Clockwork Angels by Rush
Released: May 2012
Label: Roadrunner Records
The Rush of 2012 isn't as epic as the Rush that gave us 2112 and Moving Pictures, but that's a minor issue at most. Clockwork Angels is proof they've aged better than nearly every other band from the classic rock era still active. A concept album, it's rooted in alchemy and steampunk. In all honesty, though, these themes are difficult to follow and take a back seat to grooving on all the quality jams. The best is "Headlong Flight," a boogie rager with a killer middle section. Another keeper is "Carnies," a fiery rumination on transcendence and escape via Gypsy life... so very Rush, isn't it?
