Overview

Neatly chopping up the band's career into three segments, Rush's Sector series of box sets breaks the Canadian prog rockers' early musical legacy into easy-to-digest morsels. On Sector 2, we find the band transitioning from its early developmental period into mainstream success with the albums A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, and the live album Exit...Stage Left. This period of Rush's history finds the band gaining acceptance from a wider audience with songs like "Tom Sawyer," "Closer to the Heart," and "The Spirit of Radio" while still managing to push its sound into increasingly progressive territories with more complex arrangements, new styles of music, and a wider range of instruments. This remastered box set features these iconic records repackaged in scale replicas of the original vinyl LP jackets, and those interested in a new listening experience will want to check out the DVD-Audio version of A Farewell to Kings, which features both stereo and 5.1 Surround mixes of the album.
