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

4.0 out of 5 stars Rush finds their way. March 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Roll the Bones", to my ears, represents the first time in a long time that all the elements of the band are coming together-- after experimenting with softer sounds and cleaner tones on the last couple records, and synth-driven rock before that, Rush seems to have found a good balance with "Roll the Bones". With Lee's confident vocal delivery supported by unparallel musicianship, great songs, great lyrics, and (finally!) great arrangements, Rush has turned out an album as good as the work they'd done ten years beforehand.

A trend with Rush albums is that they seem to be putting the songs I enjoy the most right up at the front of the album, "Dreamline", opening this one, is no exception-- what a great song, churning verses breaking into a driving chorus, blazing guitar solo, its a song born to be listened to rolling down the highway (likely a bit too fast at that...). The band shifts gears into the rolling grooves of "Bravado", a great minor key ballad, clearly showing how much better they'd gotten at this form than on "Presto". Following this up is one of the more interesting cuts on any Rush album, the title track, "Roll the Bones". Funky rhythms, synth hits, interspersed acoustic guitars and a bizarre rap make this one totally unique in the Rush catalog. Its a lot of fun-- this is an element of the band that started to emerge at this point, the fact they COULD have fun, but beyond that, its a great piece, stellar vocals, and a compulsively funky bassline accentuated by great playing from Lifeson and Peart.

So this was a pretty golden start, the album does kind of drift after this-- similar to the Rush albums of old, none of the material is really bad, it just doesn't grab you-- "Face Up", "Where's My Thing?

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush's Third Incarnation January 5, 2005
By Samhot
Format:Audio CD
This album seems to be slagged off by many people and I don't really understand why. Rush has only done what many other true artists have done, which is grow and evolve. On here Rush returns to progressive hard rock with less synths, and the songs are mostly around the 5 minute mark. Every track on here is great, but my personal favorite is "Heresy", featuring ethereal vocal overdubs and soundscapes which is trademark Rush at their finest. Also worth checking out: "Where's My Thing", Rush returning to instrumentals. Not as flashy as YYZ or La Villa, but still great and refreshing to hear. The title track, which reminds me of something John Lennon could have written for some reason. "The Big Wheel", and "Ghost of A Chance" also, but everything on here is excellent as I've said earlier.

I can't find much, if anything, wrong with this album. It's just a prime example of a band that's grown and evolved and I'm personally pleased with the results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey, judge Rush one album at a time January 30, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I am getting tired of people rating recent Rush albums based on their past works. Without question, the past albums such as Hemispheres and Moving Pictures were fantastic, but my goodness, GET OVER THEM when reviewing more recent Rush efforts! No band that I know of spans the generations more effectively than Rush, so why hold them to their past? That said, Roll the Bones represents yet another groundbreaking effort by the group. That's why they appeal to so many; always willing to try something different, expanding their own musical talents while smirking at the mainstream music buerocracy. . . . a true indication of a band still in their prime; confident, aware, and powerful. The title tune, Roll the Bones, is wonderful and, in my opinion, cautiously happy -- saying "Live, dammit!" and not waste time wondering why we're here or how we got here. More than previously, this album seems to communicate 'follow your dreams,' and the band is doing JUST THAT. Can you imagine what we'd get if the guys themselves decided, "Well you know, 'Where's My Thing' is good, but its just not The Necromancer, so lets scrap it."? So appreciate them for now while they're still with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars album with a great sound May 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am really getting tired of all these so called Rush fans knocking the late eighties/early nineties albums (everything from Power Windows through Roll the Bones), criticizing the music for not being "real Rush" or for having too much synthesizer. First of all, this music is as much Rush as is Hemispheres, 2112, and, oooooo dare I say it, Moving Pictures. Second of all, these people fear the synthesizer as if it were the bain of music. Music is about sound, beat, etc. The instrument is merely that, an instrument to acheiving this sound. If it sounds good, it is good, but a lot of these people would not even give Jesus Christ a chance if he came doen playing anything other than a guitar or drums. These are the same people who 50 years ago would have criticized any musician using electric guitars, faulting them for not sticking with acoustic. These people would rather listen to remixes of Moving Pictures rather than something new and, God forbid, different.
This is a great album. Better than some of the previous ones, worse than others, but nonetheless a great Rush album. It has a distinct sound, dark, like Signals and Grace Under Pressure, but smoother and more melodic. The songs definitely set a mood. The standout "hits" (Roll the Bones, Dreamline, Ghost of a Chance) will grab you first, but given enough time, you'll like every song. This is an album that grows on you and, for me at least, it tends to be the albums that grow on you slowly that end up lasting the longest (in my music rotation) and being the best.
