Rush is, in my opinion, the greatest band on the planet. Of that I have no doubt. They're simply timeless.

Hehe, true. They're one of the most talented (and well known at thesame time) bands ever.

I don't really like the vocals though. I can stand them and all but better vocals and they would probably be my favorite band.

Yeah the vocals sound like a 15 year old guy who just got kicked in the nuts. HARD. But besides that, they are a good band.

Yeah, but I don't mind the vocals. The only thing I don't understand is how Geddy manages to sing Big Money while nailing that sweet-*** bass line.

**** you fingers! They were never my friends. I play with a pick, which I guess is a no-no.

I used to hate Rush with a passion, and now, I don't. I think they absolutely rule. I'm glad i wised up.

YYZ is an unbeleivable instrumental, has anyone heard Dream Theater's cover of it? Mind Blowing!

Considering that Dream Theater is more skilled than Rush (a very hard thing to do). I'd love to heard that.

I know It's all about the fingers, but where one of mine go, the rest go! The only way I might be able to finger-play is with the index and pinky, but my pinky's too weak.

And the only Rush song I can play is The Temples Of Syrinx.

this is off subject, kind of, but it has to do with rush..

better epic song
change of seasons

2112

Groove Man Stan
11-16-2004, 06:54 PM
Yeah. Totally. I'm glad I got into Rush while I'm young (I'm fourteen), so I can appreciate and learn all their stuff early in life.

11-16-2004, 06:55 PM
I don't know what you meant, but choose 2112!

You do know that The Temples Of Syrinx is just a part of 2112 right?

Ah man, that is a good question. A Change Of Seasons is an awesome song but I would have to go with 2112. 2112 is just an awesome song, not to mention a wonderful album.

Groove Man Stan
11-16-2004, 06:58 PM
Yes. Yes I do. I own the album.

I used to not like Rush, but that was also when I loved Nirvana...

However, now I really like the music, and I can even stand Geddy's voice. Neil Peart(sp?) is an amazing drummer, up with the best of them, and with Geddy playing great bass and Alex playing great guitar, they simply amaze me. A **** good band.

Geddy Lee's vocals are great, I think they fit the music real well. And his basslines are awesome. The guitar work is perfect, and Neil Peart owns on drums. They're a great band, and have a lot of talent. I both respect them and love their music.

Ok. im new to this.
I have heard a lot of fuss around Rush, i havn't heard any of there songs.
Which are some really good songs that i should listen 2?

Rush definately does rule. Geddy's voice is as unique as his bass tone. I like both. Niel peart is **** good too

In no particular order:

Limelight
Cold Fire
Totem
Red Barchetta
Earthshine
Vapor Trail
Roll the Bones
The Sprit of Radio
2112 (the whole thing)
Xanadu
Cygnus X-1 (part 1 and 2)
Rivendell
Lock and Key
By-Tor and the Snow Dog
Yyz
La Villa Strangiato
Red Sector A
The Big Money
Closer to the Heart
Nobody's Hero
Something for Nothing
Subdivisions

That's just off the top of my head.

All the members of the band are virtuosos who just have an amazing synergy with each other. I'm partially influenced by Alex Lifeson as a guitarist myself. That man can do everything. Classical, electric, acoustic, lead, rhythm, effects. He's one of the most innovative guitarists of our time.

reply to thread title: they sure do.

i have moving pictures(not too fond) and 2112(fuk yes, the greatest album created. every song owns there. lessons, something for nothing... and of course the masterpiece, 2112).

^^taking into consideration that i prefer the 2112 kind of stuff to the Moving Pictures kind of stuff, what else do you think i should get? is there anything else like 2112?

I don't see what people have against the singing. The early stuff is rocking and the newer stuff is beautiful (the album Roll the Bones for example. If you're one of those "omg leik rysh wood b good if their singing dint sing like a ****ing chipmunk" you'll love this album).

Someone I know told me Rush is similar to Placebo. I didn't believe them. True?

PepsiMetal

I'm not even going to ask how a 2004 thread was bumped.

I like rush, pretty good, but I'm not a "fan" of the vocals, although they're not bad as most people say.

I know It's all about the fingers, but where one of mine go, the rest go! The only way I might be able to finger-play is with the index and pinky, but my pinky's too weak.

Cliff Burton usually played with his index and pinky too. So yea, go for it. :D Although you'll need the rest of the fingers sooner or later probably.

I love Rush. Geddy's vocals don't actually bother me; I find that if I like a band with not-so-great singing, but I love the music enough, I can look past it to enjoy the music.

2112 Overture is such an amazing song, it's so epic.

My two favorite Rush songs are Limelight and Closer To The Heart. My friend showed my a video of them doing Closer To The Heart live, it was nuts! Geddy is so amazing on bass. Plus Neil Peart is an absolute beast behind a drumkit.

can anyone recommend some songs where neil peart shines? i've heard so much about him and i took a gander at 2112 and "the best of rush" CD's but his drumming to me, isn't particularly spectacular. it's much better than most, but im stil trying to see his awesomeness.

La Villa Strangiato has awesome performances on the part of all band members,not just Peart.

i love Geddy's vocals. i love that strange vibrato/tremelo that he does on songs like "Something For Nothing".

YYZ is an unbeleivable instrumental, has anyone heard Dream Theater's cover of it? Mind Blowing! Man, I hate when Dream Theater do covers. They always sound EXACTLY like the original, but faster.

And to the man who asked which album La Villa Strangiato is on, that would be Hemispheres.

I love La Villa Strangiato...


and as for drumming... check out a couple of his drum solos...

The solo on Rush In Rio is called O Baterista, and the solo on R:30 is called Der Trommler, if you're interested. Perhaps you could download them or something. They're fairly similar, just with different structures and a few different parts, but they're pretty good.
