A Brilliant Album Not An Average One!!!,
This review is from: Clockwork Angels (Audio CD)
I have completely re-written my review from a few days ago as this album has just suddenly clicked with me. I should have known by now as a Rush fan of 36 years they have done it again. On first listening this album sounded average and after a couple of days it sounded a bit better but not much. Then suddenly last night listening to it on my headphones it just clicked. I really love it now I really do, I take back all what I said before about it being average and apologize if I mislead anyone as this truly is a monster of an album.
Darn those Rush boys they really know how to confuse and old fart like me!!!

Painful to accept but totally agree. Played the album for the 3rd time on my way to work and found after about 10 mins that my mind was wandering yet again. There is no light and shade just a barrage of loud music and very few subleties. I can remember all the melodies in, say, Moving Pictures but cannot readily recall anything from Snakes And Arrows and i fear the same will happen with this one. They seem to have morphed into an amalgam of heavy metal and grunge. Such a shame!

Hi just to let you know that I completely changed my review, last night I was listening to the CD on my headphones and for some bizarre reason it suddenly clicked and now I think it is a brilliant album. I should know by now that Rush albums take time.

Sure, but I am, too, struggling to remember much after 3-4 plays....I cant remember any of it. I will RECOGNISE it but cannot recall. That must mean either structure or melody is missing, somehow. How they'll remember how to play it 'live' I dont know.
