I have been a RUSH Fan for as long as I have been buying music. I still remember going into the local Record store and plunking down some hard earned cash at the tender age of 14 and buying my first two record albums, RUSH – A Farewell to Kings and R.E.O. Speedwagon – T.W.O.
As a middle-aged adult music buyer, I have acquired every single RUSH offering in Remastered digital format (I’m something of an Audiophile).
I had never been interested in their “Best of” compilations before. I didn’t need that, I had all the albums. But, after reading an early review by someone who had actually listened to this selection and not just jumped in on the record company bashing critisms about putting something out “just to make a buck”, I decided to purchase it. And let me tell you: IT SOUNDS GREAT! All the songs presented here are superior to the 1997 and 2002 remaster series. And its a nice selection of songs. Some of my favorites.
Buy it. Or purchase it for someone as an introduction to RUSH’s music. I even got it on sale for about $12, what a deal! Two discs packed with RUSH music.
