I picked this up a few weeks ago and have been listening to it pretty
often. These guys never fail , very solid material as always. Nothing
thats gonna change the world , but definetly worth listening to and has some
really strong tracks. You always pretty much know what you are
going to get with theses guys. They are coming through here in Indy
in Sept. I am not sure if I will go ro not. I would like to ,but we will see.
I saw them for my first time on the Snakes and Arrows tour, I was blown away
how big there sound was coming for those guys on that stage, very impressive.

I will be seeing them in Bridgeport CT this fall. Rush does very the set list quite nicely from tour to tour, and they always feature the new album.

I totally agree this release goes back many years to the raw pounding progressive sound that has made RUSH the band they are. I have not missed a tour since 1980 and will see this one in St louis in Sept

I don't think it's too over-the-top for me to say that I think Clockwork Angels is a stunning, late-period masterpiece that Rush has created.

Been seeing Dirk, Pratt and Lerxst since the "Signals" tour and I will do so again this fall.

I've been a Rush fan since the debut album. Looking forward to hearing Clockwork Angels.

Bit of Rush trivia...Geddy Lee's given name was Gary Lee Weinrib. His parents were Jewish Polish immigrants and Holocaust survivors. Geddy's mother had a thick Polish accent, and when she would call him by name, it sounded like Geddy. By age 12, a friend started calling him Geddy and it stuck. He adopted it as his stage name, eventually changing it legally to Geddy.

Cool trio of guys and some of the best musicianship out there.

The first time I really "listened" to Rush, I was driving in my car, and Working Man came on the radio, I had never heard the tune before, I went out and bought there first album, and went from there. I really enjoy the new album, make sure you listen to it with headphones! My first Rush show will be in Manchester, NH, looking forward to it.

I think it's a very good album. Much heavier than most of their albums. The only thing I don't like on it is that Geddy continues to sing melodies with himself. He's been doing that for 3 albums now, as well as on his solo album, and I wish he would cut it out. My favorite tracks are Headlong Flight, BU2B and Caravan.

My the way, if you like Rush then check out the new Circus Maximus album - "Nine." It's a masterpiece. One of the top few albums I've heard in decades!

Here is a sample of Circus Maximus for you to check out:

They sounded pretty good, thanks.
Kinda reminded me of Sonata Artica in some ways. This type of music still plays out well in Europe.

Yeah I would have to agree on that one(listening to it now!!)

I would say since 1991 till now it is probably they're best release. I have always liked Counter Parts and Snakes and Arrows is very solid.
