  • Huge synths and prodigious bass have both of these sides rockin' like you will not believe
  • •Individual notes aren't smeared, they have body and attack, and there's no shortage of energy to the complex playing
  • 4 stars on Allmusic: "Rush didn't forget how to rock out -- "The Analog Kid" and "Digital Man" were some of their most up-tempo compositions in years."

David Lindley
El Rayo-X

  (Item #: lindlelray_1611) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Two great sides: Double Plus (A++) for the second, close behind for the first

  • Engineered in 1981 by Greg Ladanyi, the very next year he would take home the Best Engineering Grammy for Toto IV (one helluva good sounding album and a former member of our Top 100).
  • 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic: "One of the greatest rock music albums of its time. Fabulous."

  • We've called this album a Demo Disc for Bass and any Hot Stamper copy will show you why
