Rush - a concise review, 31 Dec. 2004
I have been a Rush fan since 1978 and have followed the bands music closely from the classic rock/prog of the 70s (the first music I heard from Rush was ALL THE WORLDS A STAGE) through the technology of the 80s and early 90s to the present hard rocking no frills band we have today. Although I new virtually everything that was contained within this book it was a good concise review of their history, development and the direction of their music over the years - which now seems to have turned full circle with the harder edged VAPOUR TRAILS CD and the jaw droppingly brilliant 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR (I wept). There are some decent pictures from the 70s to the present and the text is layed out chronologically. You will never see the likes of this band again so read the book and make up your own mind as to what cds to buy - though I would recommend: 2112, A FAREWELL TO KINGS, MOVING PICTURES, ROLL THE BONES, VAPOUR TRAILS and the 'live' DIFFERENT STAGES.
