UK Albums Chart - #3, 1980 Billboard 200 - #4, 1980 "... technically impressive material, with limbs and notes flying all over the place." - UltimateClassicRock.com "... lyrics that are several refreshing steps above the moronic machismo and half-baked mysticism of many hard rock airs." - Rolling Stone "The band was seldom as tight, focused and unfettered ... the myriad elements that make Rush so unique and organic are fully manifest. Lee’s vocals were never more expressive or emotional; Lifeson’s guitar solos were rarely as succinct yet devastating. Peart’s lyrics took a 'quantum leap forward' ... he can and should remain quite proud of the poetry he produced ... Rush had already made history: it was finally prepared to produce work that remains relevant and enduring." - PopMatters.com Permanent Waves was the commercial breakthrough for Rush, marking the beginning of shorter, more accessible radio-friendly songs which greatly expanded the group's fan base and led to dramatically increased sales, past the platinum mark in both the US and Canada. The first American top five album for Rush (it peaked at number four), Permanent Waves includes the band's essential songs The Spirit Of Radio and Freewill. This is the remastered 2015 version.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
