I made a trip to Real City today, and interspersed between the hellish traffic jams, I picked up a copy of the new Rush album, Clockwork Angels. As I sat becalmed in traffic, I gave it a spin. My initial take is that it’s pretty good, and Geddy’s bass work carries the album. Perhaps I’ll have more to come — it’s a concept album, but since I was sitting on the Interstate, I figured it was poor form to read the lyric sheet while driving, even if I wasn’t going anywhere.
I’m also kicking around a story idea, and got to play with it a little while I burned a quarter-tank of gas. And how was your day?
