Roll the Bones - one of Rush's finest moments.

What can I say about it? Great songs, not a single dud among them, although I particularly rate Roll the Bones, Heresy, Ghost of a Chance and Neurotica. The performances are fantastic and are really brought out by a beautifully crisp production. The cover is great. I just can't praise the album enough.

RTB is definitely one of my faves, i especially like Bravado, Dreamline, Ghost of a Chance, Where's My Thing?, and You Bet Your Life. i love the sound of the guitar on this'un & the bass is quite a bit more prominent than on some previous albums.

Good album. I went to see Rush for the first time on this tour.

My faves are The Big Wheel and Bravado.

IMO Roll the Bones was an inflection point for Rush. I like HYF and Presto but RTB put Rush back in the right direction, with more guitar oriented music (or to put another way, more Alex!).

More Alex is a good thing. His guitar is so rockin'! Too bad more people don't realize that.

RTB's is one of my least played albums. Sure there are individual moments of brilliance but it rarely gets a listen these days. Sorry.

Well it would be boring if we all liked the same. At least you're willing to accept that other people like it.

I love the cover artwork on this album. One of my faves. Quite amusing.
