By S. Lornie TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 Jun. 2017
Format: Audio CD
The debut album from the Canadian rock band Rush was considered the second coming of Led Zeppelin. A three piece band equipped with a heavy blues rock sound and a singer whose voice sounded like a castrated Robert Plant. But when it came to the band's sophomore album Fly By Night, the band had already moved onto different sounds and made a completely different beast.

Looking at Fly By Night, there is very little similarities to the same band that released Rush the year before. With exception of the opening riff in Anthem, the album title track Fly By Night and a couple of moments in the closing In The End there are no exceptionally heavy riff driven songs on this record. In its place however is a band clearly maturing as musicians with a greater sense of melody and improving as song writers. It is clear with the addition of Neil Peart as a primary song writer that the lyrical content not only sounded more mature but improved considerably. There is also a lot more diversity coming out of Geddy Lee's vocals. He uses his trademark wail on multiple occasions but also takes the time to sing in a lower key making for a more bearable listen for those who dislike the ear piercing shriek from the debut album.

In terms of the music, Fly By Night is a lot more melodic. The acoustic guitars really come out to play here providing the album with some much needed variety, that of which was lacking on the previous record. The drums also improved with the decent John Rutsey now gone and replaced with the soon to be legendary Neil Peart. Though Peart and his fellow musicians aren't the master musicians that we know today, you can hear how they've improved in the space of a year with the more complicated rhythms challenging Alex and Geddy to approach their music with some extra thought.

This is where it really all started for Rush, one of the best bands to come out of the '70's. Yes, they already had one album under their belts, but that was a straight forward hard rock album, albeit a very good one. Here with a change of personnel was also a slight change indirection. John Rutsey, the original drummer left and was replaced by the professor, the great Neil Peart, one of the greatest drummers to ever beat the skins of a drum kit. Not only was Peart a far more accomplished drummer, bringing in more complex time signatures, he also brought with him his lyrical ideas. Whether or not you agree with all those ideas, especially those influenced by the right wing author Ayn Rand, they certainly added more depth to the song writing.

The album starts out with one of their classic rockers, Anthem, the first song to reference Rand (It was the title of one of her novella's and the story that influenced Peart when writing 2112). Whatever its influences this is a wonderful statement of intent to start the album, yes the introduction and chorus rock out but the verses take a slightly gentler course. The next two songs Best I Can and Beneath Between And Behind carry on in the harder edged end of the Rush universe. Side 1 (Yes I am that old) signs off with By Tor And The Snow Dog, the first of their forays into extended songs telling fantastical stories, something which they continued to so over the following four albums. Although not my favourite of their extended story telling (That award goes to Xanadu) this is still a wonderful example of prog rock. A tale of good versus evil as Snow Dog battles to save us all from the evil of Prince By Tor.

Review of Blu-ray audio version. 5 star music, which I've loved since getting the LP on release back in the mid-70s! The 5.1 mix is very good, but missing something compared to the earlier BDA releases of 2112 and Moving Pictures - both by Commercial Marketing and including a CD for a price lower than Pure Audio charge for the BD alone! There is less use of the surround channels here, and so the value of going 5.1 is reduced. However, it is still a world better than 2 channels! Another negative is the download via the Pure Audio website. I'm not all that into downloads, but IMHO this is a curious creature. The Rush website suggests this is a "320kbps MP4 vinyl ripped Digital Audio album download" and the file sizes are much large than simple wav rips from my CD. Yet the sound quality is quite poor and equivalent to mp3 rips - boomy bass with muffled sound through a decent system. Maybe it sounds better on a non HD portable device. Why not a high-res download for those who've paid the premium price for the BDA?

So... I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the BDA for anyone with a 5.1 system. But having had other slightly disappointing experiences with Pure Audio I do think they need to look at their approach.

Possibly my favourite Rush studio disc from the 70's,an album that i love as much today as i did back then.With Neil Peart on drums and lyrics the band moved up a gear,dungeons and dragons ,sword and sorcery would become the norm while expanding the Zeppelin/Sabbath like riffs.

From the opening 'Anthem' followed by 'Best I Can' the band have hit a groove which just rocks hard and brings a smile.The highlight of the disc ,of course, is the epic 'By Tor And The Snow Dog(fantastic title) a superb track which contains a wonderful bass/guitar battle sequence which confirms the talent of the musicians involved whilst everything held tight by the out of this world drumming of Peart.

Interestingly the other tracks 'Fly By Night','Beneath Behind Between' and 'Makin Memories are all quite commercial,rock n roll rather than heavy metal.
Sadly time hasnt been kind to 'Rivendell',hated it then,hate it now,that leaves the other highlight 'In The End' a fantastic ending to the album a simple but blues based rocker,which really ought to be reinstated in concert.

A stunning album(remember it was only their second) which deserves to be re evaluated,as good now as it was then,excellent stuff.
