    Regular domestic copies are going for much cheaper.

    As I mentioned earlier, Clockwork Angels is the only Rush album I don't have, but I was thinking of buying the vinyl instead of the CD... thoughts? Is the vinyl any good? For some reason, I'm imagining the CD being far more bricked than the vinyl would be.

    Looks like you may be correct, see link below. Clockwork Angels is a great record, but the compression of the CD makes it hard for me to listen to. I wonder what the vinyl sounds like.

    The vinyl is slightly more dynamic, but IIRC, there were many reports of sibilance and non-fill being present. Several years ago, I bought a new copy that had both of these issues in addition to being off center. I returned it and ended up getting a used copy from a forum member. This copy also has sibilance, but I was fully aware of this before the purchase and I consider it to be the lesser of 3 evils. It's really a matter of luck... if you're still able to find a copy. The vinyl may be OOP too since it's not available on the band's site. It's also rather expensive on eBay ($90 is the cheapest!) and Discogs at the moment. Amazon has a few though: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AC4D59M/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AP3VA1GJZM3EQ&psc=1

    Do you remember the Rush concert played on MTV non-stop in 1982? I just remember Alex wearing a red suit.

    RUSH's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson have thanked everyone who has paid tribute to Neil Peart.

    Peart died on January 7 in Santa Monica, California after a three-year battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The iconic RUSH drummer was 67 years old. The band announced his passing on January 10, setting off shockwaves and an outpouring of grief from fans and musicians all over the world.

    On Friday (January 17), Lee and Lifeson took to social media to write: "Our most heartfelt thanks go out to family, friends, musicians, writers and fans from around the globe for the incredible outpouring of love and respect for Neil since his passing. These touching tributes help to lessen the pain of this terrible loss and remind us all to celebrate his remarkable life and our connections to it."

    RUSH's final show took place at the Forum in Los Angeles on August 1, 2015. Peart indicated at the time that he wanted to retire while he was still able to play well, along with a desire to spend more time at home with his young daughter.

    Listened to a few tracks each from Vapor Trails, Clockwork Angels, Test For Echo, Counterparts, Roll The Bones, Snakes & Arrows. The weak link with all these records are the vocal melodies which aren't very memorable. But the musical aspect is brilliant. I thought the remixed Vapor Trails sounded great. As does Clockwork Angels.

    I got done with the studio albums yesterday and will be moving on to the live releases now. Just played All the World's a Stage last night and will spin the Hammersmith show from the deluxe Farewell to Kings tonight.

    Thanks. it looks like the vinyl was re-issued in 2013 (for UK), and that's what's mostly available today, for around $25, give or take. Which is far cheaper than a new copy of the CD is going for.

    Agreed. And Presto has some pretty great vocal melodies (IMO), but the production/sound is so light/wimpy.

    I don't think I ever managed to get through Clockwork Angels because it hurt me to listen to. I would say to myself "I'm going back to Rivendell".

    Roll the Bones this evening

    Snakes and Arrows this morning - which I’ve not listened to in over a decade. Some great moments but, Bravest Face and Good News Worst are 2 of their weakest ever songs, I think...

    Clockwork Angels, their best album in years, up there with the very best of their catalogue, IMO.

    I’m not a hardcore Rush fan but, this seems to be favorite of the really devoted fans.
