A recent thread slams the rock band, Rush. Of course, different strokes for different folks. However, I question the age, experience, and exposure of the OP to world events.
True, the recent CDs are hurting their image more than helping. And, the band has suffered through tragedy in these latter years. Personally, I feel they should stop producing, but maybe their contract with their record label forces them to pump out albums like a puppy mill? I don’t know…
But, IMHO, the early albums a typical of a band trying to find their unique niche. Then, in the middle years, they hit paydirt with CDs excellent all the way around with profound lyrics, music, and overall instrumental performance -including Peart’s drumming. Anyone who appreciates and respects the art of drumming cannot deny Peart’s talents…and lyric-writing abilities. (I’d like to know who rivals Peart’s abilities?) :dubious:
I think the OP is just lacking a full knowledge of classic rock. They are NOT your typical weenie '80’s band. Shame on you! Now, go wash your mouth out with soap!
- Jinx quite :mad:
