She's all over the video. It's horrid, but, she's there.

Not too many Rush fans around here. Not even sure if you're a Rush fan, actually.

The Pass live is fantastic.

My 2nd concert, actually, support for Hold Your Fire, as it turns out.

I heard Aimee the other day at the grocery store singing a Christmas duet or something. Don't know what song or who the other singer was.

She put out a Xmas album last year.

I think it was Mr. Brau who last year uploaded Aimee Mann's live cover of "The Scientist." Such a good version too.

Thanks Brau!

Most of the people I know that love Rush are more old school about it, digging the really early stuff a lot more than post-Signals.....but, yes, Prime Mover is good shit...love the opening...I like High Water a lot, too....I don't know, Hold Your Fire is an underrated album in my humble opinion.

Hold Your Fire is probably their best album of their post-Signals 80's period.

And they are most definitely part of the progressive rock genre, although they veered away from it as the 80's went on. But good stuff throughout their entire career.

I liked their last 2 albums, actually. Especially Vapor Trails. Even the albums I did not like on the whole had their moments (Roll the Bones, Presto, Counterparts, Test for Echo) all have at least 2-3 songs I genuinely like.
