5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Pictures -What a Classic, 16 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Moving Pictures (Audio CD)
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.

Rush are my favourite band, on balance, in company with Dream Theater and Pink Floyd (later material).........Yes and Genesis at their peak are up there too. I have often heard people assert that Moving Pictures is Rush's pinnacle release. In my view, the "middle period" that starts with Permanent Waves, through Moving Pictures, Signals, Grace Under Pressure, Power Windows and Hold Your Fire, also Presto isn't much of a dip - contains some of the best rock music ever created. Counterparts later came close to those albums. Anyway, when I consider all factors, Power Windows is the one that touches musical perfection and is better than every other Rush album. The sound and power ('scuse pun) they managed to achieve there, almost every song has goosebump sections, choruses. The expansive keyboards each time the sound explodes, occasionally achieved elsewhere such as Red Sector A or Afterimage, and Alex's textured power (oops again) chords that accompany the keyboards, give Power Windows a quality that even Moving Pictures got nowhere near, though to be fair Rush like no other band have evolved and experimented so one would not expect the same sound on each album. And all the better for it. Alex has growing arthritis, there may not be many further new albums to hear, but no-one has carved a musical niche like them. And Moving Pictures would be the best album by any other band.........but Power Windows is still their "summit" for me.
