Rush – Moving Pictures (1981)

Rush are one of those bands that seem to command infinite respect but who’s legacy has somewhat sailed me by. I’ve also had a lot of time for the rhythm section of this band, but asides from giving 2112 a go a few times, its not really been for me.

Moving Pictures (which shares a title with an hilarious Discworld book) suffers the same fate. I just cannot get into it. Shit, this thing leads with “Tom Sawyer”, easily one of the greatest songs of all time, and I still find myself getting a bit bored with it. Rush aren’t bad, but as I said, I just don’t think they are for me.
