That is a fantastic song. It rocks to holy heaven, sure, but it also features a well-written chorus that is sun with conviction that is so unique to Rush's style. It is in the chorus that elevates this song from a fantastic rock song top one that is special.

I love that one.

You can definitely hear a Signals sound there in the breaks.

The title track is awesome too.

In fact, I think there's only 2 misses on the album, and the other ten are very good - some of their best.

Halo Effect has grown on me, it's like Resist. Not great, but a welcome ballad. It's the second BU2B that does nothing for me.

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

BU2B2 is just there to move the story along. So I am fine with it.

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

Yeah, BU2B2 is not even really a song. It's a transition. I just skip it.

The only other song that doesn't do much for me is Wish Them Well.

There is so much to absorb here. I find something new everyday. Today, I'm really enjoying the title track.

Are any of you seeing the tour?

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

I happen to like Wish them Well, in the tradition of songs like 'Carve Away the Stone.' It could certainly have a bit more teeth, though.

Carnies is cool, but it doesn't take the carnival motif as far or as well as say Mr. Bungle's first album (think 'Carousel')

The best thing about "The Wreckers' is how close it is in style to the Rush stuff from the mid to late eighties.. people that just want to rock might be intrigued by this song and they might give tunes like "Mission' and "Grand Designs."

The only bad thing about "The Wreckers" is the producer's fault. Lifeson starts playing an awesome solo just after the fade at the end starts. I always find it a shame when Lifeson or other guitarists have an awesome solo at the end that has to fade out (like Dream Theater's "Take the Time") but the consolation is that the solo starts before the producer has his hands on the dials that will face it out. The producer started lowering the volume before Lifeson starts his solo. what a shame.

"Seven Cities of Gold" is an expansive track, but it's so good I almost wish it was nine minutes and not seven.

Seven Cities of Gold is awesome.

I like The Wreckers too.

What do you think of The Garden? On a Rush board I frequent, that is actually winning a current poll of favorites off the album.

Re: RUSH: Clockwork Angels

I like "The Garden' a lot. It's very good... though for me it doesn't quite flow as naturally or as brilliantly as similar songs like "Available Light" 9well just so you know, I am a huge Presto fan. If you remember on the rush Tour forum I opened up a whole thread on Anagram and why the lyrics to that were brilliant. it was called Anagram line-by-line) When i hear the Garden in the car it really works, but there are a few times when the lines don't quite flow from the music. still an excellent song, in the tradition of many Rush closers that I like.

Not my favorite. My favorites are "The Anarchists' 'BU2B' and"Seven cities"

I'm a big Presto fan too. I was very happy when they added the title song to the setlist last tour.

You were on the Rush Tour Forum? Did I know that?

LOL. What a clusterfuck that turned out to be!



When I found out the Admin was deleting my private messages to try and stop "the story" from getting out, that was it for me.

Although I hear it's back up and running again.

I tried logging in but couldn't remember my password. Recovering it is a pain. It's easier to break into NORAD than to have a membership there. I was both Malnar and CameraEye

Yes, I remember Malnar. And I do remember the Anagram thread now. Takes my old brain a minute to catch up.

I don't know if they saved the profiles from the old board or not.

I post on The Rush Forum now. Pretty big and busy. Always something going on.
