Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 379/500!

Celebrating 40 years of Moving Pictures with the 5LP Deluxe Edition! All vinyl has been cut via half-speed Direct-To-Metal Mastering for the first time ever and pressed on 180-gram audiophile vinyl. LP 1 features the original album, while LPs 2-5 feature the complete, unreleased Toronto concert from March 25, 1981. Extras include a booklet with new Hugh Syme illustrations & liner notes by Kim Thayil, Les Claypool, Taylor Hawkins, Bill Kelliher and Neil Sanderson.

On Seventies albums like 2112 and Hemispheres, Rush mastered the high-prog epic. Moving Pictures was the record where they proved they could say as much in four minutes as they previously had in 20. Songs like 'Tom Sawyer,' 'Limelight,' and the Police-like 'Vital Signs' showcased the trio's superhuman chops in a radio-ready framework, while more adventurous tracks like the Morse code-inspired instrumental 'YYZ' and the synth-heavy suite 'The Camera Eye' found them tastefully streamlining their wildest ideas. Said Geddy Lee, 'We learned it's not so easy to write something simple.'
-Rolling Stone, The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
Thanks to its tautness, conceptual integrity, and the fortuitous manner in which their career ambitions and radio programmer taste intersected, Moving Pictures functioned as much a harbinger of a new artistic era as David Bowie's Young Americans...Best, Rush was constitutionally incapable of cynicism. 'Alienation is the craze,' sang the Cars two years earlier, sounding neither crazy nor alienated but arch; 'Put aside the alienation,' Neil Peart countered on 'Limelight.' Optimism without sentimentality? In this biz? For a couple of hours, this Moving Pictures package envisages a world of love and light.
-Alfred Soto, Pitchfork
