Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays
Rush "Dreamline" Dallas, 2012
Now that they've confirmed their retirement, it was fitting that this week's entry is from Rush. The "Clockwork Angels" tour featured a string ensemble touring with them, and they certainly fill out the total sound. Even Alex steps to the mic for some background vocals.
This marks my 200th post of some of my favorite Prog Rock, both new and old. Although the genre will never reach the popularity of many others, I believe I can apply the slogan of a Nova-Scotia-made beer (Alexander Keith's Pale Ale): "Those who like it, like it a lot."
