OK, duh, got it.

"Usually a case of malignant narcissism is brought on during childhood"

Absolute truth in diagnosis.

Yes, that's a line from the movie, "Team America" by the guys who wrote South Park. Matt and Trey are buddies of Neil and the gang.

That's why you got the South Park intro at the concert too. :-D

That which is old can be new again in a different light.

**shields self from thrown debris and rotten veggies**

The way I look at bands is that they should grow and mature their sound. IF they cannot they are washed up and should just stop if they can't bring anything new to the table, Fortunately for me S&A and vapour trails really wowed me (even despite vapour trails bad production) and this leads me to believe the afforementioned to be the case for rush. As for rushes really old stuff RUSH and Caress of Steel don't really do it for me to say the least. Good but not amazing.

Caress of Steel not amazing!!!

IMHO

The fantastic story in Caress of Steel, set to music is more than amazing.

It's Genius.

I love that album too.

The first album didn't do much for me though.

But it's so raw, the birth of a nebulous band!

I agree with Elfie. The first album is not good.

A few of the songs yes, but as an entire album........................sadly no.

And that's fine. They were kids back then. Kids that could ROCK, mind you. But they had a lot to learn about song writing (as do I). The addition of Neil, both as a drummer and as a lyricist is really what took the band to the next level (IMO). :)

But when I play that album I get a priceless feeling of nostalgia and longing for the past. I still remember first listening to it with a buddy in 1975. Basement jam room. Posters of Alice and Sabbath on the walls. We thought (and probably were) the coolest kids around because this was our heavy metal secret, and we were listening the HELL out of it. Imbibed it.

The first album may have been raw and possibly infantile, but to some it was and is still magic. :-)
