Rush – Clockwork Angels

Twenty albums in, you have to ask: what's left for Rush to prove? A band that have already been through and gotten over their 'questionable' period, characterised by excessive synthesizers and the sudden mastery of levitation, in record time and returned to that driving proggy rock that defined classics like 2112 and Moving Pictures. Since the hiatus and return of legendary drummer Neil Peart after a huge personal tragedy, the band has cautiously returned to recording music, in the form of 2002's Vapor Trails and Snakes And Arrows five years later. Both albums were distinctly Rush and both contained some great tracks, but they weren't quite the return to form that fans had been waiting for.
