Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. Rush’s eighth studio album, 1981’s Moving Pictures, hoisted the trio out from its progressive rock trappings and exposed it to the radio-listening world at large with such groundbreaking hits as “Tom Sawyer” and “Limelight.” The former song sets the stage for the album, showing a cool fusion of new wave synths sprawled across a hard rock soundscape as drummer Neil Peart takes his otherworldly drumming flourishes to previously uncharted levels. Geddy Lee’s lyrics (cowritten with Pye Dubois) reimagined Mark Twain's character of Tom Sawyer as a modern, free-spirited rebel whose defense mechanisms mirror those of society. Where “Tom Sawyer” mused on the discontent of an imagined character, “Limelight” reflects the vexation of Peart, who was becoming uneasy with Rush’s snowballing success and the burdens of fame. The song boasts an incredible guitar solo that Alex Lifeson has claimed is his favorite to play live. The eerie “Witch Hunt” is the third part of Rush’s “Fear Series”: four songs focusing on aspects of life ruled by fear. “Vital Signs” closes, ambitiously braiding prog rock with reggae.

Customer Reviews

How times have changed

It's amazing how the reviews for Rush have changed over the last 30 years or so. When this album came out, Rush couldn't buy a mainstream positive review. Now that the band is universally popular and its fans are maturing, all of a sudden intellectuals are giving props. The fans made this band and supported this band from the earliest days, and we don't need professional writers to confirm what we already knew. Rush rocks, and is probably in the top 5 of greatest bands ever.

Perfect

Every. Single. Song. All of them, are perfect, thus making this a perfect album. From the synth riff of Tom Sawyer to the speeding Red Barchetta and the soaring instrumental YYZ, this album rocks. Many great bands such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd inevitably have a filler track in their best albums, this one doesn't, get it.

One of their greatest albums

This is the best album to play air guitar and air drum solos with Alex , Neil and Geddy! This is a 10 on a 10 scale!
