Editorial Reviews

Lyrics laced with sci-fi and fantasy and the precision drumming of Peart arrived on this early Rush gem ('75). Includes the storming opener Anthem ; the epic By-Tor and the Snow Dog ; the ballad In the End ; the classic title track, and more!

Biography

Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – is without question one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, equally famed for both its virtuoso musicianship and provocative songwriting.

Just last year, a career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature praised the band for its continuing artistic vitality, noting that “It’s true that Rush ... Read more in Amazon's Rush Store

This only being Rush's second album, they did a very good job with it.
B. Everett
In the pantheon of classic Rush releases like "2112" and "Moving Pictures," "Fly By Night" holds a special place as a crucial building block in the band's career.
A. Estes
Beneath,Between and Behind and Fly By Night are great rockers and By Tor and The Snow Dog is a great epic(the instrumental is the best part).

"Fly By Night" is certainly an album that helped define the future of Rush as a band, and that probably is a result of this being the first album to feature Neil Peart on drums. Although I became a fan of Rush in with the release of "Roll The Bones" and "Counterparts" in the late 80's/early 90's, picking up the back catalogue began.

It has been nearly 25 years since I first paid attention to this album, and mostly that was for the title track "Fly By Night" that is the lead-in track for Side 2 of the record. One of the things I always loved about classic records versus the digital age, artists and recording studios were forced to work in the confines of their medium. It also mean that you had to have a powerful track to lead off both Side 1 and Side 2 of the record, else you risked them skipping the side in its entirety. Thankfully, "Anthem" is just the thing this album needed to make the world stop and listen. Rolling into "Best I Can" and "Beneath, Between, & Behind" just help paint the picture. "By-Tor & The Snow Dog" is an epic recording at nearly nine minutes, and it rounds out the first side. Note that the digital download certificate included has an Extended Ending, which I assume might have originally been done to help eat up the remaining time on Side 1 - regardless, it's a solid full play for the first side of this record.

I honestly never paid much attention to the second side of the album past "Fly By Night" until I received this new remastered vinyl edition. I let it play straight through and found "Making Memories" to be an excellent set of riffs, and is perhaps the most mainstream 70's pop track on the whole album.

This review is specifically about the vinyl reissue of this album. There are plenty of reviews about the music on this album.

I have been purchasing many of the recent vinyl reissues from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Who, Metallica, Iron Maiden etc. This record may be the highest quality of all of them. (I was surprised, too!) It is completely noise-free and the each instrument and vocal is distinct, powerful, and complete. The staging is excellent and I could find absolutely no faults with this record.

If you like vinyl and Rush, you should buy this album now.

The new vinyl pressing (from QRP?) is fantastic. Not one click or crackle. I also got the blu-ray and can't wait to hear the 5.1 mix. The only other vinyl copy I had was with the Archives set. This blows that away.

Format: Audio CD
With the introduction of lyricist/drummer Neil Peart to the fold, this album takes a different turn than their debut.
Lyrically, this album takes a stand (thanks to Peart) and musically it stands on it's own, instead of relying on Zeppelin-like riffs (again, thanks to Peart).
The album sees Rush heading into a more progressive rock direction and away from the blues rock that influenced the first release. Plus, the music is SO much more powerful here. The drums are air-tight, the guitars are heavy and Geddy's bass licks are in overdrive.
The album kicks off with four downright rockers before By-Tor's mid section shows the band taking their first stab at extended musical compositions.
The other half of the album is a bit more relaxed...sometimes a bit TOO much, like with "Rivendell" arguably their worst song ever. Peart's mythological lyrics may have gone a bit too far with that one.
However, Fly By Night, Making Memories and In The End show the band making music and breaking ground that is totally their own...not borrowed from anyone else. This trend would continue profoundly with the albums to come...
This album is a MUST for any Rush fan. A definite highlight of their entire catalog.

Fly By Night is Rush's second album and marks the departure of drummer John Rutsey and the beginning of current drummer Neil Peart's time with the band. There is a lot to find on this album from start to finish; Rush's first epic (By-Tor & the Snow Dog), the summary of Neil Peart's outlook on life and the height of his Ayn Rand influence (Anthem), and a song where no percussion is found anywhere but Geddy Lee's voice along with Alex Lifeson's acoustic guitar work together to create a truly beautiful and magical sound (Rivendell).
From the beginning of the album Rush makes listeners take notice with their explosive sound. Lifeson uses a combination of powerful chords, amazing solos, and soft acoustic accompaniment throughout the album. Geddy Lee displays his talent on the bass guitar and microphone, leaving the synthesizers for a later day. And while it would be a fallacy to call this album the height of Neil Peart's talent, his skills as a percussionist can be highlighted by this album just as well as by citing any of the band's later works.
Everything about this album is just plain great. Great music, great lyrics...even the track arrangement makes one think about the musical genius that is Rush. At this time the band had nowhere to go but up; and they knew it. With founding member Alex Lifeson, seasoned bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee, and the band's newest member, Neil Peart, this album goes a long way to silence any doubt as to why Rush is the legendary act they have become.
I'm not a professional review writer (obviously) so I'm just writing this as a tribute to Rush. Fly By Night is one of their best albums, and I hope that current Rush fans and new listeners alike will gain something from my opinions and perspective. That's the only reason I'm writing this.
