Moving Pictures (Reviewed by Taz):

This is one of the first RUSH albums I owned and I find myself going back to this recording. I remember putting the needle on the vinyl and out starts "Tom Sawyer". With the awsome signature playing of Neil Peart and incorporation of keyboards with a progressive beat makes RUSH a "Musicians" band. I was floored. Next to follow, Red Barchetta, YYZ (an awsome jam song where Neil Peart for the next few years would put his drum solo in for lives shows), Limelight, The Camera Eye, Witch Hunt and Vital Signs.
Listening to these songs makes you wish RUSH would write songs like these again. One can only hope.

Track Listing:
1. Tom Sawyer Dubois/L/L/P 4:33
2. Red Barchetta Lee/L/P 6:09
3. Yyz Lee/Peart 4:24
4. Limelight Lee/L/P 4:19
5. The Camera Eye Lee/L/P 10:58
6. Witch Hunt Lee/L/P 4:44
7. Vital Signs Lee/L/P 4:46

Response to this review by Mad Dog): This is the album that got me hooked on the band. Rush got everything right on this one.

Response to this review by Zel): They are one of the best bands to come out of Canada. This band not only rocks but manages to be socially conscious without leaning to much on the Bruce Cockburn just plain weird side. I did enjoy this album very much but admittedly Tom Sawyer got way over played here. My favorite Rush Album of all times is Grace Under Pressure.

Response to this review by caligula): I like Rush, I had Hemispheres and Moving Pictures, but they were never in my top favorite bands. because they are from Canada , they along with April Wine , Trooper,Max Webster (Kim Mitchell's original band) and Triumph would come here every year so I saw them in concert alot. I do think that anyone who really listens to the albums would have to say Neil Peart is the best drummer of all time....honourable mention to Taz Drummer.
