Pictures (Reviewed by Taz):
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.
1. Tom Sawyer Dubois/L/L/P 4:33

is the album that got me hooked on the band. Rush got everything right
on this one.
to this review by Zel):
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.
to this review by caligula):
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.
