5 stars Opinions that Rush's Moving Pictures LP was a sellout hold little water. While songs like Tom Sawyer and Limelight are undisputably lighter and more welcoming than those included on A Farewell To Kings or Hemispheres they certainly keep a firm grip on Rush's status as a Progressive Rock act of the highest order. The attention to detail and mindblowing songwriting never ceases from the instantly recognisable synth chord opening of Tom Sawyer to the dying seconds of the technical Reggae-Prog number Vital Signs. Geddy Lee's lush keyboard sounds are certainly a major contribution to the huge progress from Permanent Waves, never expressed better than on the moody slither of Witch Hunt or the emotionally moving urban perspective given in The Camera Eye. For a band with such a sprawling and varied catalogue Moving Pictures is an album embraced by the majority of Rush's demanding fanbase, and as if further evidence of the quality herein was required the likes of Tom Sawyer, YYZ, Limelight and Red Barchetta are all well-established concert staples.
