    First off, Happy Easter to you guys.
    Second, that's a pretty cool easter gift!

    I had no idea they would release a new album. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who felt as if it was done. They did a really amazing job keeping it all under wraps.

    But it just keeps getting better. Odd time signatures are making a comeback in this new album!



    This sounds like Rush revitalised. New prog, but it sounds so much like their classic sound. Not only that, but I'm willing to bet that this is only a small part in an epic. Oh yeah, I think there's going to be an epic in this album. Hopefully an instrumental.

    It really sounds like they're giving it their all in this one, going back to their roots with a fresh look. But I think it's safe to assume that this will be their final album.

    Cheers and Happy Easter!

    Easter Bunny or April Fool's? If it's real it's what i thought - how long until they all get bored outta their skulls?

    What do you mean "bored outta their skulls"? Are you talking about Rush?

    Yeah - I hear retirement can be boring at first - hope to find out for myself in maybe 7 years or so. ;)

    I think this might also have to do with the fact that 2112 was released on april 1st 1976.

  9. The description in your YouTube link says, "If you've made it here, you deserve to know that this is an April Fool's joke. The song is actually "3 Years older" By Steven Wilson."...

    I hate you...

    But thanks for sharing this song.

    Yeah. I always do an april fools thread on April 1. It was kinda a flop this year. Usually gets more traction (and whining). This song sounds so much like Rush, I told myself that some people would believe that. Ah well.

  11. Oh, I believed it. The bass playing, at some points does sound like it could be Ged, but it doesn’t in some other spots.

    I didn’t think it was them after halfway through the song, but then got real hopeful, and actually went to the YouTube link to copy the link and convert it into an MP3, until I saw the description.

    I am surprised it didn’t get as much traction myself.

    Is that the same Steve Wilson like from Porcupine Tree?
