iTunes Review

Clockwork Angels is the 20th studio album from rock’s holy triumvirate of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, but it also reconfirms Rush’s 35-year-plus dedication to musical and lyrical exploration. The recipe remains the same (as the credits always note, “Music: Lee and Lifeson, Lyrics: Peart”), but the potential for ideas encased in air-guitar perfection keeps flourishing. Clockwork Angels is a conceptual tale about a young man’s dream quest. It involves steampunk, lost cities, pirates, a watchmaker, and more. Musically, Rush doesn't slow down. “Caravan” and “BU2B” exude a heft and dark resonance that recalls Tool. “Headlong Flight,” meanwhile, is another freewheeling Rush track, coasting on a zipline over jagged crevices with Lee as narrator, Lifeson’s careening guitar the guidance system, and Peart’s fluid percussion the accelerator pedal.

Customer Reviews

More of the same

I haven't enjoyed a new album from Rush since Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows. They all sound the same anymore zero creativity. Just because Picasso paint's a picture doesn't mean it's a masterpiece. There has to be some true inspiration found in the work and Rush sounds like a group of really good musicians getting together to just hang out and oh by the way that sounds like a song lets record it.

RUSH

It is so excited to have Rush come out with a new album. With out a doubt is the greatest album since Roll the Bones in 91' and has melodies that surpass anything off of Vapor Trails, Test for Echo, and Snakes and Arrows. It is also amazing that Neil put the effort into creating a story which is EXCELLENT. There were clear and distinct sounds on this album from Rush's different "sectors of their career". Alex Lifeson's solos had the feel of Counterparts but the energy of the "Presentation" from 2112. Geddys bass lines were freakin dirty and the bass line from Headlong Flight was one of Geddy's greatest lines since the 70's. BU2B2's lyrics connected to the Soliloquy. It was a more older and mature look to a future world with a horrible society. Instead of killing him self he decided to let it go. Its so great to have a new Rush album that was so deep and fresh!!!!!!!!

MasterPiece!

Rush fan since 1977 is very amazed by the musicianship and creativity the band portraits on the new recording.
I was disappointed with S&A, but AMAZED how the trio can make their best music, now.
From haunting and emotional strings on "Wreckers" and "The Garden".- to straight clean heavy sound of "7 cities of gold", this album depicts great music while telling a story of a man chasing dreams in the Sahara.
while The Anarchist" "Carnies" "Halo Effect" are kind of songs i never heard being played before by Rush-
they have over achieved their musicianship on tho record by far!
I do have to admit i need 2 weeks to grasp how great the album is, what a great experience!
