A really underestimated album from Rush. They have really great music and lyrics. The 80's was their best decade. Was disappointed on how long it took for Amazon to send it and when it arrived, the outer case of the cd was cracked, I would give Amazon one star for poor shipping and handling.

I'm a Rush fan, so I simply love it. I refreshed my old vinyl collection in new CDs. Perfect sound quality.

80's Rush ususally is met with a real big groan. HYF is not the best Rush album by a mile but it is worth the listen just for Force Ten and Time Stand Still. These two tracks are such well written songs, synth's or no synth's. They just have a great sonic vibe and soar from start to finish. Prime Mover is another track that is pretty cool and actually has some nice guitar floating around in there. (Yes there are some guitars found on this album!!!) With most mid 80's Rush, with the bit of good comes the absolute awful and by that i am refering to the song Second Nature. Where do i start? This is why most fans press skip on HYF. This song is just terrible. A ballady, soft rock disaster and belongs nowhere near a Rush album. Most other tracks fall somewhere inbetween, making this an album to come back to once in a while when other classics have been exhausted.

Canadian power trio Rush released its 14th album Hold Your Fire in September of 1987. The album was the end of their third phase and their last studio for Mercury before the band left amicably for Atlantic. This album was the start of Rush slowly doing away with the synthesizers that dominated the last four studio efforts. Also, this was the last album the band would co-produce with Peter Collins until 1993's Counterparts. I did not hear this album until Christmas of 1990 when my father bought me this on cassette. I got the remastered CD in 1997 and it is stunning. The album kicks off with the rocking Force Ten which was a huge hit on rock radio. The mammoth hit Time Stand Still follows and features 'Til Tuesday bass player/vocalist Aimee Mann singing backing vocals as she does on Tai Shan. Bass player/vocalist/keyboardist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart just kick ass on this album. Other standouts include Lock and Key, Mission, Open Secrets and the closing High Water. Despite a #12 placing and Gold sales, this album was considered overlooked at a time of bad hair metal like Bon Jovi and Cinderella. Hold Your Fire is highly recommended!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Matthew West on Feb. 25 2009
Format: Audio CD
To begin, I have to say that I never got to like the sound of the Signature guitars that Alex uses on this album. I also dislike the sound of Geddy's Wal bass. This album sounds heavily produced. It is note and sound perfect throughout, giving it a bit of a sterile feel in places because there is often no sense of the performer. Having said that, the album does sound really good, particularly on higher end stereo and surround systems.

The album opener, "Force Ten", really grabs you. You know you are in for something different when you hear that choir and then the big clap followed by the guitar chord, then BOOM-CHA-BOOM-BOOM-CHA-BOOM-CHA-BOOM-BOOM! Then the drums come rocking in, Aimee Mann laughs, and we are on our way. The production overall is a bit bright, but it does rock hard. Each section has lots of textures and layers. Unfortunately, the guitar becomes lost at times. I think that some of the synth stuff would have been better if it had been handled by the guitar. Still, after 'Power Windows', this sound is refreshing and full of potential.

"Time Stand Still" is pure pop rock, at least on the surface. It has a really nice sound that marries melody and rhythm so well. This is one of the most widely appealing songs that Rush has ever written. I think that if it had had a much better music video it would have pushed them over the top and given them a world wide hit. I truly thing that their decision to release that video sabotaged this song's chances.

One of the biggest sleepers on this album is "Open Secrets". Even most Rush fans forget about this song. In many ways it is a return to 'Power Windows'--but with a more edgy sound. It has interesting contrasting bright and dark sections. I love the shifting moods.

I must admit, the first time I listened to this album, I truly hated it. I thought that if Rush was bound to have one crappy album through their years of success, this is it. I was dead wrong.
After listening to it more and more, you realize how much the album grows on you and how great it really is, desite what other 'fans' have to say. This record is a beautiful end to the synch era started with Signals and is one of Rush's most solid albums.
Force Ten (10/10) - Some love it, some hate it. I loved it.
Time Stands Still (10/10) - I love the beat of this song, and the female voice really adds bounds to it. No wonder it's a classic.
Open Secrets (10/10) - THIS ONE'S MY FAVORITE. You may find this strange, but it's cleanness and the creative changes in tone, mainly the pre-chorus (Where things are much quieter), makes this one on top of my list.
Second Nature (10/10) - I know, 4 perfects. They deserve it, especially this slower and more emotional tune.
Prime Mover (8/10) - This one's very good, but I never really liked Geddy's bass riff through the chorus, its distracting...Never the less...
Lock and Key (9/10) - Another good song. Your basic rock song.
Mission (10/10) - This one reminds me of 'The Weapon' for some reason. Great song. Another time-tested classic.
Turn the Page (7/10) - This is a fav of many fans, but I just don't see whats so good. Very basic and nothing special, but good.
Tai Shan (9/10) - This one really grows on ya. I hated it the most of the album when I heard it, mostly because of the opening, but it really dows become a great song after some listens.
High Water (10/10) - I love the chorus. Great Ender.
Why are you still reading this? Go have a listen for yourself. Didn't like it the first time? Play it again...and again...and again...
