Canada, 1981, progressive rock / hard rock

RushMoving Pictures: I can’t think of a stronger hard rock opener than the classic mega-hit “Tom Sawyer”, and 80s Rush is all right sometimes, but you know what, for me nothing touches the duo of A Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres. I guess I’m bringing this up because whenever you mention Rush, someone immediately mentions “Tom Sawyer”. Yeah, ok. That’s a great song. But if when I say Rush you don’t immediately think “Cygnus”, you and I are hearing different things.

One thought on “

  1. I used to think I liked Rush. Then I realized I just loved “A Farewell to Kings” and “Hemispheres”, with a fondness for “2112”. “Moving Pictures”, despite the “Tom Sawyer” song, does not rate.
