Rush was never a band known to play the same sort of thing for any extended
period - they often pushed the boundaries of rock and their formidable list of
albums helped to spread their music to a wider audience. By 1989, a change was
inevitable and with their 13th studio album, Presto, it was a change for the
better. Presto marked the beginning of a transition period, moving away from a
sound dominated by synthesizers and toward more traditional rock
instrumentation. The synths were toned back while the guitars were brought up
allowing the emphasis to return to the rhythm instruments, resurrecting the
groove that Rush maintains so very well.
Geddy Lee and Neal Peart are in good form, but Alex Lifeson is the real story -
he can be heard in grand force. Lifeson's leads in "Superconductor" are
brilliant, Lee does great solo work on "Show Don't Tell" and Peart's percussion
on "Scars" features a complex tribal rhythm drum pattern in which both acoustic
and electronic drums are utilized - a synthesis of the two that's accessible
without compromising. Each of these tracks, along with "The Pass", reached the
top of the Album Rock Tracks charts with "Show Don't Tell" hitting #1. Presto
climbed to #16 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.
Rush made a stab at greatness with Presto and Rupert Hine's deft production had
much to do with its success.
