This is a perfect CD for people like me, who are beginners in listening the magical Rush legacy. All the big hits are here in a nice and decent packaging.

Highly recommended.

First things first - yes, being a hard rock/prog collection of songs, most of the music on this album is incredibly silly, full of weird time signatures, long and involved solos, and some jaw-droppingly complicated musicianship. Don't let that put you off, though, because it is also awesome.

As a portrait of a band that has changed through the years, becoming more sophisticated and also more mellow (well, they are getting on a bit), this is an excellent way of getting into Rush's music. From the early songs, on which the influence of bands such as The Who can very clearly be heard (the intro to Fly By Night is a particular example here), through huge crowd-pleasing riffs on The Spirit Of Radio, all the way to slightly more chilled stuff such as Time Stands Still, complete with smooth backing vocals by Aimee Mann, there's quite a range of musical styles in evidence.

Pretty much all of these, however, will have you jumping around and playing as many air instruments as you can manage. And really, that's the point. The disc loses one star for a couple of reasons - the omission of YYZ, every instrumental progger's piece de resistance, and the fact that Neil Peart's lyrics do sometimes get so pretentious that it detracts from the overall experience. That said, if you're after a new experience of great music from a well-established band, crank up the speakers and rock on.

Been a Rush fan a long time but most of the stuff was on records so getting all these classics into digital format was my best option.

Brilliant. One you can put in the player and travel through all the eras. If your new to Rush - this will be a good introduction.

Rush at their very best. Superbly constructed & performed rock songs from the Canadian legends.
