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 The Last Incarnation December 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The Sector Box sets are the latest and supposedly greatest reissue for what must be one of Mercury Records' most profitable back catalogs - that of Rush, the Canadian trio many of us consider to be one of rock's greatest bands ever. Featuring the last Terry Brown produced album (Signals) in a 5.1 channel mix, Sector 3 provides us with several of the band's greatest achievements, notably Signals itself and 1984's dark and spare Grace Under Pressure. This box also features the fresh, appealing, melodically inventive, though occasionally gimmicky Power Windows and Hold Your Fire, which represents the zenith of the band's increasing use of keyboard and synthesizers to provide color and effect.

Most hard-core Rush fans find a considerable amount to disagree over when it comes to 80's Rush - many believe it to be too gimmicky, too keyboard intensive, they lament that Alex was essentially pieced out of many songs and, in some cases, whole albums (though that is really a stretch, especially when applied to Signals), and that the band fell victim to a penchant for keyboard technology and the fashion of the times (this was the 80's, after all...) I grew up during this time (junior high-senior high) and bought all of these albums on vinyl upon their release, so I can't really hate them. After 25 years, though, I can start to be more objective about them. Some are great, even more so than when they were released - such as Signals and GUP. Power Windows remains a strong album lyrically, but some of its effects and "moments" are growing less appealing with the passage of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars SIGNALS 5.1 November 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Admittedly, I not only haven't sessioned the whole set yet, but I only listened to the 5.1's from each set and in fact am hearing the Signals dvd audio as I write this. I don't know if anyone else has noticed yet, but they have in most cases used totally different vocal takes, some different instrumental tracks, and in the case of The Weapon, a completely different take altogether - note the extra measures before the choruses. I've noticed alternate takes and extra tracks on other 5.1 remixes I own, they even used a different vocal take for Vital Signs on the Moving Pictures blu ray - I can see how the mixer can be tempted by the available options. But this is like an alternate version of the album, and I for one am pretty stoked about it. So any Rush freaks on the fence, just know that not only are the 5.1's superb sounding, but you'll have what amounts to a fresh angle on the Signals experience. Check out the other reviews for opinions on the sound quality of the regular cds - like I say, I haven't gotten around to those yet, and I think the packaging is just fine. But I got excited about the Signals thing, and I wanted to share.

By the way, noticed some others had problems with the Farewell to Kings dvd audio. Mine plays fine, just using a plain old Pioneer DV610AV dvd audio/sacd player.

Rush are a fine young band, and I predict big things for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Happy With These Remasters May 13, 2012
By Bill E.
Format:Audio CD
I've owned Sectors 3 for about 5 months. I debated whether or not if I should pick it up. I read reviews on Amazon and elsewhere and read good and bad things (extremely good and extremely bad). After listening to these discs numerous times I had to throw my "2 cents" in.

First I want to mention I am a Rush fan... have been since Moving Pictures. I own all of their albums up until Hold Your Fire on vinyl, and since 2010 I buy all my music on vinyl, but I'm not what you would call an "audiophile". But I do appreciate good sound. I can hear the difference in the way music has been mastered over the last 10 years or so. Good examples of this? Most notably Vapor Trails (way too loud and distorted). Others would be Stay Positive by The Hold Steady and Accelerate by R.E.M. With that said I can't sit here and honestly say all of modern music is missing that dynamic range that used to exist... not to my ears anyway. A lot of today's music still sounds good to me. I guess I can appreciate when something is mastered very well (Counselors Of the Lonely by The Raconteurs) or when something's on the opposite end of the spectrum(the previously mentioned albums). But a majority of what I buy sounds fine to me.

So how do these remasters sound to a long-time Rush fan? Good! Actually, I truly believe these sound better than the 97 remasters. The 97 remasters sounded fine to me - yes, they were louder than the originals but I thought they give the albums more punch without losing clarity. These new remasters don't necessarily sound louder than the remasters, but they do seem to sound crisper than any of the other CD's I've owned previously. Below is my disc-by-disc review -

* Signals - one of the best sounding remasters of this particular box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars And last but not least !!! November 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
So I finally finished listening to the rest of the sectors, and what makes me smile the most of this set from the other? ok , lets go back to the original cd releases and the first remastered set ,and th Japanese SHM-CD version. Out of all those three type of releases the worst sounding of all RUSH on Cd was SIGNALS ! the original release sounded so muffled it wasn't even funny, then the remasters of course sounded like loud muffled, and the SHM version was not much better, So of course I put on this version of Signals and the verdict "HOLY FRAK"! I never heard Signals sound SOOOOOO Amazing before, It was absolutly fantastic and mind blowing, justice has been served, as for the rest , they are great too,although I can't speak too much for POWER WINDOWS or HOLD YOUR FIRE, but that problem does not lie in the remastering,it's the fact that both album were 80% keyboards and synths like most 80's music was then, which drowns out any instument, however I can hear Geddy's Bass much more clearer this time, as well as Alex's guitar. So big glorious thank you to Universal/Mercury/Anthem,and everyone that was in charge of making these releases come to life, finally RUSH cd's heard as they were meant to be heard, BEAUTIFULLY!

Nice box, with nice packaging but I would prefer to have individual booklets and inner sleeves in the individual discs.
