Customer Review

on 29 February 2008
Rush have been through many different stages. Each has its own fans and critics, they are not a band for the feint hearted nor do they do things the easy way. Many felt that they reached their peak with Moving Pictures before gradually getting buried under layers of keyboards and over dubbed vocals.

However, recent albums have seen a more cut back approach with an increasingly raw edge. Snakes and Arrows sees the band re-vitalised with an exciting young producer and cutting edge lyrics from Neil Peart.

Highlights for me have to be the two instrumentals obviously with the gloriously named Malignant Narcissism only at fault by being too short. Live the songs came over as powerful and amazingly relevant, contemporary pieces. Lee's voice which isn't too everyone's taste has few peers when it comes to portraying emotion and in pieces like "Working Them Angels" he hits a peak few could match.

This is a fine addition to the Rush catalog and many fans put off by the excesses of some of the late eighties / early nineties albums would find much to marvel at here. There is plenty of the musical eloquence that has always been associated with Rush but this is also something fresh vibrant, after all these years.
