Up until the release of 'Moving Pictures', 2112 had been considered to be the definitive Rush album. After this one reached #3 on the Billboard album chart, and became a 4x-platinum (4-million) seller, it took over that distinction. It is still the band's most popular and most successful album. The popular singles 'Tom Sawyer' and 'Limelight' came from this album, which continued the Permanent Waves formula of shorter, more radio-friendly songs.

'Moving Pictures' is the intersection between Rush's '70s art-rock style and their sequencer-laced '80s efforts. An incredible stylistic leap for the band, the songs here incorporate reggae, percolating synth and even a new wave-tinged early '80s pop sensibility. 'Tom Sawyer,' the ultimate alienated-teen saga, is the album's best known song. 'Red Barchetta' picks up where 2112 left off with futuristic, sci fi-oriented lyrics. The instrumental 'YYZ' is as far into straight-up progressive rock as the band had ever ventured. Things get socio-political on the ominous 'Witch Hunt,' and a Jamaican flavor enlivens 'Vital Signs.' The increased reliance on synthesizers and sequencers would later become irksome to old school Rush fans, but on 'Moving Pictures', electronics are tastefully applied to further the group's musical vision, making for what just might be their finest batch of songs.
