Not very often I actively agree with anybody, but this is a FACT.

FWIW PoW would make a reasonable four track EP

I really didn't like Power Windows when it first came out, but it was HYF that turned me off Rush for a long time. I recall clearly buying HYF, putting on my turntable and getting half way through Force Ten and stopping it; that vinyl copy never to be played again (I still have it btw). More recently though, I can find good tracks on both those albums, still not my faves by any means.

Power Windows  is a bonafide great 80's Rock album imho; everything else that Rush subsequently released after PW should only be judged on its merits as a Rush album (if you catch my drift)

If the final Rush tracks ever penned had been; 'The Pass' and 'Bravado' and these had replaced 'Tai Shan' and 'High Water' (on 'Hold Your Fire') I don't think many fans would have missed what came after, Clockwork Angels aside, though I really don't see what all the fuss is about there myself.
No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

these are apparently the demo versions of power windows
That was very interesting listening to. Fascinating to hear those songs without the input from Peter Collins
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Nearly finished songs, It really shows what a wonderful band rush are

Anger is a gift.


Got to agree with the commentator that says Alex's guitar sounds waaaay too thin here. Interesting nevertheless.

On A show of hands Alex's guitar sound is much bigger.

I love the chainsaw sounding guitar on The Big Money.

Always thought that was their second best concert opener, after The R30 Overture of course.

Indeed. Sounds even more 80s than the finished article, but I'm liking it.


Has PW ever had a remix/reproduction job?
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.
