Rush: Classic or Dud?

No one has asked this one yet (and I have a sneaking suspicion I know why, but I'll ask it anyway)...

What do you think of them crazy prog-rockin' Canadians, then? Super? Sucky? Somewhere in the middle? Please write your response in the form of a haiku.

Hi points - the drum beat of "Tom Sawyer" (as everyone knows by now), & one of the best fake-Led-Zeppelins ever in "Working Man" (great gtr solo!). Other than that, they can go & read the complete works of Ayn Rand. (I'd rather attempt to eat the entire works of Ayn Rand).

As a band: dud. As a rite of passage: classic.

I think Rush sucks. Any band where the drummer writes the lyrics is bound to suck. Do you know what RUSH stands for? "Running Under Satan's House." I did learn something in school... "Anti-Christ Devil Child," "We Are Satan's People,""Knights in Satan's Service," etc.

The good woman claims to like Rush, although I've never seen any evidence of this.

Dirty Vicar, Friday, 22 June 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

The only Rush track I've heard is 'The Spirit of Radio' from 'The Permanent Waves alb (1980). It was the nearest thing Rush had to a hit single in the UK (top thirty?) Now I don't know what Canadian radio was like back when this single was released, but English pop radio at the time, which for me basically meant Radio One, was horrendous. The 'Breakfast Show' was the station's prime time biggie, only entrusted to Radio One's biggest 'personalities'/tossers - Noel Edmonds, Dave Lee Travis, Steve Wright, all endlessly yakking over the few pop hits they played in-between their 'banter'. So the lyrics to 'Spirit of Radio', clearly written to suck up to radio station DJs, were not only v. horrible, but also a million miles from the truth. Here's the opening verse:

"Begin the day with a friendly voice/A companion, unobtrusive/ Plays the song that's so elusive/And the magic music makes your morning mood"

Dud for that alone.

I am proud to say that I once voted Rush the greatest band of the 80's. They had a lot of good moments, 'Xanadu' appeared in Tommy Vance's poll for the top ten rock tracks of all time throughout most of the 1980s. I think they peaked with 'The Weapon' on Signals (1982). They differed from their contemporaries in being more interested in playing around with the time-signature of their tracks. But ultimately, in an oft repeated pattern, instrumental virtuosity ceased to be musically interesting and just became self-indulgent.

Are you describing your personal development or that of the band? Because, if anything, the band got less and less showy as the years went on. "Counterparts" (the last one I heard) was even "grunge" influenced, allegedly. Rush was my favorite band all throughout high school.

i was at a party with some guys who were really entranced with some kind of video of stevie ray vaughn stranglin' the blues back in the '80s. doo-rags. these guys were such geeks, glued to the tube while there were girls to hit on and barbecue to scarf. then they got into "moving pictures," talking about the "production values" and saying things like "you can't deny the musicianship," while trying to be "ironic" about the whole stinkin' thing. typical night with people in nashville trying to be hip about not being hip or whatever that convolution is. then, everyone got drunk the host attempted to explain the shaggs to these geeks and everyone *listened hard and they got it*!! ahh. so, rush sucks and that's it, that's just like being "ironic" about kiss or worryin' about montgomery gentry, i think (as in the video where that goober takes off his cowboy hat to reveal an expensive-looking doo-rag/headwrap of some kind), and only the man upstairs can say whether rush is great or not...yes, rush did a record of covers i understand includes a version of eddie cochran's summertime blues done like blue cheer! so, they have roots like the rest of us, cuz.

He's implied as much. In the BBC "Prog Britannia" documentary he said that Yes made a few records that led up to The Great Album, which was Close To The Edge. Once they'd reached that, he felt his work was done, so he split. I think, though, that he very much preferred the atmosphere in King Crimson in which, as he put it, "almost nothing was said. You were just supposed to know what to do." This was in stark contrast to Yes' endless discussions along the lines of "Wait, but if you're playing F# in that section, shouldn't I be playing A? Or not?"

Yeah, I get the feeling that in Yes, with everything being intricately arranged, that certain members would have a tendency to get precious about their parts or their material etc. King Crimson seems more "free", I guess, the type of band where people have room to express themselves, even if Fripp is ultimately the gaffer.

but I've been trying to have beef with him for some time now so

Dominique, Monday, 10 April 2017 15:34 (three months ago) Permalink

I think Fripp and his approach are so disciplined that you have to sort of align with his vision to fit in at all, and once you do that (and assuming you have the chops) the rest is relatively "easy," albeit still rigorous. Whereas with Yes, yeah, the challenge is everyone fitting their little bits of the puzzle in, which is how you end up with frantic songs and complicated side-long epics. To Yes's credit (and I'm at best a casual fan) their tracks and epics all sort of cohere despite that, as opposed to a band like, say, Metallica, who is very much A -part, B-part, C-part etc.

Since this is a Rush thread I should say that I've always been amazed at Rush's ability to go compact and concise. All their parts just make sense, and that they can fit so many ideas in 5-minute, hook-filled songs is pretty incredible. But then, I only think of them as a nominal prog band with only a couple of albums that fit the part, imo.

Oh yeah, I have no doubt that Bruford is a little bit of a snob about certain things... I get the feeling that Bruford would find playing in a basic rock band where all the songs are in 4/4 beneath him, whereas Peart would have no problem with the idea.
