Although not quite as musically challenging or complex as some of their earlier albums, Signals remains one of my own personal favourites. The lyrics are incredibly descriptive and heartfelt. Who can fail to relate to the deeply personal feelings expressed in "losing it" and the pressure felt by all teenagers to conform and loose their individuality in "Subdivisions" and the "Analog Kid". Thankfully some of us never do entirely. So sit back, close your eyes and soar into the heavens hitching a ride on "Space Shuttle Columbia", if this doesn't send a chill down your spine I suggest you check the mirror to make sure you're not dead!

I rate this album as one of their very best ever. Right up there with Moving Pictures, Permanent Waves, A Farewell to Kings.

I had just got into Rush and had really liked Moving Pictures.

I then heard this and was blown away.

Whereas many Rush fans stayed stuck in the past and moaned at the "reggae" on the album, I embraced it.

This album was when Rush proved they would continue to be a continuing force in rock music beyond their hard rock roots.

I can't really understand much of the criticism of this album.

Most of it centres around the sound. The guitar is "drowned out".

However, for me this misses the point. People are comapring this with their later work where they hit new heights with synth technology.

This was their first foray into it so was never going to have the same crispness as the others.

Whilst I agree the sound quality is not their best, being obsessive about this is missing the truly superb songs that are on this album.

First, there is one of the greatest Rush songs of all time - Subdivisions. Being a typical 16 year old at the time, the lyrics struck an absolute raw nerve with me and still make the hairs on the back of my neck stick up. They are amongst Neil Peart's very best and could not fit better with the music.

Both Analog Kid and Chemistry are also great efforts.

But then the truly superb Digital Man. This is another outstanding rush song and I was delighted to see it got recognition by being included in their track list for their latest tour.

The Weapon is another clever and imaginative effort and swiftly followed by New World Man. This song epitomises everything that is good about Rush.

The follow up to their best album (Moving pictures) and to be honest,this is almost as good,with only the throwaway final track 'Countdown' letting the side down.As with the previous disc the first 4 tracks(side 1 on vinyl) are absolutely superb,the instantly likeable insistent throbbing pulsating 'Subdivisions',the upbeat(for Rush)'Analog Kid' with Geddy's Bass bubbling away,the excellent 'Chemistry' and the dynamic 'Digital Man', a personal favourite,the 3 members combine on these tracks to absolute perfection.
The rest,well its hard to follow those 4 but 'The Weapon' succeeds and who hasnt had a shiver up the spine moment when the electric violin of Ben Mink soars out of the speakers during the sublime 'Losin It' whilst 'New World Man' bounces around trying to be a hit single.This was the last Rush album for years that i had a real connection too,sadly the machine would take over and Alex would be shut out quite a bit while Geddy's keyboards would take over.

Once again Rush have produced a truly stunning collection of songs. My favourate. Always hear something new every time I listen. If you haven't heard Rush before then this is the album to introduce you to their endlessly innovative music.

Rush's moment finally arrived with Moving Pictures in 1981. The late seventies saw the band steadily becoming one the more commercial prog acts. Permanent Waves had a major radio hit in "The Spirit Of Radio". Things were heading in a good direction. Moving Pictures saw at least three classic songs ("Tom Sawyer", "Red Barchetta" and "Limelight") and the rest of the album was full of great songs too, bar one- "Vital Signs", a misguided reggae-lite affair with electro drums. Ironically, this worst song would indicate the direction the band would head for this, their next album, which happens to be as far as I'm concerned their finest hour until 2002's Vapor Trails.

Signals just doesn't have a weak track on it. Having said that, it's important to mention that this is the beginning of the period that split Rush fans right down the middle. There are more synths on here than any previous album. So if you like your rock with guitar, bass and drums only, turn away now.

But if you DO like 'em, Signals is a feast. From the opener, the driving "Subdivisions", they're out in full force. The song features lyrics that seem to deal with the tribulations of youth ("conform or be cast out"), somewhat strange coming from an established group of older musicians. But whatever. The song is as catchy as they come, an anthem of sorts, and the first of many radio-friendly numbers on the album. As the band moves on, "The Analog Kid" starts with a lively pace, perhaps to make up for "Subdivisions"' brooding. By the time "Chemistry" begins you realise that unlike the previous albums, Signals doesn't really follow the 'one-for-you-, one-for-us' balance of short tunes and prog epics. I'm happy enough with this. Rush are talented and confident enough to pull this off.
