I wonder what Mark Putterford would say about it now?

Signals was the first RUSH album that i bought when it was actually released, and i've always loved it, in fact i've been playing it a lot this week, and i think it's a RUSH album that can't really be put into the same baracket as any other one, it's on it's own. I agree that Lerxst doesn't get to contribute as much guitar work as he probably would have liked, but the bass playong, and drumming are top drawer on Signals. Can't believe it's 24 years old now though.

Hated it initially, loved it after three listens.

The perfect soundtrack to life in Walsall for a 14 year old boy.

It was very good.

Birmingham NEC May 14th 1983 - my first ever Rush gig and I also (along with a few others) got to meet Geddy and Alex afterwards.

Which was nice.

I was really Rush mad at that time  ;D and played Signals over and over. I remember seeing them live for the first time at Maple Leaf Gardens not long after the album was released. Great seats, Golds down a bit, on Ged's side!

The Weapon.

<-Sigh->
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light<br />Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life<br />All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside<br />When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

Fun fact: Signals was released closer to the end of World War 2 than to today.

Yes; it being swathed in exceptional songs and loads of synths does that.  ;D ;)

You can't polish a turd no matter how many synthesizers you use . Live was a different story though ,unfortunatley the coo shed at Ingliston was a poor choice of venue (soundwise) as a mate at the time said "2 nights in a shite shed " strangely enough I'm listening to The Weapon from the last night "Mad Cows & Scotsmen " to be precise
