Remastered on heavyweight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process, all from original analogue masters. Rush's eighth studio album, Moving Pictures, was originally released in February, 1981. Moving Pictures was also the band's biggest-selling album in the U.S., rising to #3 on the Billboard charts (and #1 in Canada) and one of the first discs to receive the RIAA's first-ever multi-platinum designation, scoring 4 million sales to date in the U.S. on the strength of classics like 'Limelight,' 'Tom Sawyer' and 'Vital Signs.'

No-one can doubt the musicianship of Rush and it is never more evident than in `Moving Pictures'. Neil Peart's drumming is, as always, tight and complex, Alex Lifeson's virtuoso electric guitar positively soars, and Geddy Lee proves why he has long been regarded as one of the most proficient bassists in rock music, and all this while making fairly extensive use of progressive electronic technology adding an extra dimension to the music.
The album is one of the most `complete' I have ever heard. The first four tracks; `Tom Sawyer', `Red Barchetta', the instrumental `XYZ' and `Limelight' are all Rush classics, each one an anthem, though all the tracks are good ones; Rush have a skill of creating a rich musical sound that feels almost orchestral. There are only 7 tracks on the album in total, but it doesn't matter, because the album feels perfectly weighted, the songs perfectly ordered, and the length seems spot-on. It is difficult to describe, but this is an album that demands to be listened from beginning to end, and leaves the listener totally satisfied.
Rush's magnum opus and one of the very best rock albums of all time, no question.
so with that in mind Tom Sawyer it self is near as damn it masterpiece, Camera eye is a longer semi epic song which I really like.
YYZ is an amzing instrumental and I believe it won an award which I would have voted for it to win too so thats awesome.
Red barchetta is a really good song that starts of kind of rocky then settle in to a nice little vocal melody and then blasts in to the rest of the song with a really cool riff
Limelight is a really clever song with some very clever instrumental work that makes it a slight challenge to listen to and more interesting , Again Rush kept it tastful in length overall and this album is no much over the 40 minute mark
interestingly I don't remember witch hunt and vital signs for some reason but then I normally don't get round to the last two songs cos I get hooked on the others ( possible flaw perhaps?)
anyway its an excellent album and it also show the first album with any MAJOR MAJOR use of keyboards that were creeping in since 2112 it is perhaps the beginning of the eclectic experimental synth era
