A nice copy of a scarce Rush LP, as the band’s albums sold quite poorly in Japan.
Background: Power Windows, released in 1985, was the eleventh studio album by Rush, and it continued Rush’s interest in synthesizer-driven music that was explored to a lesser degree on Signals and Grace Under Pressure.
Helped by five singles (“The Big Money”, “Territories”, “Manhattan Project”, “Mystic Rhythms”, and “Marathon”) the album reached #9 in the UK and #10 in the U.S., where it was certified platinum.
In the UK, the album was briefly available as a limited edition picture disc LP.
Like much of the band’s ’80s output, Power Windows finds Rush juggling their hard-rock heritage with new technology to mixed results. With Alex Lifeson choosing sparse, horn-like guitar bursts over actual crunch, Geddy Lee’s synthesizers running rampant, and Neil Peart’s crisp, clinical percussion and stark lyrical themes (evoking cold urban landscapes), the result just may be the trio’s “coldest” album ever.
