Default RUSH

They made a lot of good music, some not so good. This is only my opinion and Im not being a RUSH basher or a negative nelly, but this is terrible Rush - Stick it Out - YouTube. I would catagorize it with roll the bones and a few others.

Every Rush record has a couple of gems. This might not be one of them.
I like it.

This came out during the Grunge era. It was a heavier record, moving away from Power Windows and Presto with all the synth.

Just about any other song on that album is better than the one you picked, except perhaps "the speed of love" The quality on that youtube clip is seriously bad. Worse than "vapor trails"

They might be someones gems somewhere. I cant find a rhythm anywhere in there. I had no way to sample the clip, my apologies. I figured since they took the time to add the cover it would be one of the better uploads.

I've heard it said that people either love Rush, or they hate Rush.

I disagree. Like the OP, I like some of their stuff. In fact, I love some of their stuff. A large portion of it, however, I just can't seem to get into, no matter how many times I try.

YYZ is one of my all time favourites. Talk about a tight group. All that from 3 guys. Impressive.

I like the band, not their music so much. Does that make sense?

The Trees was up there but Geddy's voice scared me away for the most part. Great interviews especially Neil, and they did a heck of a job with just three of them. Alex, I don't really know about.

I started listening to them in mid 80s

Alex's solo in Chemistry (~3:58) is awesome.

There's no denying all three are superb musicians. Texas was always a big supporter of the band, at least after Neil P took over drums and lyrics. My favorite of their albums is probably, A Farewell To Kings.
