Moving Pictures(1981) by Rush
Back to Rush, we have what is arguably their most successful and high rated album. This album has its reasons for being at the top of the Rush pedestal, like higher production value, more singles like Red Barchetta and Tom Sawyer, and its just a good album overall.
Including a total of seven tracks the first three or four may seem familiar to you if you know Rush well in terms of singles. Those tracks (in order) are Tom Sawyer, Red Barchetta, YYZ, Limelight and the Camera Eye. The Camera Eye is the epic on the album lasting for 11 minutes exactly. YYZ is the band`s first true instrumental which is supposed to represent the feeling of coming home. In fact the drummer, Neil Peart, was able to convert an airplane code in 5/4 time, amazing I know. Limelight and Red Barchetta are easy to recognize despite Tom Sawyer beating them in popularity. As for the last two tracks(Witch Hunt and Vital Signs), they are just as good as the rest. Sure they’re not exactly the most played songs in any concert, but what does that matter? Nothing is the answer. A perfect from one of the greatest progressive rock bands of all time. Thanks for listening and I give this album a 10/10
