    I'm sorry to all Canandians and fans of this power trio...but i can't stand them.
    Geddy Lee sounds like he was kicked in the balls everytime he blurts out a note
    Everytime i hear even one of the chords of Limelight, or Tom Sawyer or Working Man i just get the shakes because i hate it sooooo much
    crap crap crap crap crap
    ButtRock
    Rush's noise pollution continually pollutes the air waves of Cleveland radio stations...im sorry but today i heard Rush 4 times on the Radio... 4 TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and im not in my car much at all
    4 TIMES
    argh i hate them

    Thank You

    Well, you have your own opinion. Rush is one of my favorite bands. Neal Peart might be the best drummer ever and Alex Lifeson is a very underrated guitarist (I love the riff and solo in "Limelight"). As for Geddy Lee's voice, it doesn't bother me at all.

    I think they're supposed to put out a new album this fall. Can't wait. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Icecream-man, surely your radio has an "off" switch. Don't torture yourself man, use it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I've only got a couple of Rush albums, but I admire their talent and find them to be a unique sounding band. No question, Geddy Lee's voice is an aquired taste though.

    Rush sounds like birdshit. I've broken three fingers lunging at my ghetto blaster off switch when Rush started pollutin' the airwaves. I can tolerate their first album,tho. And the one with the fireman dog on the cover. Got high on sterno when I was a pup and listened to the firedog album. Ah,the good ole days...

    I like Rush [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    They have some great songs like Roll The Bones and Stick It Out etc.

    I know guys that played in a band with Neil Peart before he joined Rush. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    They aren't one of my favorite bands though, Geddy's voice gets to me also after a while, but he is a great bass player.


    IMO The best Canadian band is Kim Mitchell, and only Canadians know about him! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I used to hate Rush with a passion, but I've come to appreciate the musical aspect of their output. I do however have to list myself among the ones that consider Geddy Lee's voice to be annoying.

    If you can't stand Geddy Lee's voice listen to "Where's My Thing?" from Roll The Bones and "Leave That Thing Alone" from Counterparts, and "YYZ" from Moving Pictures, they're great instrumentals. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    They are certainly a talented group musically speaking---no question. But I don't like Geddy's voice. It makes my skin crawl.

    Also I find that Rush's lyrics can be bit too pretenious at times....If you want to send a message, use Western Union. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
