Album Discussions / Reviews
« on: November 19, 2004, 15:42:32 PM »
Many moons ago (nearly two years now), we did a weekly album discussion.

This thread will have links to all the discussions so new members can have a read / add their views should they wish.

Well.  A forum move removed a whole chunk of links and piccies, so I'm going to have to rebuild this as and when.  Can't remember if solo efforts were included before, but they are now if I find them . . .

Rush
Fly By Night
2112
All The World's A Stage
A Farewell To Kings
Hemispheres
Permanent Waves
Power Windows
Roll The Bones
My Favourite Headache
Victor
Vapor Trails
Live in Rio
Feedback
Snakes And Arrows
Retrospective III

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

If any of the links don

Unfortunately, I think they all don

Anybody got a link to the official VT review thread? I've been meaning to post a review for about 6 years.

It's time.

Maybe it's a good time to start all over again? Wouldn't be surprised if the review threads were buggered anyway.

1 album every 2 weeks?

I've rebuilt what I could, but there's quite a few I can't find (Signals, Hour Fire, Counterparts, Moving Pictures, and more).

They are - about 99% of my epic Power Windows review appears to have been wiped.  :o

I'll have to do another one, all over again.

What a shame.  ::)  ;)  ;) ;D   ;D   ;D   ;D

Feck arse bastard. 

Still - I suppose I get to wax lyrical about Hold Your Fire again.

Any excuse. :)

Talking of album reviews Slim, i was reading your views on RUSH's work on your blog, and was wondering why you hadn't got around to doing them all, in particular Permanent Waves?

Laziness and procrastination, Rob. Appreciate the interest, though.
