Rush Newbie


Today I bought my first Rush album, Moving Pictures (1981).
Steve, if you are reading this, I remember you telling me about these guys a very long time ago. Well, I finally get it! Rush are FREAKING AWESOME! Right now I'm listening to the album for about the ninth time. It ends, then I immediately replay it from the beginning. It has completely mesmerised me. I want to stay up all night listening to this album!

*falls to floor in rapturous joy at having (even so belatedly - really should have taken cue from friend many years ago!) discovered such a totally freaking goddam AWESOME band*

Ha! That's the album I plan to get next! I gotta hear this 'Cygnus X-1' track :]

Cygnus X-1 is pretty cool, it starts a story that is finished on side one of "Hemispheres"

I'm really looking forward to hearing it. Neil Peart's drumming on Moving Pictures is amazing, but from what I've read, his performance on 'Cygnus X-1' is widely considered to be his finest hour.
Anyway, I'm picking the album up after work today.
Right now I have an almost irresistable urge to make a pun about how much of a 'rush' it is being excited about a band again, but I won't. There's enough of those on Amazon :]
