This place needs more Canada.

Sometimes these guys really click with me. Been rocking their prog and eighties era pretty hard lately.

I was at that Toronto show! What a great time. I had to go alone because no one wanted to go with me. Fuck that, I made some cool prog buds there. I’m off to bed but I just wanted to check in and show my support for this wonderful thread and greatest band ever. I’ll talk more about how HEMISPHERES is the greatest album to ever exist.

2112 was my first introduction to Rush. I then loved all things Rush. Wrote the Rush logo all over my book covers. Learned the licks. Man...I really liked them.

I love Rush! Cygnus is one of the best jams of all time, as are many, many other Rush songs :rock:

American exceptionalism is correctly rooted in hating Rush.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.

You are correct, hating Rush and American exceptionalism are equally foolish ideologies

What about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?

Let us turn to famed Rock and Roll Naturalist Bubble Wrap Attenborough to see what he has to say about Rush.

NSFW: show
Much like contemporaries AC/DC, Rush are most famous for their exotic otherness in an era of bland conformity* -- they not only let their drummer have opinions, but write entire sets of lyrics -- and habit for filling albums with just one or two hits amidst a cesspool of tweedly nonsense.

Whereas the frosty bogans were content to repeat the same four chords to make all of their songs sound exactly the same, their Canadian Counterparts in Cadance managed the same feat using every chord, scale, progression, and tappity twickity mow screedly kapow known to Western Music.

Sadly the exact alchemical processes used to craft a vast diaspora of ingredients into LP after LP of identical-sounding Nanaimo bars has been lost to time, but historians suspect that the true magic lies dormant in the wilderness of Ontario, waiting to be resurrected alongside the original audio mix of Vapour Trails, notable for being the only Rush-related artifact that could ever rile Rush fans into feeling anything remotely resembling emotion.

2112, All the World's a Stage, Farewell to Kings, and Hemispheres all trip my trigger. :rock:

glad Rush existed, being a unique bunch of fellas, but Working Man is the only song I don't change the station on.

also Geddy is a MEGA baseball fan which is just sad.
