The boys have talent beyond compare.
Bought tickets last night for Grand Rapids!
It'll be my 5th Rush experience
Permanent Waves was my first
For a bunch of Kanucks..
These guys are BADASS!!!!
@ 8:14 i get pretty frickin happy.
Niel Peart is a genius lyricist. Just saw rush in Dallas for the Clock Work Angels tour and it rocked! Their music inspired me through the 70's and I will always be grateful to them.
My fav band of all time. Just started learning the electric about a year ago and I'm learning/try i n g to play YYZ. Difficult but I'm enjoying it.
One of the best deep cuts Rush has. Awesome Pandora!
This song is incredible. Especially when you consider only 3 amazing musicians made this!
this is MATH!
Nice deep album cut for us Rush geeks as opposed to Tom Sawyer and Limelight for the masses. Well done, Pandora.
I was starting to doze off, and then this song came on. Scared the living s**t outta me. And then I was like, "hey, this is pretty awesome!!" So, yeah.
Segway to Zanadu
One of the baddest bass lines known to man!!!!

OH, SWEET GOD! What an intricately brilliant song.
Just can't get past that guy's voice...the music is awesome.
I have not missed a Rush Concert since back in the 80's . They never cease to amaze me. The first album I ever purchased was 2112. I used to hear it side to side with the headphones on. Their last effort was awesome . They are the greatest 3 piece band ever. As for being underrated. I honestly dont think they worry about it. They chose their path, are playing the music they want to ,have toured the world time and time again. They have had a career spanning 30 Plus years. This is something some o
They were my first concert in 82 they were my sons first in 07 they are even better now!

I agree Walter, Rush is one of the most underrated bands of all time...which is a real tragedy. They are simply amazing and this song goes to show just how talented they are! Love Cygnus X-1!!!!
The lyrics are totally not abstract. "Prominent Bass Riffs" should be up there, just for the bass intro.
Rush is the most underrated bands in the world. They deserve better.
