have on MY SHOW sometime if yer up for it. Me and my other show partner had a similar discussion after the Hershey PA show that I think is a goof to hear. The Great Debate w/ Beaner & Weevil

i can handle the insults, so no worries there. i'm not exactly making softball comments, so i expect fiery reactions. wink.gif

 

in terms of extraordinary narcissism or condescending criticism, well, i understand what you're saying, but really in the end this is one man's opinion, and it's just a discussion as far as i'm concerned, even if it does get a bit heated sometimes. we're on a rush message board, so i'm stating my opinions. just because i state them as vociferously as i do doesn't mean i'm not cognizant of the fact that they're my individual opinion. the amount of time in my life i spend thinking about rush is actually precious little, so it's not really an issue for me except the isolated moments when i'm discussing it. i don't go home and cry in my milk about rush never making albums anymore. obviously rush is going to do whatever they're going to do, no matter what anyone thinks, this fan or any other.

Well, when you dont make as much money on albums as you used to, you're going to have big gaps like this, particuarly since 2000. It's just a totally different world. Why would Rush make an album every year just to break even or even lose money?

You can even look at the new popular rock bands today and they do it the same way:

Linkin Park- Albums in 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010

The Killers-Albums in 2004, 2006, 2008...still waiting for next

Foo Fighter-2002, 2005, 2007, 2011

Green Day-2000, 2004, 2009

My Chemical Romance 2002, 2004, 2006, 2010

U2-2000, 2004, 2009

Red Hot Chili Peppers-2002, 2006, ?

Metallica 2003, 2008, ?




I could go on and on...

A lot of the Rush fans get on the boyz for not doing enough studio work, but NO ONE does it the same way. Look at the bands above...they are much younger and are at about the same pace as Rush since the turn of the century

Now, don't go confusing the issue with logic and facts!

 

Let's just stick with the talking points:

 

1. Rush are lazy, greedy, money-grubbing capitalist pigs.

2. Neil is probably mind-controlling Alex and Geddy to force them into this constant cash-grabbing.

3. Old Rush good, new Rush bad.

Errrrr, no. Completely wrong. The longer a band goes on the less creative juice it has. It has always been thus. It will always be so.

 

The Rush creative juice bottle started to empty after Hemispheres, oh yes indeedy.

"Completely wrong" LOL Wow...I thought maybe I would be just a little bit right, but Cozy Toes says no, so guess not... sad.gif

 

By the way, did you read the rest of my post where I cited all other bands that are in or were in the past decade their supposed creative peak? And the fact that they are recording at a similar pacs as Rush? Or am I completely off on that as well?

 

Good times...
