QuoteGrand Designs - why oh why oh frelling why didn't they play this live? I would love to hear and see this performed live.This may sound a little strange - but I always hear it live in my head, if you can understand this.
QuoteU on Vapour is cool...but not on Favourite,me anyway,I guess this is where Ged and I will have to
QuoteI remember listening to Power Windows for the first time and thinking .. is this a joke? what the FECK is this crap? It just washed over me like so much glossily produced pointless limp noise. I felt exactly the same about Hold Your Fire, and it wasn't until years later that I started to appreciate those two records....
QuoteWhile not in the same league as Signals or Moving Pictures I feel that Power Windows is a big improvement on Grace Under Pressure
Quote... and much, much better than anything since Hold Your Fire.
QuoteFor me, PoW was the beginning of the "RUSH slide" away from aggressive, powerful guitar oriented progessive hard rock that had become their trademark. I mainly blame it on their shift to writing the songs on keyboards and sacrificing the guitar in the songs in favour of keyboards. but too much guitar was buried under layers of keyboard atmospherics. Side 2 was a real disappointment. This trend sadly continued on HYF.Yeah, if you don't include half of Presto, most of CP, half of TFE and most of VT. I'm not going to go into the whole disection of these albums again. The bottom line is that where RUSH is concerned, I want to hear a powerful guitar sound with keyboards adding a nice complimentary embellishment, not the other way around.
QuoteIt's sophisticated, modern and thoroughly exciting.
QuoteRush recordings don't get much more atmospheric than this
QuoteIt's easy to see why it goes over the heads of some - this is not heavy rock, it's something much more sophisticated and imaginative..
QuoteModern? ??? We were just listening to PoW in the car on Saturday and my wife (who's also a RUSH fan) commented "Boy does that ever sound like 80's music!!".
QuoteOn the whole, Pow is a good album.... but it is certainly NOT superior to GUP. It's where RUSH started to lose some "balls", something they only started to recover from on Counterparts (more on that soon).
