One of the first Rush songs I heard. It still sounds absolutely amazing, almost as good as Speed of Love. ;D

We're off.

Bastille Day - one of the first things I ever heard by Rush (the ATWAS version) and I remember thinking "What the f*@k is this?".

Absolutely bloody marvellous.

I really really love the guitar sound on this record. Warm and soulful, but still dynamic.

Slim

The production is utterly brilliant on this album - the doubletracked guitar and the almost architectural, restrained, gothic feel - it's no mere heavy rocker, this.  There's SO much to this song - so much going on in the songwriting, and so much power too.  Fabulous.  Now wonder I lost control of my bladder when they opened with this at my first Rush gig 8)

They HAVE to bring this back for the tour - it would lift the roof off.

Arto, are you still there? LOL I think you hate Geddy's voice on this album, right?

I've got nothing against it. Great singing from the man!

Eya

Not the best but - yes- real  great opener !

Lyth

My favourite part is coming up soon -the totally OTT pomp out ending.

Blimey, this is a great song.

Here we go...

ITIGB - Why does everyone hate this? Okay the lyrics are mince but this is such a great piece of music. Nice guitar work from Alex.

Bastille Day.

This is a bit of a culture shock after CP!

Great song, but the studio version doesn't ring my bell as much as the live version on DS disc 3. The accoustic guitar at 2.00 sounds lame compared with the live groovefest.

2.30 - with Neil chugging on the drums - is nice.

Neil's triple flams from 3.30 are lovely, and impossible to do. I know, I've tried.  :-[

A lovely NP march around the kit in the encore.

Best last note in the whole Rush canon? Plenty of bile in it!  :)

Slim

Beautiful, controlled, crisp rhythm guitar - he really had a master touch back then.  And wonderful, trebly reverby sound on the riff.  But most of all, such an inspired, powerful, composition.

Just brilliant.

Sary

Nice how it goes into these slow sections at times...

Okay that was a wonderful start, now it's hair time... LOL

That, as the young 'uns of today say, would be AWESOME!
