Clockwork Angels was indeed the better of the two, but S&A was a step in the right direction (looking at it in hidsight, since I heard CA first).

It would have been nice for them to squeeze out one more album but I guess that's not going to happen now.

You never know. Things can change. They likely won't change but I'll still hold out a tiny sliver of hope that maybe someday they will come back to make one last album.

One thing that I find interesting with Rush is that they have re-issued many/most of their albums over the years and they have very few, if any, "previously unreleased" songs.  Most bands when they reissue albums throw in a few of these tracks to make them more desirable as a purchase for fans.   I have seen multiple comments regarding Rush that they do not have any unreleased material.  This seems odd to me.  You would think that over the 40+ years that the band was together that they would have recorded songs that they decided not to release, but to date very little, if any, of this has shown up.

I have a feeling that there will be new studio material from them in the near future.

Maybe but not as the band Rush. If you mean new material by Alex and Geddy together then yeah I agree. I can definitely see that happening in the near future.

No, I mean Rush, have a feeling that Neil will change his mind eventually. Perfectly OK if it don't happen, though. What an awesome career and discography and if the excellent Clockwork is their final effort, so be it.

Well, don't hold your breath waiting. Wink I'd say there's probably a better chance of an REM or Porcupine Tree reunion. Just because Rush never had a big farewell tour like Black Sabbath doesn't mean they are going to reunite. I know it's what we all would like but it's better to be surprised than to give your hopes up for something that at this point is highly unlikely.

Clockwork Angels is a great album and a great way to say goodbye. I would be nervous if they announced a new album that it might not be as good and that they might end their career with a sub-par album. Not many bands are capable of releasing such a good album to end their career.

Have to say that I wasn´t very happy to hear the latest Rush-live. Geddy has lost his voice quite badly, so it wasn´t really pleasure to me listen their old great songs, not even they´ve put tuning down for example Hemispheres. So if they ever will reunite (which I don´t think will happen) I don´t believe I will ever go their concert, although I´ve never seen them.

I agree with you. It's almost painful to hear Geddy try to sing some of the older songs. For instance, I can't even listen to recent live versions of Freewill anymore. That song just doesn't work for me if Geddy can't sing it like he did when it was recorded.

I think they were quite groundbreaking for a while. I think A Farewell to Kings through to Moving Pictures inclusive were all groundbreaking albums. I can't think of anything by anyone else that sounds like music from the Hemispheres album, or anyone else who fused prog rock, with new wave in the way they did on MP and PW.

I thought they had run their course by Counterparts tbh, which I still think is a great album. Anything after that did little for me.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I've always wondered about that too Scott, I mean there must be material in one of their vaults they never released. Even alternate studio takes/mixes, most bands will include these in reissues, like Led Zeppelin did with the deluxe box sets.

Anyhow I have plenty of Rush material to keep me going for the next 30-40yrs. As records are my preferred media, I am always hunting the bins for those original releases/presses that sound brilliant! Still hunting for a Moving Pictures mastered by Bob Ludwig in VG++ condition. I know I will find it, as well as another copy of AFTK. My original copy is a JAMF issue, one of my best sounding records easily.....lookin for another.....

That keeps my Rush blood flowing.......

I have a slight feeling Neil will be interested in recording material, and maybe it will be some of this unreleased stuff....but touring for sure I think they are done.

No, I think the question is what are you trying to prove? You're the one who can't seem to accept the fact that the band is done, not me.
