Rush really seemed to know what they were doing on Grace Under Pressure.I'm only 12,but Rush is my favorite band.The album shows Geddy Lee can really work well with a synthesizer.Also,Alex Lifeson's guitar solos are more complex than they used to be.There was also a first for Rush on this album.Neil Peart's usage of electronic percussion.I noticed while listening to this album there are electronic drums on every track.Grace Under Pressure just shows that Rush has moved on.I also wrote a review onPresto if anyone wants to read it.Was this review helpful?

This album changed my life when I was a teenager. Being a lifelong Led Zep fan I was looking for something new to listen and my friend took me to a Rush concert in Madison Square Garden a few years later. I had never seen anything like that show. Then I bought Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows and never looked back again. This album has some hard rocking titles, like 'The Enemy Within' and 'Red Sector A' - plus it also has one of the most beautiful rock songs ever, 'Afterimage' which touches me a lot everytime I hear it. These guys are the ultimate rock performers in the world and this album represents their 80's era very well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is essentially the darker counterpart to Signals. It's in the same vein - progressive synth-rock with the Rush touch. It always puzzles me that this one is often badly reviewed or overlooked altogether, since it hasn't a bad song on it. There are a lot of synthesizers, but in spite of this, 'Distant Early Warning', 'The Enemy Within' and 'Kid Gloves' rock as hard as anything the band ever did. Recommended for anyone who enjoyed Signals.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
