Legendary rock trio Rush have unveiled details for their first new recording since being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR will be released via Anthem/Roadrunner Records and is a 3CD live document from the Clockwork Angels tour. RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR was recorded last November at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, during Rush’s highly successful Clockwork Angels Tour. The eleven month-marathon world tour crossed North America twice and ventured overseas to Europe in support of the band’s acclaimed 2012 studio release “CLOCKWORK ANGELS.” In capturing the tour’s electrifying three hour set, RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR pairs Rush classics (“Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit Of Radio,” “2112”), with a nod to the 80’s Rush era (The Analog Kid,” “Territories,” “Subdivisions”) alongside newly reworked arrangements specifically for the tour featuring the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble (“Headlong Flight,” “YYZ,” “Red Sector A”). The string section marks the first time the trio has brought additional musicians on the road with them. To showcase their latest studio release, the epic set list also features nine tracks off “CLOCKWORK ANGELS.” Other highlights include tracks rarely performed and never before recorded live (“The Body Electric,” “Middletown Dreams”), in addition to three separate drum solos by the incomparable Neil Peart.

Rush are quite simply my favourite band but the last few albums have been dreadful in terms of sound engineering. So bad that the Vapor Trails was remastered. Long gone have the days when the albums have room to breathe now it seems that Rush are a victim of the Loudness Wars. I really find it incomprehensible that a band of this stature, of this quality permit such poor recordings go out in their name?
There's an excellent article on this with reference to Rush albums here: http://riprowan.com/over-the-limit/
Anyway, back to this. There are two problems with this album. The first is the musical quality; or rather Geddy Lee's vocals. Another concert should have been chosen for the album rather than this one as I am afraid to say that Lee sounds terrible on this recording. The second problem is the engineering as a whole. There isn't a word or phrase that I can use which describes the dreadful quality of this.
I've played this album a few times on different rigs, as I have said, and I won't be playing it again. If the record companies wish to cut down on bootleggers then perhaps they ought to consider producing better albums.
I am sorry. One star is all this deserves. This should never have seen the light of day.
Yes the drums are low in the mix but he's still there and can be heard,yes it takes a little more effort on the part of the listener but you can still zone in on Pearts performance and enjoy,he's just not at the fore front as many would wish.The vocals are certainly better than the 'Time Machine ' release but that wouldnt have been hard!,so its a passable vocal performance no more,nothing to do with the production,Geddy's gettin' old. Packaing on the CD is pretty cheap,when was the last time you got a loose booklet?
So whats to like? well disc 1,for me, is covering many tracks from my least liked period,so it drags a bit doesnt all flow,for me, amazingly an underwhelming opening with(personal fav ) 'Subdivisions' before it kicks in with 'Big Money' & 'Force Ten',those 2 probably should have been the opener,the rest of thetracks dont really flow for me decent if perfunctory versions of the likes of 'Grand Designs/Territories etc,the disc closes on a bit of a high with 'Where's my Thing' and 'Far Cry'. probaly 3 stars for disc 1.
Disc 2, well this will be guided wether you liked the 'Clockwork Angels' release,i did,so i love disc 2 from start to finish,the ensemble enhances and isnt too intrusive,the band sound enthused,'alive' playing new material,a complete contrast,in my opinion to disc 1,,the Bass and guitar immense,some of Alex's solo's outstanding,this for me ,will be the go to disc from this release. 5 stars.
Disc 3 a pot pourri here,the end of the concert with a superb 'Dreamline' and enjoyable version of 'Red Sector A' whilst 'YYZ' takes on a new dimension with the ensemble. A thouroghly exuberant 'Spirit of the Radio' closes the show whilst the excellent encore brings a smile 'Tom Sawyer' & a ramped up version of 2112-overture/temples/finale,where Neil rampages around his kit in fine style. The disc then kinda peeter's out with bonus tracks tagged on,although its always a pleasure to hear 'Limelight' in any guise,here as a soundcheck. 4 stars.
So all in all not perfect by any means,taking an average per disc,i'll settle for 4 stars,its not going to beat the likes of 'Different Stages' but i'm happy with my purchase,i do think maybe 3 live albums in 5 years is pushing it and we're starting to tire of these releases,its not an event anymore,who knows,its upto you wether you purchase or not
