Pitchfork : “In 1981, Rush fully transformed from a prog-rock trio to a mainstay of
classic rock. A 40th-anniversary reissue of Moving Pictures captures the band at their
absolute peak… Thanks to its tautness, conceptual integrity, and the fortuitous manner
in which their career ambitions and radio programmer taste intersected, Moving Pictures functioned as much a harbinger of a new artistic era as David Bowie’s Young Americans.
It peaked at No. 3 in America, their best chart position to date; the RIAA would certify it
five-times platinum.” Full review here. Score: 9/10.
