RUSH - Hemispheres [40th Anniversary] (180g Remastered Vinyl LP Box Set, 2018)
Review from another site: 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. It's to Rush's credit that these elements enhance their sound instead of obscuring it. In fact, "La Villa Strangiato" would become one of the band's best-loved '70s efforts and a long-standing concert favorite.
This special 40th Anniversary release includes a slipcase cover with the Hemispheres Remastered in a gatefold cover, two LPs containing bonus Live Tracks from the Pinkpop Festival on June 4, 1979 and the November 20 1978 Arizona concert, all in a gatefold cover, a 24 page book (LP size) with photos and new artwork by Hugh Syme and 5700 word essay by Rob Bowman. There is also a download voucher for 320kbps AAC MP4s files that expires on December 31, 2020.
