The Fountain OF Lamenth

Post by psupower » Mon Jul 26, 2004 12:46 pm

I just put this on at work and this song RULZ :evil:

How many here appreciate this song?

I wish RUSH would play a few sections of the song " In The Valley " but we all know that is very slim..

One of my favorites P.... If you notice... my screen name is 3 travelers... that should let you know how I feel about Caress of Steel. It's my little tribute to the Men of Willowdale :cool:

Caress of Steel eh?

There are some great songs on there alas let down by a poor production. Much as I love, the album sounds, no pun intended, Rushed. I think, with a little more time, they could have pulled out a cracker.

Personally, I love that one. The one I'm not keen on is I Think I'm Going Bald

I agree, I like them all except for the bald song. It just doesn't fit with the rest of them.
I remember watching in amazement as Geddy sang, played bass, and played the keyboards with his feet. I thought, "Who is this guy???"

Don't get me wrong, Bald isn't a bad song, it just sounds, to me at least, as if it was thrown together to fill in a space on the album.

I think it's more like.... smoke 6 joints and write a tune. I can live with that. New World Man was said to be a space filler on Signals... look how good that tune is.

However, they had had about ten years to hone their songwriting abilities before NWM
