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

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70s hard rock March 18, 2009
By P. Opus
Format:Audio CD
For me this is where the legend begins - Rush's first truly classic album. Before this they were sorting out their Led Zeppelin fixation and developing their own voice. They finally gelled with the addition of Neil Peart. The songs here are of higher quality than the earlier material, beginning to separate the band from the 70s hard rock pack. It wasn't until 2112 that they would emerge with their first truly distinctive album, and then hone their progressive rock sound down for their best work: Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Signals, and later Presto and Roll The Bones. Nonetheless this is more than just a historical document - it's also a fun listen and contains the kind of stuff that had me air-guitaring around my room in high school (and sometimes still does now). This is well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Rush Album April 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This would be the third time I've paid money for this music. I bought it as an LP about three years after the initial release, purchased it again as a CD, and now as a download having given the CD to a new Rush fan. By far one of my favorite Rush albums. The solid rock of the title track and "Anthem" to a balad like "Rivendell" make for a marvelous mix that shows the early abilities for a band now in it's fifth decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album September 5, 2008
By BK
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Direction March 31, 2009
By Todd7
Format:Audio CD
Fly by Night is Rush's second album, and first with Neil Peart. Peart would play a pivotal role in the direction and future success of the band in the years to follow. Fly by Night is a solid release, and the first 3 tracks (Anthem, Best I Can, Beneath Between & Behind) are hard rockers, and any one of them would've been suited for the first slot. These tracks are somewhat of a continuation of where their first album left off. The next track (By-Tor and the Snow Dog) is their first epic-length offering, and delivers well in that it displays all of the band's diverse talents in one song. Each member highlights their respective instruments well, and Geddy's voice is as powerful as ever. The title track (Fly by Night) is still pretty popular on the airwaves, and responsible for pretty good sales overall. "Making Memories" reminds me so much of the Zeppelin track, "Over the Hills and Far Away". "Rivendell" is Rush's most mellow song, and Geddy sings it with emotion. This song is Tolkien-inspired, and brings some balance to the album. The last track "In the End" starts with good acoustics, then fades into powerful Lifeson riffs and vintage Lee vocals that shriek. Overall, the album is a healthy mixture of rock and progressive lyrics that transition the band out of the first album plainness, and into the more philosophy-inspired intellectual lyrics that would become a Rush trademark in the years ahead. The ratings:
ANTHEM:9/10
BEST I CAN:8/10
BENEATH BETWEEN & BEHIND:9/10
BY-TOR AND THE SNOW DOG:10/10
FLY BY NIGHT:10/10
MAKING MEMORIES:9/10
RIVENDELL:7/10
IN THE END:8/10

This album is a must-have for any fan, as well as anyone who's just getting into Rush, because these are the roots for everything else the band subsequently released.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is A Great Album December 29, 2003
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greatest albums that Rush has ever made. This is also Neil Peart's first work with the band, and his drumming and lyrics are really awesome. My personal favorite is "By-Tor And The Snow Dog", which has excellent work from all three of the band members. I had heard bad things about the second to last track "Rivendell", but I actually liked it. I found it to be very peaceful and relaxing. Here are my overall ratings:
1. Anthem - 5/5
2. Best I can - 4/5
3. Beneath, Between, and Behind - 5/5
4. By-Tor And The Snow Dog - 5/5
5. Fly By Night - 5/5
6. Making Memories - 5/5
7. Rivendell - 3/5
8. In The End - 5/5
