5 stars Rush's Moving Pictures is truly a five star effort. There is not a subpar song on this album, the artists are technically brilliant, and most importantly every song makes the point it is intended to make. The opener, Tom Sawyer, is an anthem to the intelligent youth of the world in an open, expressive style. Red Barchetta is perhaps one of my favorite Rush tracks from any album. It mixes lyrics of the joy of speed and the open road with a driving, joyful tune. YYZ is a smiply brilliant instrumental, showcasing the intense drumming of Neal Peart. The Camera Eye is more moody, more "progressive", and Witch Hunt is appropriately suspicion-evoking and dark. Vital Signs ends the album with a slightly reggae- influenced flair, and so ends one of the best albums in progressive rock. Even those of you, and know there are many, who hate Geddy Lee's voice and the whole Rush sound shold get this album. It is simply too good to pass up.
