You'll have to excuse me. Right now, I am a bit overwhelmed. There is so much to do. I came here to do a brief review of Rush's Moving Pictures. I just realized, that is absolutely impossible.

This album was the first album that I bought from Rush. It is really, truly a brilliant album. I've listened to it many times since I got it three years ago. It grows on you a lot. There are so many elements to it that make it such a classic. I know you all know what kind of classic is this, but let's say something about this album.

A truly brilliant album. Standout track for me is Witch Hunt-so different to the others yet really powerful.

Their debut is my all time progressive rock masterpiece !
I didn't like the rest of their albums, sounds too sissy.
Btw why rock albums are here ? Rock Storm ?

Because early Rush is close to Heavy Metal.

It actually has more to do with their influence and significance. That, and we also feature a lot of prog rock bands here due to its similarities with prog metal, so the "metal" part does have some merit.

Yeah, I think lots of Rush songs are progressive hard rock (not Metal) but some are more like progressive Metal.
And yes, Rush influenced countless Metal musicians.

I was thinking awhile ago while skating about how much I actually love Rush and this album. I can remember being like 5 or 6 listening to Tom Sawyer over and over again. Damn, what a great album.

My mom bought me this album in 1982, 10 years old, was instantly hooked - true story.

Fun fact: Tom Sawyer was the first song that inspired me to play air guitar. it was Juke Box Hero by Foreigner that helped me perfect my technique though.

I remember hearing "Tom Sawyer" from an episode of Futurama (love that show). This album is awesome.

I always thought that the album name was referring to film, but on the album art there's people literally moving pictures.

I guess the double meaning is the clue here.
