Great fun here! A lot like Magnum, but a bit more of everything. Better musical dress. Still mostly fun, and a forerunner to the light melodic heavy metal. And maybe 10% Led Zeppelin. But Rushs singer? Dont like very much...

-Prog-rock untied from it's lengthy experimentation-

The sounds of the 80's are audible here. it is produced tightly and makes Rush fresher than ever. The songs are shorter compared to the 70's epics. Rush squeezes everything in smaller turn on a dime progressions. Tom Swayer had enough hit sensibility.
YYZ is an absolute idiotic exercise in everything. Lifesons guitar chops, every time a new look at the same chords, are an anchoring for the madness Lee and Peart bring to the table. One of the greatest instrumentals ever.
The best Rush album.

I think Moving Pictures has one of the greatest Side A's of all time.

Neil Peart is amazing on the best song YYZ, the rest of the album is fantastic as well.

Has the feel of a typical 80s album, but with a lot more energy (good)

Some great songs by a technically superb band. A musicians band beyond my level of sophistication.

2112 is better but it contains a lot of very good tracks, would agree that the first four are very strong tracks.

There are some great songs here, with half the album being already familiar to most rock fans. But there's a reason you don't know the rest.

It is a close call for me between this one and 2112, both are masterpieces, possibly this one has the edge. Favourite tracks are are YYZ, Tom Sawyer and Witch Hunt. Both albums are in my top ten of all time.
