Album Review: Rush, 'Clockwork Angels' By

Well folks, the highly anticipated new studio album from "Rush" was officially released on June 12, 2012 and I personally believe it is an outstanding piece of work both lyrically and musically. The album is a complete "Concept" piece from open to close with each song building from the last. There is of course a huge concert tour in motion for this new compilation with extensive North American and European venues currently scheduled. Visit for the full concert line up .

The following is an album review by Billboard Magazine .com that credits' the boys for the enjoyable journey the album takes the listener through. Great job Geddy, Alex and of course Neil who pens these memorable lyrics!!!  Mac

Clockwork Angels
Producers: Rush, Nick Raskulinecz
Anthem/Roadrunner Records
Release Date: June 12

It's not exactly a news flash when at the beginning of Rush's latest album, "Clockwork Angels," frontman Geddy Lee proclaims, "I can't stop thinking big." The Canadian trio has always stretched large ideas across an expansive soundscape, blending hard rock, prog and metal. And the five years since the band's last album, "Snakes & Arrows," have given Rush plenty of time to create a lot of new music. "Clockwork Angels" weighs in at a formidable 66 minutes, time enough for a kitchen-sink's worth of ideas and a weighty conceptual focus by drummer/lyricist Neil Peart about one man's journey to realize his dreams. (Look for the novel soon.) The album's seven-minute opuses range from tight ("Headlong Flight") to the messy title track, while fans of Rush's classic, riff-driven approach and ensemble virtuosity will find aural nirvana in "The Anarchist,"and "Seven Cities of Gold".

Track from the new album entitled "The Garden"  Enjoy folks!!!!!    Mac

"The Wreckers" and "Wish Them Well."
