Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 379/500!

Moving Pictures is the eighth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. It was recorded and mixed from October to November 1980 at Le Studio located in Morin Heights, Quebec, Canada, and released on February 12, 1981. Throughout the years 2014 and 2015, Rush celebrate their 40th anniversary with vinyl reissues of albums from their Mercury era.

What can you say? Moving Pictures became the band's biggest selling album in the U.S., rising to #3 on the Billboard charts. It remains Rush's most popular and commercially successful studio recording. Rush's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reached new heights on this album.

Recorded and mixed from October to November 1980 at Le Studio, Moving Pictures followed a more radio-friendly format and includes several signature tracks, including "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," "Red Barchetta," and the band's highly praised instrumental, “YYZ,” which is the IATA airport identification code of Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The album cover is a monument to triple entendre. Movers are physically moving pictures, people are crying because the pictures passing by are emotionally “moving,” and the back cover depicts a film crew making a “moving picture” of the whole scene.

"Not only is 1981's Moving Pictures Rush's best album, it is undeniably one of the greatest hard rock albums of all time...Rush proved with Moving Pictures that there was still uncharted territory to explore within the hard rock format, and were rewarded with their most enduring and popular album." -Greg Prato, allmusic.com
