    Wal Mart is selling a Rush 5 CD set for 20 bucks, the albums are 'A Farewell to Kings'
    - '2112'
    - 'Signals'
    - 'Fly By Night'
    - 'Moving Pictures'.
    I have a greatest hits from Rush, but am thinking about picking up this set. Are all the songs on these albums good, or hit and miss:headscratch::music:

    I'm not a RUSH 'expert', but I do love their music and have all their albums, so take this for the little that it's worth.

    MOVING PICTURES and 2112 are considered two of the 'must-have' RUSH albums. Both are great albums, with many of RUSH's better known songs on them (i.e. Tom Sawyer, Limelight, and Red Barchetta on MOVING PICTURES), although the first half of 2112 is a concept album, so be aware...

    SIGNALS is full of good lesser-known songs like "The Analog Kid" and "The Weapon", as well as the better-known "Subdivisions".

    A FAREWELL TO KINGS is a good album with some odder songs (like "Cygnas X-1) as well as the classic "Closer to the Heart"

    FLY BY NIGHT is RUSH's second studio album, and the music is a bit rougher sounding as a result. It still has some great songs on it, though, like "Anthem", "Fly by Night", and "Rivendell" (which is RUSH's version of a song about Tolkein's Middle Earth).

    Hope this helps, Okie!!!

    Maybe I'm a tad young for Rush(42) but I can't see anyone wanting to buy their music:upeyes:

    Now GNR, They Rock!:supergrin:
