Review by Conor Fynes
1 stars 'Entre Nous' - Rush (Single)

'Permanent Waves' is a great Rush album, but I've always found it's been marred by a single song. No, it's certainly not the indomitable 'Jacob's Latter' or 'Natural Sciences.' 'Entres Nous' wasn't a 'terrible' song by any measure, it just didn't get any reaction out of me, and it made a lot of trouble trying to remember any of the hooks or anything in it. It should be a b-side, if anything. There was plenty on 'Permanent Waves' that was perfect radio material! 'The Spirit Of Radio' for example is a crowd favourite, as well as 'Freewill.'

At this point I am really wanting to mark this one star.

But oh, we have 'Different Strings' as a b-side to a b-side. 'Different Strings' is a beautiful song, with one of the most beautiful choruses I've ever listened to in a song. It's not often piano is heard in a Rush song, and it works with Geddy's voice perfectly. While having 'Different Strings' as a part as this product makes me want to give this two stars; I'm afraid I can't due to the sheer hypocrisy and inane placement. 'Different Strings' should not be dubbed a poor b-side for a mediocre song.

What a poor choice of single... This is upsetting.

2 stars "Permanent Waves" was a 1980 triumph for Rush, one of the more celebrated 80s Rush albums. This single was an oddity as the songs were certainly not the best the album had to offer. Nevertheless, it is a rare find, and worth the effort if it appears on your album hunting quest.

It was a new style of Rush in comparison to previous efforts but it is surprisingly mainstream yet still keeping the aspects of prog. 'Entre Nous' has the Alex Lifeson guitar riff that is familiar as soon as it starts and chugs along nicely. 'Different Strings' is marginally better with some nice lead work and great percussion figures. Overall this is one for collectors, and difficult to locate so if you see it, snap it up without hesitation.
