Hemispheres songs Product Information
Rush began life as a power trio in the Led Zeppelin/heavy rock mode. Over the years the band refined their musical vision as they gained both instrumental and conceptual facility.1978's HEMISPHERES marks their transition from heavy riff-mongers to full blown art-rockers. Lee, Lifeson and Peart employ a number of tricks from the prog-rock bag here; (very) extended songs, multi-part suites, long instrumental passages, rapidly shifting tempos and time signatures, complicated unison riffs and synthesizer orchestrations. ...See Full Description

||Handing out 5 stars doesn't come easily, but...|
A favorite example of music as "Art". They say everything is simple 'til you have a choice. This album's release, awaited eagerly by fans, was delayed by a time span surpassed only by Boston as Geddy, Neil & Alex dealt with new horizons generated by the success of "Closer to the Heart" and the associated fortune and interest.

||The definitive Rush classic!|
The whole concept behind the band was to create a sound that was truly unique and identifiable, and that's no different in 2002 (can't wait for the new CD!) and in 1978.

||"One of my favorite RUSH discs"|
What really makes this album great is the title track "HEMISPHERES". It is a close 2nd to the concept song "2112" from the album of the same name." HEMISPHERE" is a very intelligently written song.
By Mark ("Wichita,KS,USA")
this is one of my favorite rush albums I like the structure of the songs, Neil's drumming (amazing)and lyrics, the guitar chords used by Alex are very original and give a very special athmosphere to their music, and ofcourse, geddy's basslines.

||Another classic in a long line of classics.|
"Hemispheres" was not appreciated fully in its day. probably because of insufficient airplay. Not as well known or celebrated as some other RUSH disks, it is outstanding.
