I hear you, Ai! This is rapidly becoming my favorite album. Counterparts is still #1 but I don't know for how much longer. I think what I like so much about VT is the lyrics. They are much more personal, like a glimpse in to Neil's mind, which we have never really had before except on a rare occassion. And some of the songs, like Freeze and Nocturne, just show me how The Guys aren't afraid to just get down and jam. The whole album just rocks! Cool

The thing I like so much about VP is that looser approach to the music than they have ever used before. It has a kind of jazzy or jam band feel to it at points, though it still retains the quintessential attention to structure and arrangement we've come to expect from the boys.

i much enjoy this album , the lyrics are amazing. I also like the drifting from solos, using different guitar techniques, and it seems they focus more highly on vocals, and once again show their great diversity of style

Hey Everyone! I was listening to the last part of the Fear series yesterday wodering if it's not the best part of the Fear series. Does anyone 'not' think it's the most forboding,challenging,gripping piece of music they've heard? Not that the other 'Fear' songs aren't great, but just like Freeze captures the essence of what the word 'fear' means. It's one of those songs that deserves to be set on 'continue' on the ol' CD player and listened to a few times in a row. Oh ok, just hit 'continue' for the whole CD. Great work A,G,N!!!

"Nocturne" has reasserted itself as a favorite...along with Secret Touch, and How It Is and Vapor Trails and One Little Victory and Peaceable Kingdom....

Aye, that's an interesting question...which part of Fear is the best. For the time being, I listen to "Freeze" the most, although musically, "The Weapon" is the most interesting and complex, while "Witch Hunt" is the most intense (and pertinent right now), and "Enemy Within" has a cool, groovin' feel. How's that for equivocation? (Ooops, sorry T, that was 5 syllables Wink Razz Wink )

I would vote for "The Weapon", but the only reason for is that I can say that is the one of them I like most. But "Freeze" is great, too.

Vapor Trails, one of their best albums ever for me. I think one reason therefor is not only the music, there is also the awaiting. We have waited for it for six years. Man, that's a long time.

There are some personal favorites on this album but I like all songs (there's a simile to all of their albums). My favorites: peacable kingdom, ceiling unlimited, earthshine.

Witch Hunt if by far my favorite. However, Freeze did come out of nowhere, and bolt into the number two slot of Fear songs for me.

I prefer Witch Hunt of the Fear series, but it isn't easy to pick one Rush song over another.

Kaelmwithwaaaaaytoomanysyllables! Watch out or you will lose your drumming ability! Wink (And yes, I know it is a stupid generalization that drummres are stupid, but I HAVE to tease anyway! Wink Do I have to do more penance now?)

VT is an awesome lp and I must say it geds repeated often in my van. I play it so much, I heard Eagle singing one of the VT songs yesterday. The lyrics have soaked in! Whoo-ya!

It sounds (dare i say it) nu-metal-ish to me. (Dont kill me. Razz ) But i really like it nonetheless. Ghost Rider is amazing, Geddy seems to of put alot into that one as far as his vocals go.

I saw an interview on rollingstone.com and Geddy said he worked really hard on that song. He wanted to give it justice for Neil. It was truly a labor of love he said. That alone makes it my favorite for "Geddy's Best Vocal Performance."
