Rush - Fly by Night (1997) Retail CD
This is an often overlooked classic by the great Canadian Trio.Neal Peart made his Rush debut on this album, and the differences were immediately apparent: more intricate drums, more percussion, more thoughtful lyrics. After the 100% full-on rock of their eponymous first album, some of the mellower moments on this one must have caused quite a stir when it was first released. However, "Anthem" kicks off in time-honoured style - a superb rock track. The next two songs are also fairly straightforward heavy fare.Then we get "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" (surely the silliest title in Rock?) - not justmore… a brilliant vehicle for a guitar vs. bass duel, but possessing an atmospheric middle section ("Across the River Styx"). Thankfully, the guys have recently brought most of this track back into their live set (check out the great cartoon on the Rio DVD). "Rivendell" is about as mellow as they come. I first listened to this in my teens whilst reading Tolkien's LOTR and Silmarillion for the 1st time, and this spacious music (and indeed much of Rush's earlier music) fits in with my imagination of Middle-Earth much more than the pseudo-celtic claptrap that they used on the recent LOTR films.Closer "In the end" has one of those deceptively simple great guitar riffs that you've just *got* to learn to play.And if none of the above impresses you - just buy it for the gorgeous cover art!
