Product Description

The Rush Fan Pack includes Clockwork Angels, the band's incredible new studio album, plus a 132-page magazine dedicated to one of hard rock's biggest and most enduring bands. Fans who buy the Rush Fan pack will be able to hear Clockwork Angels exclusively weeks before it hits the shelves in record stores. The Fan Pack magazine is 100% Rush-approved and contains brand new interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart talking in depth and at length about their latest, much anticipated studio album and about their incredible thirty-year plus career that's seen them shift over 40 million albums and sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide. Clockwork Angels is the eagerly awaited twentieth studio album from Rush, and to celebrate the band's legacy, the magazine looks back at their legendary career with the help of, among others, members of the Manic Street Preachers, Porcupine Tree, Mastodon and original producer, Terry Brown. The magazine also speaks to the men behind the band's award winning documentary, Beyond The Lighted Stage and to Kiss' Gene Simmons about taking the young Rush out as their support band in the 70s. All of this plus rare shots of Rush from the band's personal archives, a Rush Keyring and a Giant double sided poster, make it a real must for Rush fans everywhere. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hard to believe how fresh these guys are able to sound 38 years after their first album.
I had not great expectations about this one. Based on the two previous studio albums, I just awaited another "Rush by numbers" work. I mean: powerful, hard hitting and masterfully executed, but not especially inspired.. I liked Snakes and Arrows a bit more than Vapor Trails, but somehow the spirit of old Rush' golden era (let's say the one that flew over A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures) seemed to be forever gone.

A digression here : Vapor Trails, especially, is a quite tiresome album to me. It stays a bit to much in the low frequency sonic spectre: too much bass guitar, to much bass drum, and too much guitar power chords, not properly equilibrated by other sonic and musical ingredients, which makes it a hard task to listen to it, from beginning to end, without taking a break. Snakes and Arrows, while walking the same sonic territory as V.T., was more varied and dynamic, and I found it more enjoyable. Not bad albums to my taste, but not exciting enough.

Clockwork Angels, however, is gifted with a different nature. It is tremendously fresh, vital and captivating, and makes me recall the best years of the band. Yes, Rush look younger than yesterday, playing with enthusiasm a set of convincing songs. Nothing to do with (like someone could fear), a tired old group. There are no fillers in this album. It is a concept album equipped with its proper organic quality. From the beginnig, the listener is propelled by an exciting, dynamic music, feeling the need to know how the story goes.

As I said it is a concept album, based on a sci-fi story.

2012's Clockwork Angels is the new concept album from the legendary Canadian band Rush. It is the band's nineteenth studio album of original material (twentieth if you count the covers album Feedback) and follows up their last two albums in bringing out the more Hard Rock/Metal aspects of their sound. It takes Snakes And Arrows' variety and Vapor Trails' power and combines them into a very strong album indeed, one that isn't ever dull or plodding. It can be bought now as a digital download, now in a special fan pack edition of Classic Rock Magazine that comes with a Keychain, Poster and links to online bonus content or later on its own in either CD or Vinyl format. The story that it tells is also available separately as a novel if you want to take things even further.

If you have already heard `Caravan' and `BU2B,' which were released a full two years earlier than the record was, then you should have some idea of this album's musical direction already. The songs have since been re-recorded to fit in better with the rest of the album though, so even if you've played them to death already, you won't feel cheated that they are part of the album.

Despite concentrating on the band's heavier side, the album is still very dynamic and varied. Sometimes things will be melodic and sweet, sometimes there are synths and keys in there, sometimes you'll hear little touches that remind you of Hemispheres and A Farewell To Kings and then of course sometimes you'll hear more of the direction from Snakes And Arrows' and Vapor Trails' heavier moments. The opening to `Carnies' even has a big fat riff that could almost fit on a Monster Magnet or Down album.

As a Rush fan since 1979, I can honestly say they are fully back on track. Passion, precision and speed abound in the music. The production is fine, don't listen to the whiners! Rip to at least 320kbps or just listen to the CD! I think this release is the best since 1981. Modern, layered, dynamic and I can't wait for May 2013 when they hit the UK. A must have release.

The Garden will blow you away.

Unlike a lot of people, I'm quite a young Rush fan (I'm only 18) but in the past 2 years or so, I've fallen in love with Rush because of the sublime way they've told such stories through their music. My favourite albums before this would probably be the era from Fly by Night to Moving Pictures, as well as Presto; however, I was pleasantly surprised by this album as I wasn't expecting it to leave such an impression so quickly. I remember listening to Caravan and BU2B when they came out as singles and thinking, "Hmm... Not bad." Although, as a complete album, I think that the album as a whole is much better than its constituent songs as it tells a brilliant story laced with steampunk and alchemy. Truly a brilliant album and probably one of my favourite Rush albums already.

Every album Rush have produced since the heady days of Moving Pictures has had at least 2 or 3 good tracks on it and while I was really pleased with Vapor Trails I found Snakes and Arrows a bit more of a mixed bag.
Clockwork Angels is the best of the three post hiatus albums by a margin and while it is too early to tell for sure I think there is an argument for this being the best album since Power Windows.

The album starts with the two pre-released tracks Caravan and BU2B which is a pity on first listen as the rest of the album is fresher and it detracted from that initial buzz of listening to an album for the first few times. That said, this is a loose concept album and there is a story going on around the songs so it makes sense to place them where they are.

There are twelve tracks on the album (11 if you discount the reprise of BU2B) and they are all of good quality with a handful of early standouts to grab the attention and pull you in to the album as a whole. The mid-section of The Anarchist, Carnies and Halo Effect is a superb run of potential classics with The Wreckers providing another 'hit'. The total standout is the superb closer The Garden. Genuinely up there with the best songs they have ever produced. It has everything - heart and soul combined with excellent lyrics and great instrumentation.

My only criticism of the album is the production. I bought the 'fan pack' so have the CD but my first listen was on a lower spec PC and the mix sounded very muddy; like there was great gig on inside the stadium but I was on the outside.
