"sucks bumholes"...? Talking about the album that has Ceiling Unlimited and Earthshine? I remember buying Vapor Trails at the record store, opening it outside at a bench, putting it in my discman, and walking back to work. One Little Victory I had already heard on the radio. When Ceiling Unlimited came on I stopped dead. People had to go around me and I didn't care. I may have been hit by a bus or something, I can't remember. I didn't care. All I knew was that my Rush was back.

 

Ceiling Unlimited is top tier Rush in my book. Tremendous song. Much of VT is in the same boat for me. Earthshine, Vapor Trail, How It Is, Secret Touch, Freeze are all classics to me.

 

I love Vapor Trails. Ceiling Unlimited is good, but the lyrics keep me from considering it to be great. What does that mean, "ceiling unlimited"?

 

WEBSTER

ceiling unlimited (noun) : a cloudless or nearly cloudless sky : a sky less than half obscured by clouds at levels lower than an arbitrary fixed altitude

 

 

When you think about the rest of the lyrics especially "the time is now again" sections, it paints an excellent picture of Neil's state of mind at the time.

I think that part revisits the whole "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" theme that occasionally comes up in their lyrics.

I love Vapor Trails. There are probably only 3 songs I don't listen to regularly (Anything's better than Out of the Cradle)). It's probably one of my favorite albums by the band. The remix sounds gorgeous.

 

on the contrary, Out Of The Cradle is one of the highlights of VT, though it suffers on the remix.

So it's now been three years since Clockwork Angels was released. I've listened to the album a half-dozen times recently and have to say that not only has it stood the test of time for me, it keeps getting better. I just don't get tired of hearing it.

 

Clockwork Angels is one of my two favourite albums, if not my fave. I love it.

You know. trying to convince someone that a piece of music is great by arguing with them about it isn't the way to make them change their minds. ;)

How about a nice, clean remaster? :) I'd even settle for a remix.
