My most played album # 56. Rush - A Farewell To Kings. The fifth studio album was released in September 1977. An amazing 8 piece band from Wollongong, Australia! They were going to be a 9 piece but the cowbell player could not kick his addiction to green M&M's so he was finally dropped from the band, so no cowbell on this one. They got a hit off this one, Closer to the heart a second single was released "Cinderella Man". You have to check out Cygnus X-1 and Xanadu. Some guy tried to tell me a 3 piece from Canada. Yea right. First of all, 3 people could not make all those noises and people in Canada have frozen hands so they can't play guitar, I call fake news! Anyway a killer album! #11 in Canada, no gold? Amazing!

역시나 흠잡을게 없다.

Xanadu 는 이쪽 계열 최고의 곡이다. 어디 내로라하는 밴드 다 데려와도 죄다 때려눕힐 수 있는 희대의 명곡.

Just the fact that Rush were making such awesome music in 1977 is mind-boggling.

Xanadu같은 곡은 역대급 마스터피스다.

2112 Moving Pictures 만 듣지 말고 다른 앨범도 들어보자. 모두 수작이다.
