iTunes Review

There’s really no better way to commemorate Rush’s 2013 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame than with The Complete Mercury Years. Boasting a voluminous 141 songs, it sequentially compiles the 12 studio albums that the Canadian prog pioneers recorded for Mercury. The pristine remastering here is immediately noticeable from the opening “Finding My Way,” the lead track of the band’s 1974 eponymous debut album. Back when drummer John Rutsey predated prodigy Neil Peart, Rush played hard rock similar to early Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. But the album’s originally murky fidelity made it hard to home in on the nuances of the band in its early stage. Now the riffs here and in the hard-grooving “Working Man” can be heard in all their intended glory. Of course this fidelity extends into more notable moments later in Rush’s career. The title track of 1975’s Fly by Night now sounds more stereophonically panoramic, and Geddy Lee’s prowess as a bassist really pops out of the mix. Even the originally stellar production of “Tom Sawyer” sounds acutely enhanced.

Remastered?

Are these the Remastered versions??

RUSH ENDURES

So - first I slam iTunes(!) Why post an 'albums only' listing? @ least give us a song to hear. like maybe 'TOM SAWYER or FLY BY NIGHT!' Maybe 'LIMELIGHT!' Something... Now to Rave on RUSH! This is the band that continues to amaze me. Thier songs endure the test of time & sound fresh everytime I hear them. i can hardly wait to hear these remastered releases. This collection should insure their place in Rock History is solid FOREVER! Love It!

Most Hardcore Rash Fans Already Own All Of These….

…..that's not to say this isn't a great deal. It is, especially if you don't own some of the tracks, discs, etc. And yes, Rush is purposely misspelled in the title.

For those that are just now discovering this iconic, amazing band, this is a great evolutionary collection - from the early days & thematic releases to more radio friendly tracks, to finally the most debated period of the band, the heavier synth years. Through all of that, the musicianship, amazingly, constantly improved. The complexity of the music obviously increased, and Neil's already amazing lyrics evolved, as well.

Enjoy the journey of a constantly evolving, adapting, amazing band.
