Classic Rush...
By: FerrisBueller
Date: 14 Aug 2010
Rush's "Permanent Waves" marks the band's transition from science fiction-inspired, progressive rock concept albums to albums with shorter, more radio-friendly format tracks. The Spirit of Radio showcases the influence of ska and other New Wave groups (such as the Police) on the band, while synthesizers also began playing a more extensive role, with less of the unusual percussion instruments (cowbell, glockenspiel, etc.) that were used on earlier releases. Freewill, the other major hit from the album demonstrates an interesting philosophical journey, which ultimately leaves things up to the listener (compare the lyrics for this song with what is actually sung). All in all, a fine album which set the stage for the band's greatest commercial success, "Moving Pictures."
