Often Overlooked Rush late-70s Masterpiece Posted by: from: on A Farewell to Kings is an album that is often overlooked by the casual prog fans, but is nonetheless essential to any Rush fan's collection. Farewell to Kings contains six songs, the most recognizable being "Closer to the Heart", Rush's first big hit single. The title track opens the album on a good note, but the album highlight is definitely "Xanadu". While not as polished as "2112", the title track from their previous album, "Xanadu" holds its own as a Rush classic, at times playing at a break-neck speed with many twists and turns along the way. In the song, the narrator is on a quest to find "Xanadu", a mythical place where he will find immortality. Also, it is the first Rush song to feature synthesizers. "Xanadu" truly is a triumph for the group. Another highlight is the closing track, "Cygnus X-1", a delirious thriller that leaves us on a cliffhanger. Fortunately, the song has a second part; "Hemispheres", the title track of their next album. While A Farewell to Kings is a little rough around the edges, and the "filler" tracks aren't as solid as other Rush albums of the era, Farewell to Kings is still a treat to any Rush fan.

My Fav. Rush album Posted by: from: on This CD is just a masterpiece from start to finish. Xanadu is my favorite but all these tracks are classics. This was Rush in their prime. One bit of advice...the louder the better.
