I'm not as crazy about Rush as I once was. There's no denying that Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neal Peart are amazing musicians and I was reminded of that once again revisiting Chronicles. The problem is, they've always dated themselves horribly. In the 70's they basically sung about mystic people and places which was so typical of rock bands of the day. In the 80's, Rush's songs were so political and preachy that it was almost unbearable to listen to two or three in a row without shutting off my iPod. There were moments listening to this that reminded me of why I was once such a big fan but for the most part, Rush falls into the archive of bands that are significant to my musical tastes but are better for looking at and talking about than listening to.
