For those of us who still mourn the failure of the SACD format, it's time to raise the flag for the saviour of high resolution music. And what better band to demonstrate the ability of the blu-ray format than Rush. Always known for their instrumental prowess as well as their knowledge and exploitation of studio technology it is almost as if their music has been crying out to be presented in this way. 2011 sees the overhauling of the Mercury years, last remastered in 1996. Some will question the need to revisit these albums again as the previous remasters were far from disappointing. But 15 years is a lifetime in technology and the changes that have taken place in this time have made the need to re-evaluate music in both an artistic sense and technological sense much more important then ever. CD is in it's demise (sadly and uneccessarily I believe) and SACD and DVD Audio captured a niche market but in reality they arrived 10 years too late and were unable to cut through the apathy of the music buying public.
Moving Pictures, being the biggest selling album of their career, was always going to be a good place to start. It kind of set a new style of music in motion for Rush with an added emphasis placed on keyboards but without pushing the major traits of their music to the back. It is a very intricately layered sound and even listening to the original LP there is so much detail for the listener to absorb. With the blu-ray format we are now able to experience a new depth of sound - 256 times the resolution of CD - and it stands to reason that those intricacies are now heightened to an astonishing level. Moving the sound into 5 channels has allowed the layers to expand and breathe and, in that respect, open themselves up to our awareness.

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.

Following the popular 'Permanent Waves,' Rush continued to build on their success that had been sown in the previous year. Although only seven tracks long, each one is packed with excellent musicianship and revealing lyrics. Standout tracks include the 10 minute extravaganza 'The Camera Eye' with its themes of paranoia and secrecy, and 'Whitch Hunt' detailing the superstitious nature of people towards their fellows. 'Limelight' is a high paced, energetic techno-rocker, and makes use of synthesisers which would be used to greater effect on later albums. Elsewhere, the instrumental, 'YYZ' shows the trio working fluidly as ever; Neil Peart's inventive drum work coupling with Geddy Lee's solid bass lines leaving scope for Alex Lifeson's thrilling guitar solos. As an album, Rush's greatest work was arguably this one, closely rivaled by '2112' & 'Permanent Waves,' and highlighting their underated sound and ability which are still largely ignored today.

I bought this Album when I was 14 and at 38 still listen to it regularly.

This was my introduction to Rush and in my opinion is the best by far.

It's an album that I never overplayed but find myself continuosly revisiting it time and time again and have never got tired of listening to it which I think emphasises how good it is.

This Album at the time was a very modern sound and still hold's its own emphasising it's impact at the time.

Pearts drumming is technically impossible and I still do the air drumming in the mid section of Tom Sawyer (I can't Help it).

You either Love or Hate Rush but the latter must have never heard this one. If you like good rock music (Not the Hair,teeth,Groin and Ego Stuff), musicianship, well thought out meaniningful lyrics and a dark undertone- this is for you.

I own the CD + bluray pack since several weeks now and already listened it several times.

The bluray multi-channel soundtracks sounds amazingly on my system (Onkyo TX-SR608 amplifier + KEF KHT-3005 SE speakers). Both PCM and DTS HD-MA tracks sound pretty identically and are a model of definition, instrument separation and equilibrium. I didn't notice significant differences between PCM and DTS HD-MA soundtracks; surround effects are well present but could be too discrete to some listeners (well this can be corrected by pushing up the volume of the surround speakers). Ortherwise, the high rez stereo PCM track is to forget as it doesn't offer more than a classical CD does (not a big problem as the multichannel tracks already make the job).

Nothing to say about the CD. It sounds exactly the same as the 1997 remaster.

In conclusion, I recommend the CD + bluray combo to every Rush fan who wants to discover again this fantastic album in 5.1 (a respectable and well-calibrated 5.1 system seems to be required to fully enjoy the experience). For those who don't have a 5.1 system, I see no reason to buy the Deluxe edition (either DVD or bluray combo) as the CD sounds exactly as the regular version of Moving Pictures (1997 remaster).
