    An important chapter

    It seems to me that while Rush has always explored different areas with each album, there was usually a definitive move or break away about every 3 or 4 albums, and this was one of them. This album seemed to set the stage for the next couple that followed (and to a lesser extent, almost everything they have done since.) As mentioned in previous reviews, this was the first album to really make extensive use of keyboards (and the first where Geddy seemed really comfortable with them) and it was a remarkably smooth transition as an end result.

    The Last Of the Great Rush Albums

    There was a time when Rush was THE premiere Canadian rock band. They developed and refined a progressive & heavy rock sound that was unlike any other artist. Each album was better than the last, yet managed to explore new territory. The signature sound of each member of the trio playing in unison and then branching off in directions and reuniting again was powerful. The band reached its pinnacle with 1982's Signals. The band redefined its sound from a guitar/bass/drum to keyboard/guitar/bass/drum mixture. Musically, the band has never played off of each other better. The twenty minute soundscapes were boiled down to less than four minutes in some cases. Lyrically, the Neil Peart has never been better. Subdivisions, New World Man, and Losing It were as relevant then as they are today. This was the last album produced by Terry Brown and it certainly brings about the question of how important this man really was to the band's sound and development. I can't listen to much Rush anymore. Old age setting in, I guess. However, every now and again, I manage to sneak in Signals in between a Verdi opera, Beethoven sonata or Van Morrison CD. Although it may not be as grand or as relevant, it still sounds pretty good to these old ears.
