I hate to regurgitate this one but it is an outstanding example of their talent and playing very much in step.

Also good for the Rush haters that can't tolerate Geddy's voice.
Scott

Killed it even beyond their prime.
Geddy's tone on that old Rick is phenomenal.

Exit... Stage Left is my all time favorite live album. Side 3 with Broon's Bane, The Trees and Xanadu is probably my favorite album side ever, including some of the killer Zep sides.

I don't always listen to RUSH, but when I do, so do my neighbors.


Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand, ignorance and prejudice and fear walk hand in hand


The moving Pictures tour.
I'm so glad that I got to see it.
Hands down one of the best concerts that I've ever seen.
Great memories.

Dude (Peart) had all kinds of whimsical, fantasy, dragon aged, extraterrestrial, and futuristic lyrics.
He was a big time reader from what I understand.

And the men who hold high places must be the ones who start to mold a new reality closer to the heart.

His voice is fine. It's his face that that bothers me. If he had any other job he would never get laid except by some Heffer. But because he can sing and play the bass he can basically get laid by most super models.

He is an animal on the bass. Watched him sing, play bass, and operate foot pedal/keyboard at the same time.

Totally understood man. Music is like speakers or women; everybody has different taste and no such thing as right or wrong.

His voice irked the shit out of me early on but the music pulled me in and kept me intrigued with all the rhythms and atypical beats and chord structures.


Then when I got older and paid more attention to the lyrics, it really blew me away.

Caress Of Steel was an interesting album lyrically.

From:
"Midway hawkers calling "Try your luck with me", merry-go-round wheezing the same old melody.
A thousand ten cent wonders, who could ask for more?
A pocketful of silver the key to heaven's door."



To this narration:

"As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travelers, men of Willow Dale, emerge from the forest shadow.
Fording the River Dawn, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of the Necromancer.
Even now the intensity of his dread power can be felt, weakening the body and saddening the heart.
Ultimately they will become empty, mindless spectres.
Stripped of will and soul.
Only a thirst for freedom gives them hunger for vengeance…"

Caress was also the first album where Neil Peart wrote the lyrics.

Coincidence?

Was also a huge fan of Ayn Rand and her philosophies. A Libertarian if ever I heard of one!

It's interesting that the stuff that made it commercially is the music they themselves don't like, and the ones I like most.
