Just thought I would also add.....about the novel, Neil and Kevin have been friends for quite a while. Keven has written lots of official...authorized
by LucasFilms StarWars books, and also multiple Dune books...or co-wrote them.
The novel is set to be released in September to coincide with Rush's tour. The audio only book will be "read" to you by Neil himself.
I'm still in awe...for lack of a better description at the lyrics to Clockwork Angels. Some of the best ever. EVER.
And not just from Neil. It is supposedly set to be fiction, the tale of a young man who set out to follow his dreams in a futuristic world. While on
his journey 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.
However, read the lyrics to the whole album. Including the liner notes. They look awful familiar to the history of Rush, and Neils own personal life
and turmoil in the late 90's with losing his wife and then only child in a very short span.
I read that Neil set out to write the absolute best lyrics for this album that he has ever written. And I personally think he accomplished that. This
may even be better than 2112. Or Hemispheres.
