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.

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.

Any sites that list things like time signatures of Rush songs and such information?

Well, less in terms of number of tracks, yeah. However, it's one of the most complex Rush records ever made. So complex that they decided after it was done, that they never wanted to make an album like that again. Given that, it's hard to consider it "less" anything.

Regardless, it ranks as one of my top five Rush albums. I still listen to it regularly.

Some lives can be summed up in a sentence or two. Other lives are epics.

In Clockwork Angels, #1 bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson and legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart created a fabulous, adventurous steampunk world in a novel to accompany the smash Rush concept album of the same name. It was a world of airships and alchemy, clockwork carnivals, pirates, lost cities, a rigid Watchmaker who controlled every aspect of life, and his nemesis, the ruthless and violent Anarchist who wanted to destroy it all.

Anderson and Peart have returned to their colourful creation to explore the places and the characters that still have a hold on their imagination. Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village; she long ago gave up on her dreams and ambitions to take care of her ailing father, an alchemist and an inventor. When he dies, he gives Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people’s stories — and ultimately her own.

Clockwork Lives is a steampunk Canterbury Tales, and much more, as Marinda strives to change her life from a mere “sentence or two” to a true epic.
