It took me years to warm up to 80's Rush, the yuppie-rock years (as we called it back then).

I lost touch after Moving Pictures.

The Pass caught my ear and I gradually started to rediscover.
Got back into the live shows when I saw the 30th Anniversary tour in Montreal.

Honestly, Rush is a band that I was never able to get in to.

I honestly just can't stand Geddy Lee's voice.

Ha! Yeah at first listen (yesterday) the high pitched screams bothered me a little. But I hated Plant's voice at first too. So I'll see how that goes. Thanks for the tips guys! Will listen to some of them at work today. :)

The high-pitched vocals really taper off around Permanent Waves/Moving Pictures because Geddy really pushed himself during the recording of Hemispheres. So once you hit the 80s, he doesn't do any of those kinds of wailing vocals.

Tried All The Worlds Stage and Moving Pictures. I do love the instrumentation, especially live. Geddy's voice is still so-so for me. Good at some times, but just a little annoying at other times. I still have that dated feel at times though, don't like that. We'll see how it goes.

This is getting a bit off-topic, but since some people have specifically mentioned Anthem, has anyone heard Anthrax's forthcoming cover of it?



Thanks powerage. That was great!

Heard the cover of Anthem and I like it. Bit of a strain on Joey's vocals, but that's okay. At least he puts a full effort into it.

He was completely anti-doing Anthem solely because of the vocals, he said it was one of the craziest things he's ever recorded. The rest of the EP is really cool too though...just wait until you hear their Journey cover!

The Pass is one of my favorite Rush songs, I was so glad to finally see it live last year! Presto is a criminally underrated album.

Geddy's vocals are a bit of an acquired taste, definitely. If you're really loving the instrumental work though, check out La Villa Strangiato. It's a 10 minute instrumental, and it's just absolutely insane.

I love Presto. The live version of Show Don't Tell on Different Stages is insanely good.
