Signals takes a step back in the overall sound and mixing.  They wanted to bring the keys up and the guitars back a bit, but both end up sounding too muffled at times.  I think it sounds good overall nevertheless - the bottom end sounds tremendous, for example - but it could have sounded better.  Notice how much better both the guitars and keys sound on Grace Under Pressure, which is stylistically pretty similar.

Awesome! My list would include AFTK and La Villa though.
I was thinking the same thing, but I think I read somewhere they tried to bring out AFTK for the S&A tour, but they felt it didn't sound very good tuned down a half or whole step for Geddy.  DEN, that setlist is pretty awesome, but for realism's sake, Anthem should be taken out.

Yes, but dream setlists aren't supposed to be realistic.

Okay, so I've been listening to Rush now almost constantly for about two weeks (I'm a new fan, better late than never).

So far I've come to these conclusions:

- I'm focusing on their 80s stuff first, I think it's an "easier" way in to their material. Then I can ease my way into their 70s prog stuff. Right/wrong?
- After hearing so much praise over Moving Pictures I can only agree; it's a hell of an album, and my favourite so far. Only Witch Hunt and Vital Signs are yet to click for me.
- Signals, Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows gets a lot of spins too. Not so much their later albums yet, aside from Counterparts.
- I thought I would have a hard time with their 80s synth sound (I'm pretty allergic to that sound in general), but I've gotten kind of used to it by now.
- Songs that I've listened to the most so far are: Marathon, The Camera Eye, Limelight, Red Barchetta, Afterimage, Leave That Thing Alone, and recently Xanadu.
- I've watched 'Exit... Stage Left', 'A Show Of Hands', 'Snakes & Arrows Live', and 'Beyond The Lighted Stage', they are truly a great live band. And funny guys  ;D

Now to continue on my journey  :P

I tried to listen to Exit... Stage Left again yesterday, and couldn't do it.  Oh, the setlist is fine, the performances are fine; it's the sound.  Something weird about the mix or production or something.  It sounds all flat on top, but turning up the treble doesn't help.  It's a live album but even though you can hear the audience, it still doesn't sound "live".  It's hard to describe.

I remember getting that one on vinyl when it was first released, and I didn't like the sound then, either.  I looked in the liner notes and it said that this was their first-ever digitally recorded, digitally produced album (or something similar - it's been a long time).  I thought Okay, so apparently digital production sucks.   Honestly, I don't know if I've heard anything since then to change my mind.

AFTK has more filler than S&A, I feel. Apart from Xanadu and Cygnus, nothing really wowed me

I listened through Signals today and I have to say that Chemistry is growing more on me. An overlooked track for sure
It you lived it when it happened you might feel different. I don't dislike Snakes. Maybe calling half the album filler was a little harsh. Its just got a few forgettable tracks for me personally.

Orbert, I know what you mean in regards to ESL.  Given the set list, it should easily be my favorite Rush live record, but, yeah, it just sounds kind of flat at times.

A new video interview with bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee of the Canadian rock trio RUSH conducted by Brazil's TV UOL can be viewed below. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.

On the next RUSH studio album:

Geddy: "The new album is still in production. We've recorded two songs so far, one of them called 'Caravan' and the other one called 'Brought Up To Believe' ['BU2B']. That's the beginning two songs of a whole kind of a concept album called 'Clockwork Angels'. We have about four other songs... five songs written, but not recorded yet. And we still have a couple of more songs that we want to write and then put the whole thing together. So I don't think the album will be ready for about a year."

On whether there will be a new DVD/CD documenting the current tour:

Geddy: "We record every night. We don't film every night but we have lots of cameras around. So invariably by the time this [tour] is finished we'll put together some sort of live representation of it. But what form that will take I'm not sure yet."

On the recent award-winning film "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage":

Geddy: "It's a weird experience to watch that for me. First of all, I don't like to watch myself talking about myself; it's strange [and] not normal. But I was very complimented to hear the nice things that the other musicians had to say. And I was very relieved that the people that made the film had a good sense of humor, and that the sense of humor that we have in the band came through in that film. So that made me happy. And so although it's not my favorite thing to do to watch a movie about us I'm glad that so many people seem to enjoy it."

Not to randomly change topics, but what do you guys think of Lifeson and Lee's respective solo albums, Victor and My Favorite Headache?

Personally, neither are great, but both are good.  I don't listen to either nearly as much as I do most Rush albums, but both still have select tracks I dig a lot.  "At the End" and "Strip and Go Naked" are both great songs from the Lifeson album, and most of the songs on Geddy's record are good, with my favorites probably being "Present Tense" and "Slipping."

I like Geddy's better but Alex gets a big thumbs up for trying something very different than the classic Rush sound.

My faves on Victor are Start Today & Shut Up, Shutin' Up(Very Zappa like)

On MFH they are Slipping & Still.

I love Geds solo effort, and I love the fact it doesn't resemble a Rush album at all. That's what makes it extra cool for me, and I love the songs.

Yeah, Victor is pretty out there.  I'm not sure what I was expecting from an Alex solo album, but this wasn't it.  I played it a few times, don't feel the need to revisit it.

I still haven't checked out My Favorite Headache.  One of these days, I'm sure.

Zydar, that is great to hear!  Hope your journey continues to go well. :hat

I must say thanks to you for your Top 50 list you compiled a while ago, it has given me some info about quite a few songs. Although it was mostly personal opinions about them and not facts, they have nonetheless been a guide of some sorts. It's exactly what I want from these kinds of lists, especially if you're new to a band.

It has helped me on my way :tup

My favorite song from Victor is "Promise."  Some of the other tracks are good too, but some are just plain strange.

I like the title track on MFH the most.

That is very nice to hear.  That is one of the main reasons why I started the top 50 thread in the first place, to try and get various bands new fans. :)

Yep, Alex's solo album definitely veers quite a bit from the Rush sound, unlike Geddy's, which sounds a lot like a Rush record more often than not, at least in the songwriting and melodies.

Geddy has admitted in the past over the years that the "liveness" was drained out of it.

Here's a quote from 2004 (Contents Under Pressure)

There is a lot of meddling with the tapes and trying to make sure we had the best performances. We alsomade a conscious effort to pull down the audience a bit and emphasize the music. In the end, I think were recorded a fairly sterile live record."





RE: My Favorite Headache/Victor

I love both but for different reasons.

Certainly Geddy's is more accessible, but I love the way Victor comes across too.
Although I'm not a fan of Edwin, I do understand the role he played and he does help bring it all together. I just adore Alex's guitar work on this record. He could have flipped the gunslinger switch and everyone probably would have been happy, but I think it shows how amazing a guitar player he is.

After Geddy's album came out, I was really hoping for a short "evening with Alex and Geddy revue tour" where we'd get to hear songs from each album and maybe some acoustic stuff. Pretty wild imagination I have.

I'd love to hear what Victor II might sound like.



That Caravan/TSN thing was cool. Ties together two loves of mine and that is never a bad thing.

Okay, so I wasn't imagining things.  I really want to like ESL -- I want to love it, but... it won't hug back.  It's kinda the opposite of All the World's a Stage, which is so raw and full of energy.  They tried to pull back on that for this one, and went a little too far.

For the first time, I am truly disgusted with the Rush fan in general. Not you guys, the people are the Rush boards. I am tired of defending these elitist snobs!
One guy starts a thread about how much he hates DT based on the first thing he finally heard from them. Are you ready... A fucking youtube clip of them playing a Rush cover! He then goes on to say he now understands why people don't like them, cause it sucked so bad! He hated the singer, blah blah, blah.
I personally don't like James singing Rush either but what a fool this dude is.

This jackass has never heard one single Dream Theater song yet he now knows why they suck! What a complete dick! I can't take it. :facepalm:

For the first time, I am truly disgusted with the Rush fan in general. Not you guys, the people are the Rush boards. I am tired of defending these elitist snobs!
One guy starts a thread about how much he hates DT based on the first thing he finally heard from them. Are you ready... A fucking youtube clip of them playing a Rush cover! He then goes on to say he now understands why people don't like them, cause it sucked so bad! He hated the singer, blah blah, blah.
I personally don't like James singing Rush either but what a fool this dude is.

This jackass has never heard one single Dream Theater song yet he now knows why they suck! What a complete dick! I can't take it. :facepalm:

Ok, I need to take a deep breath. >:(

tick, I read the thread and admire the way you defended DT.  Props to you.    :hat
