5.0 out of 5 stars The epitomy of musical excellence, 13 Aug 2004
This review is from: Moving Pictures (Audio CD)
I can confidently say that for me 'Moving Pictures' is the best rock album of all time. Rush moved through several styles during the seventies, and by the time MP was recorded they had evolved into the most technically proficient rock musicians in the industry. Their songwriting had also evolved to a point where they became more concise with their tunes, less concerned with writing the lengthy prog epics of their 70's output. They achieved this without, in any way 'selling out' MP is a wonderfully produced album, which compliments the bands very tight playing. The album excites the listerner with the driving instrumental masterpiece 'YYZ', Inspires with the memorable 'Tom Sawyer' and entrances with the epic (only epic on the album) 'The camera eye' Rush have always been masters of creating exciting rock music. They also bring prog rock ideas to life and give them structure without compromising the more positive prog conventions - good musicianship, conceptual songwriting and being open to jazz and classical influences, but without the pomp. Moving Pictures is the point in their career when everything great about this unique Canadian band came together on one fine album. If you only ever buy one Rush album, let this be it.

Spot on Sir! I had a friend round for a drink (or ten) a few weeks ago and he said it would be impossible to name the greatest rock album of all time; I said 'nonsense' and immediately put on Moving Pictures! Yes, for me too, this is the definative rock album. A perfect album.
