I was just listening to Hemispheres again the other day... still one of the best records of all time. I remember it being one of the first albums I listened to as a kid, and the songwriting is just as superb as the first time I heard it. Having four strong tracks was one of the band's best moves, considering it leaves the listener with no filler at all; in this case, less was more.

Saw Rush for the first time this spring when they played St. Louis for probably the final time.  St. Louis is a big Rush town and its strange to think they are probably done with the big tours and all that.  They were amazing as I expected.  Working their way back from the latest stuff to the first album was great and they played a song that I think really changed how I viewed some of their 80's synth stuff.  Early Distant Warning.  That sounded so good that I went and bought Grace Under Pressure.  Love that album now.  Need to get Power Windows next.   Was always a big debut through Moving Pictures fan but they opened a whole new era of thier music up for me with a stunning live show.  Need to grab Clockwork Angels.  Listened to it on Amazon and a damn fine album.

Also, a couple of Facebook posts from Clockwork Angels co-author Kevin J. Anderson:


For those of you NOT lucky enough to be at Rushcon, I made an announcement this afternoon about an anthology of Rush-based stories I'll be coediting with John McFetridge for ECW (publishers of Clockwork Angels). We have a gang of award-winning and bestselling authors already lined up to contribute stories based on Rush songs. And I'll be doing a novella called "2113".

Kevin J. Anderson announces: sequel to Clockwork Angels The Novel: Clockwork Lives. Co-written by Neil Peart. He is now reading top secret excerpts.

What are your thoughts on the Rush R40 Anniversary Box Set?  http://www.rush.com/r40-40th-anniversary-collectors-box-set-available-in-dvd-blu-ray/

I have all of the Live Concerts on either Blu-ray or DVD so have no use for other copies, but I am intrigued by the previously unreleased concert footage.

After reading the Rush synth thread I just did a binge on Signals thru Presto (ok, I expanded it a bit!)  :p

Phenomenal songs, phenomenal musicianship! Thumbs Up
Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you,
Make the most of all you still have coming to you
