Progressive Rock

Throughout their career, Rush have always been a band that you could count on to push the boundaries of what rock was capable of, and their discography contains a laundry list of ambitious albums that helped to bring prog to a wider audience. Having said that, Presto is not one of those albums. On this return to a more guitar-oriented sound after the synth period that dominated the '80s, the bandmembers emerge from the electronic fog and try to reorient themselves to once again working with their more traditional setup. While none of the songs here are out-and-out terrible, listening to the album definitely gives you the sense that things just aren't quite clicking, as if the band is just a little bit rusty after stepping away from this kind of songwriting for nearly a decade. This makes Presto a perfectly workmanlike album from a band that made a name for itself with its creativity, containing all the ingredients of a Rush album minus the sense of ambition and fun that ran through the veins of the group's earlier work. And though this isn't an album you necessarily need to run from, a brisk walk to their work from the '70s is advisable.

This one is a logical progression from Moving Pictures. Although Geddy himself has dismissed this album, I find it one of their best. the fifth contender for best Rush album ever. Every track is superb. Comparatively weak is Hand Over Fist, but only comparatively! The album opens with Show Don't Tell, with amazing guitar work by Alex. Chain Lightning and The Pass continue this, and War Paint is a modern Rush classic. Great stuff! Presto is brilliant. SuperConductor has a tremendous riff, and Available Light is essential. A great album and one of Rush's finest. Listen to it and you will agree!
