Biography

With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular. The RIAA has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the ... Read more in Amazon's Rush Store

Product Description

The Rush Fan Pack includes Clockwork Angels, the band's incredible new studio album, plus a 132-page magazine dedicated to one of hard rock's biggest and most enduring bands. Fans who buy the Rush Fan pack will be able to hear Clockwork Angels exclusively weeks before it hits the shelves in record stores. The Fan Pack magazine is 100% Rush-approved and contains brand new interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart talking in depth and at length about their latest, much anticipated studio album and about their incredible thirty-year plus career that's seen them shift over 40 million albums and sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide. Clockwork Angels is the eagerly awaited twentieth studio album from Rush, and to celebrate the band's legacy, the magazine looks back at their legendary career with the help of, among others, members of the Manic Street Preachers, Porcupine Tree, Mastodon and original producer, Terry Brown. The magazine also speaks to the men behind the band's award winning documentary, Beyond The Lighted Stage and to Kiss' Gene Simmons about taking the young Rush out as their support band in the 70s. All of this plus rare shots of Rush from the band's personal archives, a Rush Keyring and a Giant double sided poster, make it a real must for Rush fans everywhere. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hard to believe how fresh these guys are able to sound 38 years after their first album.
I had not great expectations about this one. Based on the two previous studio albums, I just awaited another "Rush by numbers" work. I mean: powerful, hard hitting and masterfully executed, but not especially inspired.. I liked Snakes and Arrows a bit more than Vapor Trails, but somehow the spirit of old Rush' golden era (let's say the one that flew over A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures) seemed to be forever gone.

A digression here : Vapor Trails, especially, is a quite tiresome album to me. It stays a bit to much in the low frequency sonic spectre: too much bass guitar, to much bass drum, and too much guitar power chords, not properly equilibrated by other sonic and musical ingredients, which makes it a hard task to listen to it, from beginning to end, without taking a break. Snakes and Arrows, while walking the same sonic territory as V.T., was more varied and dynamic, and I found it more enjoyable. Not bad albums to my taste, but not exciting enough.

Clockwork Angels, however, is gifted with a different nature. It is tremendously fresh, vital and captivating, and makes me recall the best years of the band. Yes, Rush look younger than yesterday, playing with enthusiasm a set of convincing songs. Nothing to do with (like someone could fear), a tired old group. There are no fillers in this album. It is a concept album equipped with its proper organic quality. From the beginnig, the listener is propelled by an exciting, dynamic music, feeling the need to know how the story goes.

Theme:
As I said it is a concept album, based on a sci-fi story.

Now this is meant as a compliment but I am not a Rush fan. I don't dislike them but have just never felt the need to buy into them in any great way. However, I did like Snakes and Arrows and I now positively adore Clockwork Angels. I'll let others who know more about the band decide where this album stands in the pantheon of Rush releases so it just suffices to say that any one who may have misgivings about Rush and their relevance nowadays should listen, really listen, to this album and wallow in the outrageously good prog/metal on offer. BTW I only listen to music on my computer or ipod nowadays and the album sounds fine to me so I can't comment on the apparent shortfall in sonic quality for those with decent kits.

2012's Clockwork Angels is the new concept album from the legendary Canadian band Rush. It is the band's nineteenth studio album of original material (twentieth if you count the covers album Feedback) and follows up their last two albums in bringing out the more Hard Rock/Metal aspects of their sound. It takes Snakes And Arrows' variety and Vapor Trails' power and combines them into a very strong album indeed, one that isn't ever dull or plodding. It can be bought now as a digital download, now in a special fan pack edition of Classic Rock Magazine that comes with a Keychain, Poster and links to online bonus content or later on its own in either CD or Vinyl format. The story that it tells is also available separately as a novel if you want to take things even further.

If you have already heard `Caravan' and `BU2B,' which were released a full two years earlier than the record was, then you should have some idea of this album's musical direction already. The songs have since been re-recorded to fit in better with the rest of the album though, so even if you've played them to death already, you won't feel cheated that they are part of the album.

Despite concentrating on the band's heavier side, the album is still very dynamic and varied. Sometimes things will be melodic and sweet, sometimes there are synths and keys in there, sometimes you'll hear little touches that remind you of Hemispheres and A Farewell To Kings and then of course sometimes you'll hear more of the direction from Snakes And Arrows' and Vapor Trails' heavier moments. The opening to `Carnies' even has a big fat riff that could almost fit on a Monster Magnet or Down album.

As a Rush fan since 1979, I can honestly say they are fully back on track. Passion, precision and speed abound in the music. The production is fine, don't listen to the whiners! Rip to at least 320kbps or just listen to the CD! I think this release is the best since 1981. Modern, layered, dynamic and I can't wait for May 2013 when they hit the UK. A must have release.

The Garden will blow you away.

Unlike a lot of people, I'm quite a young Rush fan (I'm only 18) but in the past 2 years or so, I've fallen in love with Rush because of the sublime way they've told such stories through their music. My favourite albums before this would probably be the era from Fly by Night to Moving Pictures, as well as Presto; however, I was pleasantly surprised by this album as I wasn't expecting it to leave such an impression so quickly. I remember listening to Caravan and BU2B when they came out as singles and thinking, "Hmm... Not bad." Although, as a complete album, I think that the album as a whole is much better than its constituent songs as it tells a brilliant story laced with steampunk and alchemy. Truly a brilliant album and probably one of my favourite Rush albums already.
