It's funny 'cause I know Tool are heavily influenced by Rush and now it's like Rush are being influenced by Tool. I'm not saying this is a bad thing at all.
Even though Rush were pretty hit and miss for a long time, they are always unbelievable live. I still can't figure out where they hide the 3 other musicians. Maybe they're under the stage or something.

Just listened through the album twice and am pretty underwhelmed. Better than Snakes and Arrows, but I liked Vapor Trails better.All I know is that I don't know nothin'... and that's fine.

This record is a bit heavy for me but they are super tight. Haven't heard them compose shit this good since the early 90's.
Great to hear they are still rockin hard at their shows. I have only caught a few after the Roll the Bones tour. Too much cheesing out for me. This record seems to have sparked their roots more than their efforts over the last 15-18yrs.

Sucks getting old.

Last time I saw them was in 85'.

Honestly I find it too lyrics-heavy. There are many moments when I wish Geddy would STFU and they would just crank. Probably better live when they can do just that.

They played Tom Saywer and best of 2112 for the encore.
One of the kewl things you see at a Rush show is parents bringing their kids with them. Saw some pretty young kids with Dads.You are the mission Bob.

Ok, listened to it three times in a row up camping last weekend (Rush freak friend insisted). I like the first half, but then I start to get tired of the lyrics towards the end. Some really good stuff on it and they are really tight, but not a home run of a record. Still going to see them in November though.
And Neil needs to stop with the cheesy metaphors. It seems like every other lyric is: "Like a bla bla, in a bla bla bla."

Soooo ... Good show?

Yes, pretty good show overall. Geddy was a little off with timing of his lyrics at times and he (self-admittedly) can't really hit the highs anymore. The light show was off the hook. And one good addition was a giant screen on which they showed individual band members playing. That was nice as were weren't super close. So good show, but I've seen better Rush shows.
Not a fan of the arena venue though. They usually come through in summer and play amphitheaters. I enjoy that more.
