It's a stellar album and Vapor Trails similarly blew my socks off (especially after the long gap between T4E and it).

The '80s are the best overall decade for Rush, IMO!

Yes. These guy's have always been in a class of their own and the fact that they can still produce top shelf music is a testament to their talent.

My favorite song off Power Windows is Middletown Dreams. I don't know why exactly, but this song sounds steeped in sadness or a feeling of loss of some kind to me.

Hmmm....wouldn't Red Barchetta be more appropriate? Big smile

The intro always reminds me of Blade Runner for some reason.


A reason I would not disagree with. :)

Glad you like the track as I do. It's amazing. Sonic joy all around. :)

+1

Lifeson's solo is also a particular highlight of Emotion Detector for me. I've always loved his tasteful use of the whammy bar and his musical phrasing that just compliments the song so well.

While that's right up there, I've always liked Grand Designs and Territories a bit more. Of course, the whole albums amazing and is one of my favorite Rush albums (behind Grace Under Pressure).


Geddy's bassline in "Marathon" is so decadent, it'll give your ears diabetes. "The Big Money" is amazing, as is "Middletown Dreams."

Power Windows: another album produced by the band at the height of their powers.

I must say, they're not doing too shabby nowadays, eh!

Wanted to toss out a book recommendation -

Assuming you love Rush...and 80s pop culture and 80s movies...and also RPGs/MMOs...with a nod towards virtual reality... you might enjoy a book called

"Ready Player One"

An easy read...reads at the level of Hunger Games...maybe a bit above. Great for the beach since summer is here. Very nostalgic and I read lots of it with a very big grin.
