Life changes occur every 7 years. By age fourteen, my life was under assault. I was in a new city and a new school. High school was intimidating, and my study skills were lousy. On top of that, my parents had split up, puberty was raging, and I was unprepared to deal with women, family, school, fights, adults, and authority. I was getting into small-scale troubles like shoplifting. My self-esteem was shot, exacerbated by pimples and the standard teasing. It was 1982.
Into this social and personal morass came "Tom Sawyer", the first rock single I ever paid attention to and the most important. Being black, I was used to R&B/soul/funk. Now I realize that the uninformed, uninitiated listener can find much about Rush to criticize, but to me, "Tom Sawyer" was a clarion call and a rallying cry. By the 3rd time I heard it on the radio, I had to buy the album (remember those?). When I was able to collect enough money (about $8.00 - remember that?), I went to the record store and was transfixed by the cool looking cover. I didn't get the depth of the cover concept - the "moving pictures" inside joke, but the surface appealed. Notice the gothic architecture, the recutrring theme of 3, the Clockwork Orange-looking men moving pictures, the burning witch, the black/red satanic lettering, and the 'bad seed-looking' little girls with their parents? Rush were the master manipulators here - luring teens in to ponder what evil lurks underneath, while affirming the teen desire to rebel, to piss off your folks, thereby reclaiming your desire for power. Then you turn it around and it's literally and figuratively the reverse - no evil intents, just a film shoot - a motion pic shoot. It's still one of the all-time greatest album covers for me.

It's a testament to the talent of this trio that one of their most accomplished releases musically and lyrically is _also_ one of their most accessible.

Lots of times, when musicians' musicians get together to record an album of 'prog rock', the results are interesting to their fellow musicians but leave the average listener in the dust.

The three members of Rush (Geddy Lee, vocals and bass; Alex Lifeson, guitars; Neil Peart, percussion and lyrics) don't work that way. They _are_ musicians' musicians (and they don't achieve their appeal by dumbing anything down), but they never retreat into technodazzle and flashy obscurantism; their music is just (or almost) as intelligible and enjoyable to a listener who wouldn't know 7/4 time if it bit him on the behind. (Even Geddy Lee's solo release _My Favorite Headache_, which you might expect to be filled with all sorts of at-last-a-chance-to-show-off bass theatrics, is on the contrary a fine collection of really good _songs_.)

Likewise, Peart's lyrics are intelligent and thoughtful, but they never talk down to us listeners or hide from us in a private, hipper-than-thou symbolic language. They're well-lit, with the clarity of sharp lights and shadows -- 'deep' without being hard to follow.

_Moving Pictures_ gets my vote as the CD to start with if you want to introduce yourself to this great band. Mind you, that's not because I share the common opinion that they jumped the shark in the mid-1980s; I may be alone in the world in thinking that these guys have never released a bad album, but that is in fact what I think.

No, the reason I name this album as the place to begin is that its quality is stratospheric even for Rush.

After buying Moving Pictures multiple times, one has to wonder when enough is enough and the sound just can't be improved any more. Unfortunately for your wallet that is not the case this time, the DVD-Audio is absolutely outstanding and hearing these songs in 5.1 definitely gives them new life. For the most part the surround is subtle (aside from obvious moments like the car in Red Barchetta, and yes, the triangle intro to YYZ does go through some speaker acrobatics) while still providing clarity, most of which can be heard in the clarity of every tom and cymbal Neil hits (and there's a lot of them!)

As for the whole complete package, the set comes with two discs, one being a CD for on the go listening, that for my money differs very little from the Remastered CD released years ago, with maybe slightly more clarity. The DVD has the album is Surround Sound and Stereo options, and as for extras there's a set of three extremely cheesy music videos (Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Vital Signs) and a small picture gallery that's interesting for around seven seconds. The set also comes in fancy cardboard case and includes a nice beefy booklet with an essay from David Fricke, a bunch of very cool pictures, and (now readable sized!) lyrics.

All in all if you have the album and are fine with it as is, there's no reason to spring for this set, most will likely not care about the improvement of sound quality. However, if you are am audiophile, enjoy DVD-Audio, or are interested in the idea, I can't recommend this set enough.

And let's face it, if you're a massive Rush fan, the type that has already seen them on the Time Machine Tour and listen to 2112 on a Saturday night at home instead of going out, you already were going to buy this, even just to hear Neil Peart's toms fly around you in Witch Hunt. And you'll love every minute of it.
