Review by Conor Fynes
1 stars 'Time Stand Still: The Collection' - Rush (Compilation)

Uhh... why was it necessary to make yet another compilation?

I'm sorry, but even if I was going to buy a compilation of one of my favourite bands, it wouldn't be this at all. Because disregarding some artwork that looks like it was made in Photoshop in under an hour, there is nothing here that you wouldnt be able to hear on another compilation, let alone the vastly superior studio releases these songs come from.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I strongly believe that most (if not all) of these songs can be found on previous collections such as 'Chronicle;' and even that collection has more songs to show the band's more inventive side.

The songs themselves are indeed very good, but it doesn't take alot of prowess to do something like this. I could make a Rush playlist on my computer anyday.

1 stars It's wonderful to see a new album by Rush before the onslaught when the brand new album arrives later this year with new material, but why release a compilation like this? Who is the target audience... New Rush fans, if any exist? Surely they would be better advised to grab hold of 2 CD packages that sowcase more material such as "Rush Gold" or "Chronicle" but this is a condensed Rush comp with absolutely nothing new to offer.

Admittedly there are a lot of great songs that all Rushaholics love such as The Spirit of Radio,Tom Sawyer, Freewill, Limelight, By-Tor and the Snowdog, The Trees and Closer to the Heart. All are classics and well known as stage performance favourites and quitessential legendary Rush. Once again though any Rush fan would have these so the album is rendered obsolete.

For completionists perhaps this would look endearing among all their other Rush CDs, however this is a money grabbing exercise in shameless marketing. There could have been some rarities, oddities or live tracks to appeal to the ardent Rush fan but unfortunately there is nothing new under the sun with this release.

3 stars This compilation seemingly serves two purposes: (1) to "mildly exasperate" [replace with stronger language as appropriate] established fans and completionists hoping for something more than a cheap collection of thirteen more radio-friendly familiars and (2) as a cut-price entry point to low-inc ...

3 stars I got this compilation album as a pick-up gift from a friend. I have not been in top form lately and I needed a boost, she thought. Prog rock = Rush or Queen in her view. Hence this album and hence this review. It pains me to say this, but I am really, really enjoying this compilation album. ... (read more)
