So apprently there will be a novel to go along with the album;

http://www.amazon.com/Clockwork-Ange...ockwork+angels

Quote:
A remarkable collaboration that is unprecedented in its scope and realization, this exquisitely wrought novel represents an artistic project between the bestselling science fiction author Kevin J. Anderson and the multiplatinum rock band Rush. The newest album by Rush, Clockwork Angels, sets forth a story in Neil Peartís lyrics that has been expanded by him and Anderson into this epic novel. In a young manís quest to follow his dreams, he is caught between the grandiose forces of order and chaos. He travels across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy with lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The mind-bending story is complemented with rich paintings by the five-time Juno Award winner for Best Album Design, Hugh Syme.

Yup. A friend of mine ordered some kind of fan pack from the UK that included a little booklet with the first three chapters. Nothing really ground breaking in the first three chapters, but I'm hoping the rest of the novel will help to flesh out some of the album (not that it really needs it).

I think they are planning on a spring tour-prob do all the outside sheds. I am sure they will come through here. This is a good market for them-even though they get Zero radio play.

Their show is amazing this time around!! They added a string section and the songs just come alive. They have the pyro and a huge light show as well.

It is amazing they play at such a high level still- prob better than ever- and that says a lot.

There is absolutely not a band out there that can match them in concert. Flawless!!

I started reading the book, but it was a pretty generic fantasy "peasant boy living a simple life gets swept up into the bigger wider world" introduction that really didn't hold me interest.

And the way that lyrics from all albums were abhorrently shoe-horned into the narrative made me cringe every time they came up.

I'll probably get through it eventually, but I have to admit that I'm disappointed so far.

lol Yep I had a tough time at first- but it kind of grows on you. Lots of Rush references- he is definately a fan. I lost track of how many lyrics were put into the text. I really like the art work though.

Personally I think Neil should have just wrote the book himself? His other books are excellent- especially Ghost Rider- a classic!!

I'm curious why they're focusing on synthpop era songs this tour.

I am planning to see them in Virginia Beach this year- my son just got stationed there with the Navy!!

Can't wait.

This is one of the Biggest productions they have done-Amazing show! There is not a band out there that can touch them.

Some of the songs are 20 years old now and I think they figured it was time to dust them off. They sounded fresh and new. They filmed in Dallas and will be putting a DVD out soon- so I think they wanted some songs never recorded live for it as well.
