5 stars Much has already been written about the albums within this set - "Signals", "Grace Under Pressure", "Power Windows", "Hold Your Fire" and "A Show Of Hands". All I can say is that this is an exceptionally well done job on the remastering. Specifically speaking, "Hold Your Fire" (one of my favourite Rush albums) has been given its proper due for a remaster. Also, "Countdown" from the album Signals is crystal clear, especially the sampling from Nasa's space programme. Grace Under Pressure doesn't sound quite so cold considering all the keyboards that were used (it's all well balanced here). For remastered Rush, this is likely the last stop you'll ever make. Superb and highly recommended for fans of '80s Rush. Last but not least, Rush's most atmospheric album for the keys - "Power Windows" is simply breathtaking. Wait 'til you hear "Territories". Better people, better food and better beer (that pretty much sums up Rush and this great box set). Signals comes with a 5.1 version on DVD (and I mean "version" because it's slightly different on the mixes used for the 5.1). Wow! Thank you Geddy, Alex & Neil.
Gooner | 5/5 |
