RUSH – Chronicles

The legendary progressive rock trio of Geddy Lee, Neil Peart and Alex Lifeson is represented here in a three disc package – one DVD and two CDs.
The collection covers their career from 1974-1989, and on the two discs there are 28 technical and intriguing songs that still hold up very well by today’s standards (if not surpassing many). There’s Finding My Way, Working Man, Fly By Night, Anthem, Bastille Day, Lakeside Park, 2112 Overture / The Temples Of Syrinx, Freewill, Force Ten, Manhattan Project, and Show Don’t Tell. Live tracks include What You’re Doing, A Passage To Bangkok, Mystic Rhythms, and most of the songs appearing on the DVD.
The DVD features 14 videos, often very outdated with primitive video effects, but the music remains amazing. Songs include Closer To The Heart, Limelight, Tom Sawyer, Subdivisions, Red Sector A, Mystic Rhythms, Lock And Key, as well as two hidden clips, The Enemy Within, and Afterimage. A couple of the videos do not have audio equivalents on the CDs.
While Rush is not your average rock band appealing to pop fans (mainly due to their almost jazz-like technical approach and Lee’ s high vocals), they deserve to be checked out by everyone to broaden their musical horizons.

PS. A friend saw them perform in the UK during the mid 2000’s and thought they still absolutely amazing.
