An incredible stylistic leap for the band, the songs here incorporate reggae, percolating synth and even a new wave-tinged early '80s pop sensibility. "Tom Sawyer," the ultimate alienated-teen saga, is the album's best known song. "Red Barchetta" picks up where 2112 left off with futuristic, sci fi-oriented lyrics. The instrumental "YYZ" is as far into straight-up progressive rock as the band had ever ventured. Things get socio-political on the ominous "Witch Hunt," and a Jamaican flavor enlivens "Vital Signs." The increased reliance on synthesizers and sequencers would later become irksome to old school Rush fans, but on MOVING PICTURES, electronics are tastefully applied to further the group's musical vision, making for what just might be their finest batch of songs.

Moving Pictures - Rush

Created: 08/06/09
Every track on this CD is outstanding, from the opening riff of "Limelight" to the fade out on "Vital Signs". It's easy to see why this is Rush's best-selling title as it strikes an easy balance between the "prog-rock" Rush of the 70's and the synth-driven Rush of the 80's. It's hard to pick my favorite song on the disc, but I'll go with "Vital Signs"; I love the reggae rhythm and the lyrics.

As far as where this title fits in the Rush canon, I think it really depends on where you're coming from. For a novice to the group, this is probably the best place to start--you're hearing the band in its prime. For the Rush fan, it's definitely top 5, but your other top albums may be from any era: early prog Rush, classic rock radio Rush, synth-driven Rush, back to basics Rush. Here's how my list looks:

1. Hemispheres (La Villa Strangiato, The Trees!)
2. Moving Pictures
3. 2112 (title track, Something for Nothing)
4. Counterparts (Animate, Between the Sun and Moon)
5. Power Windows (Manhattan Project, Marathon, Middletown Dreams)

On any given day, I could plug in "Permanent Waves", "A Farewell to Kings" or "Grace Under Pressure" to replace one of the other titles on my list.

Overall, I think "Moving Pictures" is probably the album with the broadest appeal to rock fans without being too indulgent.

Rush: Moving Pictures

Created: 29/08/10
The first four tracks on this CD are some of the band's finest. My personal favorite is 'Limelight'. This album has a greater use of keyboards than previous works--played by Geddy Lee, I believe. Vital signs is also very good; it has a reggae-quality to it. 'Witch Hunt' has great baseline, but is lyrically dull.

Very Nice album . Starts with Modern Day Tom Sawyer and Doenst stop Rocking until the end. Only has Seven songs but each song is over five minuets long with tantalizing solos, bridges, key/tempo changes..... I thought of it as Progressive Rock of thier day. Way ahaead of thier time I think.

I was around when this music was first released. I did not pay much attention as I was otherwise obsessed with other sounds. I came across Dream Theater by chance and as I investigated this band they noted the influence of Rush in terms of composition and skill on bass, guitar and drums .This the music I believe they were referencing. This music is timeless.
