Next album - concept album or not?

Post by Amarok » Wed Aug 23, 2006 1:24 am

Hi ladies and gentlemen!

After reading some posts in which there was the start of a discussion, whether RUSH should do a concept album once more or not, I bring this to a question to everyone of you.

What do you think: Should the three try another concept album or not?

Geddy Lee said in the 2003 interview in R30 that they don't have the energy to do another concept album,but hey,you never know what they can pull out?

BTW,i got my hands on a extremely interesting vid of Rush in the 70s:) pm me if you want the link.

Personally, I'm of the opinion that another conceptual piece is highly unlikely.

It was during their 70s art rock phase that they went for the conceptual pieces which was 30 years ago. To do concept piece now could be seen as a step backwards and, if anything, Rush have always been about progress and moving forward.

of course, if they did do another concept piece I wouldn't complain.

Neil characterized the songs written so far as "spiritual" so I don't think it lends itsself to concept. I could be wrong, though.

After "Freeze", I don't agree.

Fear should be kept at bay.

That's different.

I would like to see another part of the "Gangster Of Boats" trilogy.

It's wierd how "Where's My Thing?" was part IV of a trilogy eh?

I think it's all a big piss-take.
