Product Description

Amazon.ca

With Moving Pictures, Rush's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reached new heights. It's that rarest of creatures, a highly listenable progressive-rock album; even the all-instrumental "YYZ" is of interest to listeners besides musicians. The highlight of the album is "Limelight"; like many progressive-rock bands, Rush writes songs about the experience of being on-stage. The result is impressive, with almost orchestral arrangements that never overwhelm the actual music. "Tom Sawyer," another classic, is on this album, as well as the science-fiction-meets-road-movie "Red Barchetta," the epic "The Camera Eye," the cautionary "Witch Hunt," and "Vital Signs," which takes advantage of the budding digital sound technology available at the time the album was recorded. This is probably Rush's best album; it's definitely their most accessible. --Genevieve Williams

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 Great album just got better! April 5 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's just like your it the studio with Rush! the clarity of the sound is amazing! I Love this album on BD audio I just wish the record companies would embrace the BD audio format and put everything out in this format! BD audio blows away the audio cd, mp3, flac files, every format that came before it. It's a shame that the record companies won't embrace this incredible format because some like myself still like to buy music!

5.0 out of 5 stars moving pictures May 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album from start to finish. Although I find myself listening to "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight" less since they are placed ad infinitum on my local classic rock station. But the good thing is I can get more into the less popular tracks. All the songs on this album have been performed live. The Camera Eye is the only one not to be released live. Hopefully now with RUSH IN RIO and Rush breaking their tradition of a live album after every four studion album they'll be releasing some performances from the vaults. Anyway, before I read someone else's review I was not aware that Camera Eye was over ten minutes long, it didn't feel that long.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Confident their ways are best' March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
This rightfully deserves its reputation as a top Rush album, if not the best effort in a sizeable catalogue.
Moving Pictures falls square in between the hard, progressive rock of their 70s concept albums and their later alternative sound with its embrace of synthesizers. There are synths, but they're worked in to accent the music here. With Signals, the 1982 followup, Rush would take on a more layered, synth-heavy sound where Alex Lifeson's guitar would serve more as color work, or even disappear into the mix later in the decade.
This album is concise, and the vinyl was programmed perfectly. With only seven tracks, there is no weakness here, and the first side features one famed piece after another. Side one opens with perhaps the band's most famous single, Tom Sawyer. The synth sound accents the hard riffs in this cynical ode to rebellion and individualism. Red Barchetta is a total fan favorite and live staple about a young man's weekly tradition of racing his uncle's old hot rod. YYZ is a funky instrumental that is also a live staple and instantly recognizable with its ride cymbal opening. Then Limelight brings it home with its deep, fat riffs in a song about the concept of fame (hence the title.)
The old second side is more cerebral, I think. Camera Eye is an 10+ minute epic, the last of its kind for the band. The music is phenomenol--this doesn't feel as long as it really is. Part of that is due to the structure of the song--it's split into two considerations of 'the city'. First it's New York, then London, talking about the hustle and bustle and the lives people have in these crowded spaces. The track is contemplative rock, highlighted by warm synths and excellent riffing. Then comes Witch Hunt, a superb track.
