mish for a few reasons, like the wall vs dark side of the moon, lateralus was mostly expected, whereas the evolution between Undertow and ∆nima was astonishing and unexpected. second i think ∆nima is a more balanced album, from beginning to end it keeps your attention where lateralus, and this is only my opinion, seems to trail off a little bit.change the track order a bit and they'd be a little more even.lastly, i'm in an angry/cynical state of mind so perhaps i'm just more in tune with ∆nima than the hope of Lateralus.but that could change

can you tell how much i l@ve talking music?does it show?..damn

Raph?  Why don't you write about music?  You know, for reviews and such?  It is your passion.

(geez, I just saw Megadeath and Metallica now, I have to leave, I will never stop typing)

So Raph ... what thoughts do you have about

...and justice for all

YOU should be a music critic... and if you create an agency, I would love to be part of it  

Cheers

Raph, how could you NOT get into Rush, they bleed LOTR all over the place . . . that and Shakespeare . . . but I understand, I despise the Goos & DiFranco. . . *grin*

Why don't you do this?  Well, ok ya got me there, I have quite a bit I have to do myself, but I am serious, this is your calling (one of many).

Ok, this was NOT easy at all, after I posted those albums, I came up with about 20 more. I am sticking to the ones I posted but mann , then ya got Jimi's "Bold as Love" and Ziggy Stardust and Joni Mitchell and CSNY "So Far" and sheesh, like you, this was hard to do.  

A good post, made me search my archives and man, now I need me a new turntable.  *grin*  

scriiiiitcchhhh scrittcchh scriittcchhh

I just caught your translation up there, nice Raph, should save you a seat right inside those Golden Gates.  *laughing*

sudhir, great album. it's a perfect balance between the raw power of Master of Puppets and the more mainstream Black.i don't listen to it as often as i should though, i'm partial to Master of Puppets, i can still remember the first time I heard the title track.i never got into metal much because too many were focused on blinding speed and screaming guitars. metallica, like the van halen brothers, had that classical background, so they never lost site of the music.the guitar intro to one is amazing.


Sue, i know zep was guilty of it too, but rush was a little too heavy on the tolkien/fantasy images for my tastes. that and neil peart really started to pontificate in his lyrics those later years.

oh.don't get me started on the goos, the buffalo bills aaand the goo goo dolls..for shame buffalo.for shame

aww Raph, you mean you're not gonna buy that authentic City Hall CD where they played their hearts out in the pouring rain?  (btw I was NOT there)

St.Paddy's Day . . . I have that left to torture you with . . .



Fly by Night is still awesome . . .

fly by night is an awesome song, but like most of their albums (all, what, 52 or so of them??? mass production, maybe?) they don't sound all that dissimilar from any of the others. if you buy Chronicles, you can pretty much sum up the entirety of Rush's musical history.

which is odd, because i think the band's gone through about a gazillion (no hyperbole, i swear!) members and i don't even know if there are any original members left?

but fly by night is a really cool song... and no matter how mainstream it went, tom sawyer was way cool.

egowhores.com - really love yourself.

I have to disagree here, Chronicles is a good starting point TO Rush, but each one of their albums is a completely different experience.

That's like saying Purple Haze is all that Jimi is worth.

Chronicles is like the bubblegum of their career.

Fly by Night, the album is amazing.  The have not gone through many band members at all.  The only time they had other singers, percussionists, etc, was when Geddy left for one year and before Peart was there.  That was like '68 - '74.  

John Rutsey found Rush in '68, with Alex, and he left the band making Geddy the lead singer (TG) and he was also ill with diabetes.  Peart came on the scene in '74 and from that point, nothing has changed.

I do agree that their later stuff sucks.  I am talking the early Rush.

"Rush"  (1974) "Fly by Night" (1975)
"Caress of Steel" (1975) "2112" (1976)


"Hemispheres" 1978, "Farewell to Kings",
"Permanent Waves" 1980,
"Moving Pictures" 1981, "Signals" 1982,
"Grace Under Pressure" 1984

STOP.

The rest sucks.

Saw them four times and the last time they did the complete concert in 2112 without a break.  Was amazing.

Sorry, just a complete Rush fan here.  

If I were to suggest one album to listen to, especially for a writer, it is the second side ONLY of "Caress of Steel".  Pure raw vocals, harmonics and poetics.  

"2112" is a journey from one man's (re)birth and the finding of the electric guitar from a lost generation.  It is simply beautiful.

nah sue, got to agree with christopher. chronicles is about all i can listen to anymore. signals and 2112 were the only complete albums for me but even then, they've worn out for me.

as far as i know, peart was the only change the band made way back when.

It was not the only change:

It was started by Alex Zivojinovich and John Rutsey. In August of '68, the formal lineup was Jeff Jones on bass and lead vocals, John Rutsey on drums and backing vocals, and Alex Lifeson on guitars and backing vocals.

In September of '68, Jeff Jones (bassist/vocalist) was replaced by Gary Lee Weinrib

Neil joined the band on July 29, 1974.

You guys are entitled to your opinion, though.  They will never seem overplayed to me, just like Zep, then again, a lot of people tell me they are sick of hearing Zep too.

Me?  I will never tire of music. There is always something in the smallest song that makes you remember . . . I guess they mean so much to me because entire chunks of my life were spent around that music.  And ok, Chronicles is awesome, I just looked at the song list.  

*smile*

Thanks, this was fun.

no worries, i wasn't criticizing rush, just telling you why i could never get into them much. because our stations have canadian content codes, they were one of the bands the classic rock stations just drilled to meet those standards and thats what helped ruin it for me. as musicians, one of the most underrated/most talented bands ever.

certain bands i can drill and never get tired of too..zep, beatles, floyd( i just listened to division bell for the first time in awhile, i really should play it more often),distillers, clash and though my brother threatens to kill me everytime i pop it on Tool.

I know Raph, you know me, protective of my music like my child   *grin*  

I am a freak.

The funny thing is I had that concert T on the other day for the Division Bell with the two faces?  

I never saw them in concert . . . hmmm?  

One band, among many, I will regret never seeing (hearing) them play.  

Who are the distillers?  and I know what you mean about some music, listening to it, I have to listen to Jimi and Janis by myself,
not too many people care to hear them.

distillers: equal parts nirvana,rancid and a touch of hole.strain.serve.mmmm

if she were male this album would have been the next 'nevermind', but she's female and not the kind that sings bubble gum disposable crap..therefore it was mostly ignored
