Album Review

Not as expansive as the impressive Chronicles, this edition of the excellent Gold series covers many of the greatest hits from one of Canada's top exports and finest contributors to the rock & roll tapestry. Largely covering Rush during the '70s and early '80s, Gold's track sequencing is wildly erratic with no real logic in place concerning how the songs blend into one another. But all of the hits are here, from the earliest — "Working Man" and "Free Will" — all the way up to the later MTV favorites. This covers pretty much all that a casual fan will ever need. Diehards will most likely own all of these songs thanks to Chronicles, but those who slept on that anthology would be well served in picking this up to fill holes in their collection.

Customer Reviews

A decent look at Rush

This gives a fine example of what Rush is all about. It's way better than "Spirit of Radio"! Basically, it's both the "Retrospective" discs combined into a 2-disc set. The only difference is "Something for Nothing" has been replaced with the more known "Working Man". Overall, a great compilation.

Good (And More Cost-Efficient)!

If you're wondering just what Gold by Rush is, I'll tell you. Pretty much both Retrospective volumes put together in one neat package. This is a lot cheaper than getting both of them separately (I think), and also, it adds "Working Man" to the list on disc one! I can't believe that "Working Man" wasn't on the first Retrospective Volume originally... This, next to Chronicles, is probably the essential Rush compilation album. However, there are about five or six of them, all basically having the same songs on them, so there could very well be some that are similar to this that cost even less. No really good song is omitted here. Except for "YYZ" and "Something for Nothing" ("Working Man" replaced "Something for Nothing"). Other than that, and the fact that it STILL isn't in chronological order like Chronicles was, the Gold collection is flawless. Go ahead and get it. You'll be glad you did. Recommended Tracks: Disc 1: "The Spirit of Radio" "Bastille Day" "2112 Overture (Retrospective Edit)" "Working Man" Disc 2: "The Big Money" "Limelight" "Tom Sawyer"

Good collection

There have been a few of these greatest hits packages released lately, but this one has some extras. "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" and "Xanadu" are two longer songs that are left off the usual sampler. They stand up well and make excellent counterpoint to the expected hits. I'd recommend it for someone interested in or new to Rush, since it shows more of the band than just the singles. PS: According to Neil, they have been in the studio working on new material.

Over the course of their decades-spanning career, Canadian power trio Rush emerged as one of hard rock's most highly regarded bands; although typically brushed aside by critics and rarely the recipients of mainstream pop radio airplay, Rush nonetheless won an impressive and devoted fan following, while their virtuoso performance skills solidified their standing as musicians' musicians. Rush formed in Toronto, Ontario, in the autumn of 1968, initially comprising guitarist Alex Lifeson (born Alexander...
