These are really good songs.
Powerful and to the point.
I do not get you people at all.

Fischman says:
Not only is Turn the Page "Powerful and to the point," it also contains some of Geddy's most innovative and interesting bass work.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 20, 2012 8:21:55 AM PDT
Perfectly recorded too. The band is much tighter than on the first two albums. At least I get Fischman.

in case not everyone noticed, there is a part 2 Rush song game posted to play too...
please come on and join that one as well!!

Lauren says:
I get the impression that some are just voting against Power Windows and Hold Your Fire without considering individual songs. "Turn the Page" is one of the better tracks off HYF and doesn't deserve to vanish before half the dreck from the first album. "Lock and Key", on the other hand, just isn't one of my favorites - it's one of the few tracks where I just don't like Geddy's vocal approach.

Posted on Sep 20, 2012 9:08:08 AM PDT
sorry lauren, hold your fire is their only album that i am not that huge of a fan of...and i am a huge fan of their first album, so i can't be voting against that yet...i'd take their debut album over 2112 any day...yeah, i said it, lol !.....with most bands, i'm the opposite of most of their fans, i like the more "deep cuts" and not what is more popular most of the time

Posted on Sep 20, 2012 9:13:45 AM PDT
Power Windows is my least favorite Rush album. I do not like any of it and never have. I listened to Rush, Caress of Steel and Fly By Night over the weekend. I still like these albums as much as I ever did. There are a few bad songs but overall, still great. I am not dismissing any of the songs from PW or Hold Your Fire without consideration first. I just don't like these songs. Just my opinion...

Posted on Sep 20, 2012 9:31:40 AM PDT
Fischman says:
Hold Your Fire suffers from being the most keyboard oriented Rush album and many "traditional" Rush fans are more oriented toward heavy guitar.

For me, the irony is that I'm a huge guitar fan/synthesizer dismisser, yet I find Hold Your Fire to be one of my favorites. The songs themselves are fantastic--you can really see the evolution of Neil's philosophy, the production and mix is, IMO, pure and flawless, and despite not being full of the instrumental virtuosity that characterizes most Rush albums, the keyboard-happy Geddy Lee does some great bass work on this album, even by his vaery high standards.

I had an initial dislike for Signals when it came out, mostly due to the keyboard-heavy sound. However, over the years, I overcame this bias and found Signals to be an outstanding release. So, by the time Hold Your Fire came out, I was ready and open-eared to hear the wonderful music it contained and no such transitional period was necessary.

That's what makes Rush such a fantastic group--they can do so much--their breadth and ability to achieve across that breadth, is unmatched. 30+ years and no two albums sound alike, yet all are of very high merit, even if each one does not reach each and every fan (even I could generally live without Presto and Counterparts).

Animal and I are considering running the two parallel games until we reach the top 30 and then merging the two. That way we can accommodate fans of all phases of Rush without making either game unwieldy. Any thoughts on this?

Lew Archer says:
I don't think the 1st album is "dreck", but that's the rub. The band from 1972 is not the same band from 1985; or at least not the SOUND.

I think those last three albums should be on the other thread. They're just not going to get the appreciation that they could over here.

B. rogers says:
"Signals" is getting ripped a new one in this game but I think it is one of their very best. It's always been a "grower" album if there ever was one. After *this* album I think that they became increasingly hit-and-miss. But this album was really sophisticated hard rock that shows a band at the height of their creative powers.

Unless you want to run into the same problems we're having now, I'd say absolutely not.

But there's no reason why there couldn't be a THIRD thread that does this, while leaving the other two to finish up on there own.

Concur completely (as noted in my previous post). Signals didn't hit me at first, but it's one that has had real staying power--not a bad cut to be found and highly creative despite the radical departure in sound.
