Hi! Welcome to my homepage!

A page dedicated to Rush's Great Album: Roll The Bones (1991)

Musician nameInstruments played
Alex LifesonElectric and Acoustic Guitars, Backing Vocals
Neil PeartDrums and Cymbals
Geddy LeeBass Guitar, Vocals, Synthesizers
Rupert HineAdditional keyboards and vocals

Although more pop oriented, this album is one of Rush's finest! On this particular album, Rush explores melodic songs and even rap. I know that this sounds unusual for an "art rock" group, but it is definitely interesting to meld so many different styles together into a cohesive whole!

Roll The Bones is Rupert Hine's best production! Quite simply, this is Rush's third best album! Almost every single song on this cd is superb! "Roll The Bones," "Ghost Of A Chance," "Bravado" and "You Bet Your Life" are second only to "Mystic Rhythms!" "Heresy," "Where's Your Thing?," "Dreamline" and "The Big Wheel" are also quite superb! "Neurotica" and "Face Up" are also quite good! A superb work of craftsmanship!
