goose Posted April 23, 2018 Share Posted April 23, 2018 Neil was mostly a mediocre lyricist after HYF.Neil's lyrics are usually either incredible or jaw-droppingly terrible. Not much in-between. More of the former than the latter, obviously, but there isn't much middle ground. Neil's lyrics start being consistently awesome with Power Windows and generally get better throughout their career, culminating on Snakes & Arrows, which is the best collection of Neil Peart lyrics ever assembled. Neil's lyrics prior to Permanent Waves are largely uninspired, boring, and pedantic with few exceptions.Should not agree, but kind of do.To wit... The hypocrites are slanderingThe sacred halls of TruthAncient nobles showeringTheir bitterness on youthCan't we findThe minds that made us strongCan't we learnTo feel what's right and wrong :eyeroll: What exactly is wrong with those lyrics?sophomoricCould you give us an example of lyrics you don't find sophomoric?Dreams flow across the heartland... Just one line? AG hates that line. ;) Too funny! Rush lyric sword fight.A running gag. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
