180 gram Audiophile LP
The first of three consecutive studio masterpieces, Permanent Waves firmly established Rush as a household name band. Anchored by the sizzling The Spirit of Radio and assertive Freewill, the 1980 record found the group folding pop sounds of the era into its hard-rock template.
Shorter song lengths, space-age Moog keyboards, and uncongested arrangements translated into catchier material - and announced the beginning of Rush's transition away from complex prog and towards synthesized rock. Permanent Waves represents the trio's best balance of both elements.
And there's no better place to experience it than on Mobile Fidelity's astounding remaster. Sourced from the original analog tapes, this exposes you to just how much information and detail you've been missing out on hearing. Given the album's stature and dedicated fan base, these are certain to go out-of-print.
