The most approachable Rush album,
This review is from: Roll The Bones (Audio CD)
I think I'd be what's termed an occassional Rush fan. I've made an attempt with quite a few of their albums and have to say this is easily the most catchy and approachable - would I upset true Rush fans by terming it pop rock ? , I hope not. Most of their offerings in my opinion take quite a few listens to get into - they're all 'growers' though. RTB however had me hooked from the very first time I listened to it. The title track and 'Where's My Thing' (an instrumental) to me are the stand out tracks - the remaining tracks are however far far away from being filler - I'm being honest when I say there isn't a duffer on the album. If you're new to Rush, I'd start here. Their latest offering of 'Snakes And Arrows' prove Rush are still an amazing band but to me this has to be their finest hour - I'd put this in my top twenty albums of all time without a doubt.
