Cleveland@the Q,
YYZ had the hair standing up on the back of my neck,
Me&my brothers,
Is a time&show I'll never forget when all 4 of us where still livin,


The whole album never grows old for me,
Came out the yr before my graduation,
I remember listening to WMMS 101 commercials promoting the album,
Was a staple in my album rotation back then on the old Silver Marshall,

Got the CD in my truck,

While IMO, it pales somewhat to others that came before, it is (for me) the last of their greats!

As a lifelong fan of RUSH, I'm 60 years old now, I agree with "Slick Willie"...Moving Pictures has Red Barchetta, YYZ and Tom Sawyer for sure great songs, but I believe Permanent Waves and many of the earlier albums are better. I took this shot from the front row at Madison Square Garden, NYC Monday May 18, 1981 on the Moving Pictures Tour, sweet memories indeed....

For me Moving Pictures was a step up from Permanent Waves but yes their last thoroughly great album. They made a conscience choice to embrace new wave type pop and they lost me. Signals was a great album for the genre just not a good Rush album and they got worse from there.
