Moving Pictures ~Rush | Then and Now

Moving Pictures was Rush’s 8th studio effort and continued to blaze the band into stardom. Three of my all time Rush songs are found on this record, “Limelight”, “Red Barchetta” and “Tom Sawyer”.  I’ve always felt that combining the hits from Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures would have made the ultimate album.

Listening to Moving Pictures today, you can’t get away from the dated aspect of the album, but you don’t really care.  When you give this album a spin, you know are going back to hear some great songs.  Alex Lifeson’s guitar solo on, “Limelight” alone is worth the travel back to 1981.  And speaking of, Lifeson claimed that solo was his favorite to play live.
