Just how cool is that??! Doesn't sound like they've lost anything over the years. I remember being introduced to Permanent Waves back in 80 or 81 and becoming instantly hooked. Didn't take long before I had picked up all of their earlier work. Still luvz me some Rush.

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

Just in case folks didn't know, Headlong Flight is actually the third song from Clockwork Angels released.

The band released two songs last year as a preview, and played them both on the Time Machine Tour.

So if you missed them, here they are (both are awesome, BTW):

Awesome!
Enjoy!



I was really hoping to go back to Las Vegas for this tour (we've seen Rush there 3 times), but they scheduled the date on the Friday after Thanksgiving. WTF??

An interesting interview by Peter Mansbridge ... with Geddy:

A fair amount of "softball" questions, but Geddy answers them thoughtfully.

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

I'm hoping Wally World puts it out at midnight tonight.
My local record store started selling it early. I almost bought it but they charge $17 plus tax for a CD. I waited five years, I think I could wait a few more days...

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

This album is something else!

I'll post something more thoughtful later, but for now I will say this is probably their best album since Power Windows.

The Garden might end up being one of their best songs ever. Beautifully done.

This review is positive. Says they knocked it out of the park.

The reviews have generally been very good.

Here are two more positive ones:

http://www.edmontonjournal.com/enter...090/story.html

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/rush-...-album-review/

This is a great album, IMHO. Several tunes (Clockwork Angels, The Anarchist, Seven Cities of Gold, The Wreckers, Headlong Flight) are top-notch work. And it's nice to hear the keyboards back!

The Garden, the album's closer, is just gorgeous.

It's loosely a concept album, with a consistent theme running through. The whole thing fits together as one piece.

I can't wait for the tour.

That would be pretty cool, on the whole.
