Although I've bought plenty of music from iTunes, like many folks around these parts, I much prefer to buy a hard copy as opposed to a digital copy whenever possible. But the pre-order price on Amazon is over $25. Their other albums are all around half that price.

What a stunning rendition! Thanks for sharing. Over the past year, I somehow feel like I rediscovered this song. I mean, I always liked it, but it might possibly be my all-time favorite Rush track - and it's especially near and dear to my heart after Neil's passing.

In the late '80s and early '90s (as they were writing the material for the first album), I think they wound up filling that musical space between the likes of Journey and Def Leppard. I have heard that they were pressured by the record company to soften their sound a bit for that debut album. Then, when they wrote and recorded "Mood Swings," I think it was more in line with the sound

I agree completely with Dave and Andy. It's easy to slam and/or dismiss much (most?!) AOR as "generic" or whatever, given much of the bland lyrical content (think Foreigner, Survivor, REO Speedwagon, Loverboy, even Journey). But I put the Harem Scarem debut up against pretty much any other AOR album. In fact, it may well be my all-time favorite AOR release.

I like John Bush a lot, and don't mind Joey Belladonna. But, in truth, Neil Turbin is my favorite Anthrax vocalist. To these ears, on Fistfull of Metal, he sounds a little like what Paul Stanley would sound like if he were to sing for a thrash band. I believe I read years ago that he had issues with anxiety when it came to performing live. Regarding this kid, Taj, all I can say is WOW! Con

When I hear of a musician passing away, I am usually a little saddened. But as others have said, given that I have no personal connection to them, it's not usually profound sadness or anything like that. However, I must say that Neil Peart's recent passing has definitely hit me harder than any other musician's passing. I"m not entirely sure why this is, but I suspect it has a lot to d

Thanks for sharing this. It's not among their better songs (IMHO), but they can pretty much do no wrong. I can't wait for this release.

This act is probably my favorite "new" band. And, while I like the first album, IMHO they took it to a whole new level as soon as Denis Ward became involved. Really looking forward to this!

Perhaps my all-time favorite VH song. How ironic is it that the original singer of the song managed to ruin it for me?! I swear, any drunk schmuk at a karaoke bar could do as well as this. It's truly cringe-worthy. As harsh as that sounds, I don't say it to be disrespectful. DLR, at one time, sounded pretty [email protected] great (at least on record). But oh, how the mighty have fallen. If I were

Yeah, I really enjoyed reading that as well. Thank you for sharing. Gonna have to dust off my copy of Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage this weekend. Love that rockumentary.

When I finally got my truck after two decades of dreaming, scheming, and (not-so-patiently) waiting, I was also really careful about parking away from everyone else when parking in shopping centre parking lots. Thirteen years later, there are a few dents and dings on the beast, but I'm still careful about where I park. I've gotta say though, that I've never been in the habit of taking up two sp

We experienced this two years in a row when central British Columbia was on fire during the summers of 2017 and 2018. It's very unsettling (street lights coming on in the middle of the day due to the extreme darkness) and my heart goes out to you and everyone else who's dealing with this tragic situation. Hoping for the best for you and your loved ones, Dave.

Yes, I hope all is well with Standing Hampton. And I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone from this board - regulars, hit-and-missers, lurkers, and especially Andrew - a very Merry Christmas. I'm also hoping that 2020 winds up being a happy, healthy, and memorable year for one and all! God bless...

Wow, I haven't had much time lately for music or reading this board. But this morning I just happened to check in and see this post! Love this track, and also listened to the other two. Strong stuff! Carl's vocals sound great, and the guitar work is soooo tasty! The solo from 1:59-2:27 in Can't Love a Memory is the best example I've heard in years of playing a solo to add to or enhance a

The 4-CD boxed set is great! Their first 3 albums are classics, but to be honest, the fourth album (Top Secrecy) is worth owning as well. I always liked this track in particular... Santers - Leigh Ann

Sorry to hear this, Preacher. My mom has had vascular dementia for the past three years. Thankfully, she wakes up happy every day, but we are definitely losing her slowly.

Fair enough. It's pretty hard to like a cover if you don't like the vocals. But personally, I do like 'em. I could do without the dramatic arm-swinging, etc., but I think she does the Legendary singer justice. Different strokes, I guess...
