What makes the band Rush so great

Rush - A Farewell To Kings

26.12.2010 - 21:59

You don't need to say much more about the band. Lee, Peart and Lifeson are three of the best musicians of all time!

I want to pay homage to the song Xanadu here. The song cannot be described in words. Check out this live version from 81´.

Yes, you don't have to say more about Xanadu either.
Xanaaaaaduuuuu.

26.12.2010 - 23:19

Of course, when it comes to paying homage to Rush, I'll be there ;-) In fact, a nice live version of one of Rush's best songs.

But I guess it's going to be pretty useless in this forum. Not even their biggest success "Moving Pictures" or the current album have their own thread here. : - /

I hope you are still there when I open a thread about the upcoming album "Clockwork Angels" 8). That’s going to be very awesome, the two already known songs are fantastic harbingers.

I never understood why this band is so overrated, because apart from the sometimes quite good "Moving Pictures" album, they didn't get anything sensible on the chain.

And this gross motor, almost permanently unclean drumming by the supposedly oh so great Neil Peart makes most of the stuff absolutely inaudible.

Neil Peart is the Lars Ulrich of Progrock.

Typically crazy Olle who hasn't had sex for a long time and has no plan for demanding music. RUSH is the band with the most constant output and used up tons of masterpieces!

As for Neil Peart, at 55 today he's even better than would-be hardcore drum drummers combined.

So go rough poop!

27.12.2010 - 22:05

It's amazing what you get thrown around the ears with a female Nick when you have a different taste in music.
Lack of sex.

So Honks, whose musical horizon is roughly that of the Rock Hard editorial team, can continue to idolize Rush.

I'm just too far due to my listening habits for their overestimated quark and the untight drumming.

So shove your rush albums in the back while you're pooping!

27.12.2010 - 22:14

Tell Fotz, which albums do you know Rush's?

27.12.2010 - 22:34

* Popcorn eat *

27.12.2010 - 22:39

I can see you don't know a shit.
Stupid female chatter.
Such complex music can only tolerate human brains and not women!

27.12.2010 - 22:55

Rush is rancid & greasy old man rock. tired. jenny is right ...

27.12.2010 - 23:01

My schizophrenic hemisphere is spinning again. Rush is very good, please ignore the post above.

27.12.2010 - 23:03

No, certainly not. "Progressive Rock".
Saga are also really great, and REO Speedwaggon.
Rush. Gag.

27.12.2010 - 23:06

Saga Better Than Rush!

Wuahahahahaha

You make my day!

27.12.2010 - 23:11

The concert documentary "Shine A Light" about the Rolling Stones is about to be broadcast on ZDF.
Could be something for you.

27.12.2010 - 23:27

whennnnnnnn?
100,000,000 times more interesting than a tired pulp like rush

27.12.2010 - 23:32

There is currently an article about geriatrics on Bayern 3. Could be something for you.

27.12.2010 - 23:35

they are all asleep now .........

26.06.2011 - 11:49

amazing album!

26.06.2011 - 11:50

But now the very old camels are being unpacked here.

26.06.2011 - 18:12

the old camels are often the best, because it is well known that EVERYTHING was better in the past without exception. even indie rock!

26.06.2011 - 19:46

The title track on the album is amazing!

27.06.2011 - 19:54

Rush are great.

Especially on the 80s albums like "Grace Under Pressure", "Power Windows" (Kraft-Fenster, hihi) or "Hold Your Fire" there are actually only hits on it.

It's not soooo insanely "progressive" (thank God), but fast, lively and catchy.

Ham stolen a bit from U2 or Police at the time, so stylistically, then of course a correspondingly inflated 80s production, so Trevor-Horn-wise, lyrics sometimes a bit silly, singing much more bearable than on the 70s albums. (Which are also great)

27.06.2011 - 20:00

2112 to Moving Pictures >>>>> Synthie-Rush

27.06.2011 - 20:20

By the way, is called the best rush memory band at the moment.

I think they will bring a new album soon.

27.06.2011 - 21:07

They may be good, but Rush don't need a "memory band" - they rock hard enough themselves:>

The two harbinger songs of the new album (already known for over 1 year) are absolutely top material and also fell live compared to "Moving Pictures" and co. not off.

It was not for nothing that I set "Caravan" to 1 at the last annual poll:

27.06.2011 - 21:19

Hmm, so the two new songs don't really knock me out now, are undoubtedly good, but unique (like many previous things ... subdivisons, natural science, limelight to name a few) this is no longer for me! somehow I miss that certain something that made earlier songs so special! "driven" e.g. B. has a melody to kneel down! Compared to other prog (rock) bands the two pieces are still pretty good, but for rush conditions ... But in general I couldn't do that much with "snakes and arrows" and it seems like the path is being pursued further. but at rush you never know, will definitely buy me the album and hope that you will find your "(old) strength" ...

27.06.2011 - 22:06

The other new song has the better melody, namely "BU2B" .. you should hear that too :)

27.06.2011 - 22:16

I already know it and think it's better than "caravan" but really ... no comparison with hearing "limelight" or "natural science" for the first time ... well, as I said, I'm excited anyway is the fear after the two well-known songs that they will not meet my "prehistoric" rush taste with the upcoming album ...

28.06.2011 - 09:36

I thought "Snakes' n Arrows" was great in places, but well, I could even win a lot from "Vapor Trails". The weakest Rush album for me is most likely "Test For Echo" (I haven't heard the first 3 albums yet), but that's about it, they can't really shit anyway. I'm looking forward to the new one. When will she come again?

My face, what did I just have to laugh about ...: D

08.06.2013 - 12:17

Was the two-part song "Cygnus X-1" actually the inspiration for the namesake of The Mars Volta on "Frances the mute"?

08.06.2013 - 12:33

I think Neil Peart is pretty shitty too.
Especially on the "Snakes And Arrows" he drums enormously unclean and crappy.

09.06.2013 - 21:33

how do you pronounce "peart" in German?
