4 stars Great, but not very moving

Rush made many good and even excellent albums in the 70's and early 80's, but only Hemispheres reaches masterpiece status in my eyes. Moving Pictures was the band's last great album and is, in my opinion, better than Permanent Waves. This album is very strong and features some really amazing instrumental work outs as well as several absolute Rush classics. The material is melodically very strong and all the songs are memorable. In some ways this album shows a more mature Rush and it is one of the best albums of their long career along with Hemispheres, A Farewell To Kings and 2112.

However, I feel that something is missing. The acoustic side of Rush is absent on Moving Pictures. There are no songs like The Trees, Closer To The Heart, Cinderella Man, Different Strings, Rivendell etc. - they never slow down the tempo. This is a loss that makes Moving Pictures a bit less varied and less appealing than it otherwise might have been. Still a great album though and definitely an excellent addition to your Prog collection.

Highly recommended!
