Rush – Hemispheres (CD)
Rush – Hemispheres
Hemispheres is the sixth studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1978. The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales. This album continues Rush's trend of using the fantasy and science fiction lyrics written by Neil Peart. The album contains examples of Rush's adherence to progressive rock standards including the use of epic, multi-movement song structures, complex rhythms and time signatures, and flexible guitar solos, like those found in La Villa Strangiato. The music is a half a semi-tone over Geddy's usual voice pitch. It is unknown if the vocals or music were pitched, or if he actually attempted sing higher than usual. This may account for the separate vocal sessions.
