Rush - Permanent Waves (1980).

An 8bit version of the classic Rush album. I'm going to Germany and I'm leaving tonight. So I can't upload anything for a week.

Permanent Waves became Rush's first US Top 5 album hitting and was the band's fifth Gold (eventually Platinum) selling album.

Permanent Waves is the seventh studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in January 1980 on Anthem Records. After touring to support the band's previous album Hemispheres (1978) ended, the band members took a short break before they regrouped to work on new material. The album marked a departure in the band's musical style towards tighter song structures and songs more suitable for radio airplay

Permanent Waves became Rush's first US top five album, hitting on the Billboard 200, and their fifth Gold (later Platinum) selling album. Both of the singles "The Spirit of Radio" and "Freewill" have continued to receive significant radio airplay since the album's release. The writing of the album began in July 1979, at Lakewoods Farm in Ontario on Georgian Bay, Lake Huron while Neil Peart began writing lyrics in a cottage nearby. Rush began with an instrumental jam, which they named "Uncle Tounouse. Parts of this were used in the songs on the album. While Peart worked on lyrics, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson would work on musical ideas in the basement.

Permanent Waves is the band’s seventh studio album, released on January 14th, 1980. It was recorded at Le Studio, Morin Heights, Quebec, and mixed at Trident Studios in London. The tracks were laid down just shy of four weeks, in part attributed to the idyllic working conditions of Morin Heights. The Spirit Of Radio is one of the most commercial songs Rush has ever produced, containing several different musical elements, even a touch of reggae

Permanent Waves is the seventh studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on January 14, 1980, by Mercury Records in the United States. Its total length is 35:35. The band's lineup included vocalist, bassist, and keyboards player Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer Neil Peart. Rush's previous release Hemispheres was their most progressive album they had done. The album was the band's most popular release yet as it reached on Billboard 200 chart and on the UK albums chart. It has since gone Platinum in the . and Canada, as well as Gold in the . The strengths of this album are the progressive, but radio friendly style, the great musicianship, the excellent lyrics and themes, and the abundance of terrific catchy Rush hits. There are no weaknesses on Permanent Waves. Here are my thoughts on each track. 1. "The Spirit of Radio" 4:59 (5/5).

Prior to Permanent Waves, Rush's trademark style involved sprawling twenty minute epics consisting of multiple distinct sections, avant-garde instrumentation, and a sound that, while great, would be considered too "stoner" for any radio appeal. On Permanent Waves, Rush enters the 80’s and the beginning of a new musical direction, compiling what is in essence a transition album between their sound of the 70’s and were they were going in the 80’s.
