Not only is Moving Pictures Rush's best album, it is
undeniably one of the greatest hard rock albums of all
time. The new wave meets hard rock approach of Permanent
Waves is honed to perfection. All seven of the tracks
are classics (four are still featured regularly in
concert and on classic rock radio). While other hard
rock bands at the time experimented unsuccessfully with
other musical styles, Rush was one of the few to
successfully cross over. The first part is perfect.
Their most renowned song, "Tom Sawyer," kicks things
off, and is soon followed by the racing "Red Barchetta,"
the instrumental "YYZ," and a song that examines the
pros and cons of stardom, "Limelight".
