Rush - A Farewell to Kings

5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 29 14:09
Between 1976 and 1981 Rush released what were arguably their finest recordings. Starting with "2112" and ending with "Moving Pictures", Rush released music that was quite simply untouchable. The quality of the musicianship has to be heard to be believed and it was quite obvious that the group were giving everything in an attempt to create something special. Choosing the best of these albums is a h... read more

"16th March Further proof that Rush are expert storytellers. This album gives us more of their sonic power and tender beauty, which goes for both their lyrics and music. An album that juxtaposes serene qualities with the hard edged and exploratory, it serves as a reminder of the talent the trio possess.

Choosing the best of these albums is a hard task, but I choose "A Farewell To Kings". Intricate solos and amazing inventiveness that sound as fresh as ever 25 years on. The album starts off with the beautifully crafted title track, that shows what an underrated guitar talent Alex Lifeson is. Beginning with classical guitar, then progressing into a solid piece of trademark Rush, complete with thumping, Geddy Lee intricate bass lines and ” read more
