~ THE PRIMARY COLORS OF RUSH ~,
This review is from: Different Stages (Audio CD)
You know it! Take it from this fan too, I saw them quite a few times back then and have heard every note on every release many times - THIS ROCKS! The version of each song is selected nicely and very strong, each disk is fantastic to me. None of the enthusiasm or talent is missing, you could even say they have just gotten better over the years. By the way, Alex Lifeson is one of the longest-standing and best arena-rock guitarists on the planet (have to leave room for other talented galactic string benders I may not be aware of). Neil & Geddy are still spoken of with that same regard as well. This bands impact is huge! Who said you slow down when you get older??? Just watch the Rush In Rio dvd if you need further proof ... the Vapor Trails material (the whole darned concert actually) on there shows a band just finding its higher self. They rocked Rio's world those two nights. The psychedelic connection has been strengthened lately too it appears, maybe a great new stage is about to present itself? One can hope. That Hammersmith disk from 78 is especially sweet, maybe my favorite single cd offered. I do have to say that this is a five-star release if there ever was one (in my opinion, I love it!). Enjoy on a BIG POWERFUL SYSTEM for full effect ~ ~ ~

Well! It looks like the apprentice is taking over! I will have to scrap my Rush review now-thanks to you! I think you could have done better though. Your last review was more intriguing (word wise). However, Rush IS mega-talented and, what can I say about Geddy's bass riffs? Pure genius! I will give you a vote nevertheless, because there was a concious effort to be unmetamorpho-like and that is a relief for they know your lectures won't be coming from me!
Nice to see you doing more reviews...

Just speaking from the heart - I guess your seer's inner-vision felt the Rush vibrations floating through the monadic channels ... but I put thought to deed in a more speedy fashion, sorry Metty (and hey, you griped about my last one too, you're gonna give me a complex)! Every song is a fine example (for a live version) generally. Maybe I'm getting a little less critical with age and wisdom. Rush's artistic message rings true to the bone with me. It all feels nicely settled and confident. There are far too many songs to talk about individually with this monster, anyway, like I said above, IT ALL ROCKS! What would be an improvement do you think? Go ahead and write yours!

My words are never meant as a put-down or designed to give you a complex. Metamorpho knows that you are VASTLY more capable and talented now that you have entered the Seer's circle! Though, sometimes you can get carried away (see latest review) and I have to think of ways to curtail your ambition. Ah so....However- in many ways even I,(yes! your reknown famous Seer), have been thinking of ways to economize and make the reviews shorter. It has become exhausting trying to touch on absolutely EVERYTHING that delights us and brings us joy with each review selection. And so - kudos for writing that is short and to the point.
Tear down the walls.....Metamorpho
