Classic Rock, Hard Rock & Metal, and Rock album by Rush

WithMoving Pictures, Rush's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reached new heights. It's that rarest of creatures, a highly listenable progressive-rock album; even the all-instrumental "YYZ" is of interest to listeners besides musicians. The … see full wiki

I was around 11 or 12 years old and a veritable tomboy. I was in metal shop and my buds listened to Maiden, Priest, etc. One day--I think they had the radio on--I heard the most AWESOME song.

The sheer variety of styles in the album is amazing, …

I find it delightfully ironic that Rush, a band critics loved to hate, released Moving Pictures, the album I'm sure critics hate to love -- it had them eating their words, after all. An undeniably great album from those pretentious and nerdy progressive rockers? Yeah right! Seriously, it is difficult to contest this disc's perfection, which is the logical extension of its predecessor, Permanent Waves (it could very well be called Permanent Waves Part II). Moving Pictures is a highly engaging, accessible, …
