Rush (the band)’s Clockwork Angels is out now. After a few listens I’m amazed how the Canadian power trio balances amazing musical performances with tight compositions. And when some of the songs run over six minutes, that’s saying a lot.
For a taste, here’s “Headlong Flight,” a song that starts with a great bass line and drives further ahead.
Then watch an interview with bassist Geddy Lee about the story behind the concept album and what keeps him interested in playing after 38 years.
