Album 365: Day 129 - Rush - Grace Under Pressure

Grace Under Pressure

Favorite tracks: Distant Early Warning, Afterimage, The Enemy Within
Sleeper tracks: Red Sector A, Between the Wheels

This album was the start of the 80's era Rush.  That is the era that most music fans tend to ignore when it comes to their appreciation of the band.

I was late to the party on this record.  It didn't appeal to me when I first heard it.  I liked "Distant Early Warning" and absolutely hated "Red Sector A".  Throughout middle school and hight school, I would have voted this the worst Rush album.  Now, I think the record is pretty great.  Neil's lyric writing started to be more concise and thoughtful...less proggy.
