5.0 out of 5 stars Rush's arguable finest hour July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Canadian power trio Rush's ninth(and eighth studio overall) album entitled Moving Pictures was released in February of 1981 to fans whom were heavily anticipating a strong follow-up to the previous year's Permanent Waves, which was Rush's first Top 5 album here in the US thanks to songs like Freewill and The Spirit of Radio. When fans first went to the stores to buy MP, the artwork must have caught some eyes. The title of the disc Moving Pictures had monumental multiple meanings. First, there is workers actually "moving pictures". Then, there are people crying because the pictures are so moving. Finally, there was a film crew making a moving picture of the whole scene on the back cover. Plus, actual moving pictures of the band at their respective instruments(on the original CD, drummer Neil Peart's photo was missing, luckily on this remaster, his photo was restored). Also, Bob Ludwig(whom originally mastered the album), did a superb job on the remastering of this remastered version. All of the songs on Moving Pictures were written by all three Rush members except*(with Pye Dubois) and +(by Geddy Lee/Peart). The album starts at full throttle with Tom Sawyer*, which was talking about modern-day heroes and using one of Mark Twain's character as a metaphor and featured rapid playing by Peart, guitarist Alex Lifeson and bassist/vocalist/keyboardist Lee, whom was singing more and more in a lower octave on this album than previous albums. The song Red Barchetta follows, and is about a person who goes to his uncle's farm and discovers a car. The music picks you up then accelerates as the song goes on and then ends as it began by dropping you off at the next location. Next is YYZ+, an instrumental named after the luggage tag code at Toronto airport. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Pictures(4.5) July 4 2004
By Mark F
Format:Audio CD
This album is seen as one of, if not RUsh's best album and also as the transition between their first few CDs (which were more hard/prog rockish) and their more experimental future albums. Much of the praise that this album gets is well deserved as many of Rush's classics come from this album.
Since this is a Rush album, the excellent musicianship is obviously present. Neil Peart's drumming is amazing on this album as he creates complex rhythms and navigates the band's irregular time signatures with ease. Peart's lyrics are also interesting and thought provoking in some cases. Alex Lifeson's guitar playing is also top notch. He lays down some great solos and some classic riffs like the one in "Limelight". The final member of the group, Geddy Lee is also amazing on bass. He creates many great basslines (as usual) like the one in the instrumental "YYZ". He lays out some nice synthesizer parts too. His high pitched acquired taste vocals could take away from the album for some but I think they fit the music fine. They are more tolerable than those on some previoius albums which were even more high pitched.
1. Tom Sawyer: This is the most popular song off this album. It deals with independence and individuality. I really like the bass parts and the drums in this song. The song is quite catchy. Definitely one of my favorites off this album. Classic Rush. 10/10
2. Red Barchetta: This 6 minute song is also one of my favorites. The lyrics are about a future society/govt. that bans the use of cars. The character in the story is going joy riding in his Uncle's hidden car. The music is very good as are the lyrics. I like the vocal melodies as well. Great song 9.5/10
3. YYZ: This instrumental starts out with Peart tapping out morse code on his cymbal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good, maybe even great!!! Oct. 4 2014
Format:Audio CD
I get that this is generally considered to be Rush's best record. It is, without a doubt, their commercial high water mark, but it is far from being their best disc. I will preface this review by saying I am a fan of the guitar-based rock from ALL of the bands prior releases. The proverbial hand-writing was on the "studio" wall with release of Permanent Waves as the band started to venture into more commercial waters with Spirit of Radio (a salute to then pirate radio station CFNY 102.1 in Toronto) and Freewill. The rest of the album was pure progressive-rock gold in the vein of all it's predecessors. The tour for Permanent Waves was stellar. The band was still playing Cygnus X1 (epic) as well as By-Tor, the long version of 2112, Passage to Bangkok, Hemispheres, the Trees, La Villa, 4 of 6 tracks from the Waves record and many more early gems I won't mention. AND the opening band (in Buffalo) Max Webster, played a song yet to be released, Battlescar.
When Pictures came out in early 1981 I remember being slightly shocked and disappointed with the further degree of commercial adventure the band expanded into with Limelight and in particular, Tom Sawyer. The reggae feel of Vital Signs was a further sign of what was to come on future records. YYZ is by far the best track on the record but again, it pails in comparison to La Villa. The rest of the record is good, even great, but by way of comparison, it comes up slightly lacking.
The tour was further evidence of the rot (too harsh, I know) that had set in. No more Cygnus, Bastille Day, Anthem, Bangkok, ect. ect. A year and a half later they releases Signals and I knew the glory days were truly over. The keyboards were creeping up in the mix (at Geddy's behest), so much so that it cost Terry Brown his production seat.
