What?! Now Hemispheres is damn good but Grace Under Pressure, man. Rush combined their prog rock sound with dark sounding synth based electric sound and by Jove if that wasn't a damn fine album!

Ha, I'll take the hate on this one; my fault for sharing an opinion on the internet.

Personally I didn't like the synth-based albums. I loved the crisp tone of the guitar, the beautifully complex lyrics, the amazing prog rock pieces, and the raw power in Geddy's voice that was in every album up until Signals. That's just the type of music I like to listen to.

Rush started a transformation of sound on Permanent Waves that completed on Signals to a more synth pop tone. They were still good on Signals, but by the time they started getting back to a heavier rock sound Geddy had lost the range I loved I won't get into how much I wish he would stop trying to hit those notes he used to be able to hit with that god awful falsetto thing he does. Then by the time I started liking Geddy's voice again, Alex traded in a crisp and punctual rhythm guitar style for a more distorted continuous sound; he stopped using pauses in his riffs to emphasize his chords, and I just don't like that as much. The final nail in the coffin for me is the new lyric writing. While the higher voice may have allowed for a few more cliches, I think the quality of lyrics has also declined. The songs seem to be less story-oriented, and the lyrics seem a bit more repetitive than they were.

But now let me qualify all those things.
1. Rush is still my favorite band
2. They are all still at the absolute top in technical proficiency with their instruments.
3. For getting up to their 70's, they are fucking incredible.

tl;dr

What I meant to say a bit less bluntly in my other comment is I just prefer their early work.

The "kill" at the end insinuates that the audience is located at the same side as the camera. I just hope that's the case.

Kelgore the Ogre is a pretty fuckin solid name. There's syllabic symmetry, rhyming, and it has the word "gore" in it.
