Their first few albums were rather pedestrian hard rock, but the addition of Peart in 1974 prodded the group into a more complicated, heavy art-rock mode: King Crimson and Yes meet Led Zeppelin.,"The Trees," metaphorically addressing the Quebec secessionist movement (off of 1978's #47 HEMISPHERES) became a controversial rock-radio hit. The 1980 album PERMANENT WAVES (#4), containing two substantial AOR hits with "Freewill" and "Spirit of the Radio" (#51), marked the beginning of a golden period for the band, which peaked with the #3 followup MOVING PICTURES.,Rush briefly flirted with a more synthesized sound, sublimating the band's natural interplay. Fortunately, recent albums indicate Rush is back in top form with PRESTO and ROLL THE BONES. ~ Rick Clark ---------- Related Artists ----------- Voivod Primus King's X Galactic Cowboys ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Cream Led Zeppelin Yes Hendrix, Jimi ---------- Bibliography ---------- Harrigan, Brian |Rush |Omnibus Banasiewicz, Bill |Rush Visions: The Official Bi|Omnibus AMG Artist ID # : P000005323 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Counterparts |1993| | | | OK Rush |1991|Reprise |26794 |R | Good Roll the Bones |1991|Atlantic |82293 |R | BestA Chronicles |1991|Mercury |838936 |R T|+BestA Presto |1990|Atlantic |82040 |R | Chronicles |1990|PolyGram |082765 | | Presto |1989|Atlantic |82040 |R T| BestA Off the Record |1989|Westwood O| | | Show of Hands, A |1988|Mercury |836346 |R T| Good Big Money |1988|Atlantic |8707172 | T| Off the Record |1987|Westwood O| | | Hold Your Fire |1987|Mercury |832464 |R S T| Good Off the Record |1986|Westwood O|86 | | Through Camera |1985|RCA/Columb|60466 | | Power Windows |1985|Mercury |826098 |R S T| Good Grace under Pressure |1985|PolyGram |080103 | | Off the Record |1984|Westwood O| | | Grace under Pressure |1984|Mercury |818476 | S T| Good Signals |1982|Mercury |810002 |R S T| BestA Off the Record |1982|Westwood O| | | Off the Record |1981|Westwood O| | | Moving Pictures |1981|Mercury |800048 |R S T|+BestG Exit Stage Left |1981|Mercury |822551 |R S T| BestA Rush/ Fly by Night |1980|Mercury |9111065 | | OK Rush through Time (Comp) |1980|Mercury |6331171 | S | Permanent Waves |1980|Mercury |822548 |R S T| BestA Innerview with Jim Ladd |1980|Inner View|18 | | Hemispheres |1978|Mercury |822547 |R S T| Good Closer to the Heart (12 Inch) |1978|Mercury |12 | S | Archives |1978|Mercury |22553 |R | Good Farewell to Kings, A |1977|Mercury |822546 |R S T| Good All the World's a Stage |1976|Mercury |822552 | S T| Good 2112 |1976|Mercury |822545 |R S T| BestA Fly by Night |1975|Mercury |822542 | S T| OK Caress of Steel |1975|Mercury |822543 | S T| OK Rush |1974|Mercury |822541 | S T| OK Story of Kings |Z |Arabesque |4055 | | Show of Hands Video |Z |PolyGram |041760 | | Red Sector A |Z |Mercury |870717 | | Marathon |Z |Mercury |870717 | | All-Music Guide Album Details (Alphabetical Order) ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 2112 Artist : Rush Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #061, entered Oct 2 , 1976, on charts 034 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 38:46 min Date : 1976 (release) AMG ID : R000017123 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822545-2 1976 LP Mercury 1079 CS Mercury 822545-4 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Rush's first successful stab at a concept album.

AMG ID : R000188404 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- In an attempt to retain its core adolescent audience, Rush revamps its sound on COUNTERPARTS to fit into the scheme of the "alternative" modern rock of the 90s. Naturally, it's only partially successful since they can not abandon their trademark progressive rock. Where the change-up is most noticeable is how the band's sound is more muscular and powerful, recalling their earlier efforts. ~ All-Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Exit Stage Left Artist : Rush Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #010, entered Nov 14, 1981, on charts 021 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 73:03 min Date : 1981 (release) AMG ID : R000017133 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822551-2 1981 LP Mercury 7001 CS Mercury 822551-4 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- A good live collection, possibly the best of their three such releases. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Spirit Of Radio Red Barchetta YYZ Closer To The Heart Beneath, Between And Behind Jacob's Ladder Broon's Bane Trees, The Xmas In Australia Freewill Tom Sawyer La Villa Strangiato ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Farewell to Kings, A Artist : Rush Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #033, entered Sep 24, 1977, on charts 017 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 37:13 min Date : 1977 (release) AMG ID : R000017124 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822546-2 1977 LP Mercury 1184 CS Mercury 822546-4 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Rush continues to explore their sci-fi fantasy themes and lofty concepts with this effort, which featured "Closer to the Heart," a substantial FM rock hit that also went #76 pop. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Farewell To Kings, A Xmas In Australia Closer To The Heart Cinderella Man Madrigal Cygnus C-1 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Fly by Night Artist : Rush Rating : OK Charts : Billboard #113, entered Mar 15, 1975, on charts 008 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 37:29 min Date : 1975 (release) AMG ID : R000017120 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822542-2 1975 LP Mercury 1023 CS Mercury 822542-4 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Anthem Best I Can Beneath, Between And Behind By-Tor & The Snow Dog Fly By Night Making Memories Rivendell In The End ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Grace under Pressure Artist : Rush Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #010, entered May 5 , 1984, on charts 027 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 39:31 min Date : 1984 (release) AMG ID : R000017142 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 818476-2 1984 LP Vertigo 12 CS Mercury 818476-4 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Distant Early Warning Afterimage Red Sector Enemy Within, The Body Electric, The Kid Gloves Red Lenses Between The Wheels ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Grace under Pressure Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Type : video Date : 1985 (release) AMG ID : R000087338 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- PolyGram 080103 RCA 60607 1985 Polygram Video 080 103 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Hemispheres Artist : Rush Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #047, entered Nov 18, 1978, on charts 021 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 36:07 min Date : 1978 (release) AMG ID : R000017127 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822547-2 Mercury Srp-1300 1978 LP Mercury 3743 CS Mercury 822547-4 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Includes the FM hit "The Trees," which can be found on CHRONICLES.

The trio's active ensemble work reached new levels of interplay. "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," "Red Barchetta," and the instrumental "YYZ" are standouts. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums Hugh Syme - Keyboards -------- Album Tracks -------- Tom Sawyer Red Barchetta Yyz Limelight Camera Eye Witch Hunt Vital Signs ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1981 (release) AMG ID : R000017135 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1982 (release) AMG ID : R000017138 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1984 (release) AMG ID : R000017143 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1986 (release) AMG ID : R000017145 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR 86-4 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1987 (release) AMG ID : R000017146 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Off the Record Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Date : 1989 (release) AMG ID : R000017148 --------- Album Releases --------- Westwood One OTR ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Permanent Waves Artist : Rush Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #004, entered Feb 2 , 1980, on charts 036 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 35:30 min Date : 1980 (release) AMG ID : R000017131 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 822548-2 CS Mercury 822548-4 1980 LP Mercury 4001 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- The cumulative effect of endless tours and obvious growth with each studio effort, Rush hit it big with this effort, delivering with their best material to date. "Spirit of the Radio" (#51), "Freewill," and "Entre Nous" (#110) were big FM rock hits. "Jacob's Ladder" was another highlight. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Erwig Chuapchuadua - Guitar (steel) Geddy Lee - g/k/b/v Alex Lifeson - Guitar Neil Peart - Drums Hugh Syme - Keyboards -------- Album Tracks -------- Spirit Of Radio, The Freewill Jacob's Ladder Entre Nous Different Strings Natural Science ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Power Windows Artist : Rush Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #010, entered Nov 9, 1985, on charts 028 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 38:39 min Date : 1985 (release) AMG ID : R000017144 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 826098-2 CS Mercury 826098-4 LP Mercury 826098-1 1985 LP Vertigo 31 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- An improvement over the sterile techno-crap of the 1984 release GRACE UNDER PRESSURE.

From beginning to end, the arrangements reflect more straightahead rock playing than on any of their other albums. PRESTO contains some of Neil Peart's best lyrics, and along with MOVING PICTURES, smartly presents many of Rush's virtues in their best light. ~ Rick Clark -------- Album Tracks -------- Show Don't Tell Chain Lightning Pass, The War Paint Scars Presto Superconductor Anagram (For Mongo) Red Tide Hand Over Fist Available Light ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Presto Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Charts : Rock & Roll Disc #4/4 Genre : Rock Time : 52:18 min Date : 1990 (release) AMG ID : R000078475 --------- Album Releases --------- CD Atlantic 82040-2 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Rush's 13th album of new material shows this Canadian trio coming out from a succession of bloodless-sounding techno-excursions ... and going for a much more open, accessible sound. Overall, Rush lays down more straight-ahead playing on [it], from beginning to end, than any of their other albums. If you're looking for a good starting place to sample this band's music, "Presto" smartly presents many of Rush's virtues in their best light yet. ~ Rick Clark, Rock & Roll Disc. ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Red Sector A Artist : Rush Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock AMG ID : R000017114 --------- Album Releases --------- CD Mercury 870717-2 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Roll the Bones Artist : Rush Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #003, entered Sep 21, 1991, on charts 043 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 48:04 min Date : 1991 (release) AMG ID : R000017152 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1991 CD Atlantic 82293-2 1991 CS Atlantic 82293-4 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- ROLL THE BONES continues with the organic-sounding hard prog-rock spirit of PRESTO, and it's equally fine.
