"... one of the seminal albums of the modern era ..."
- PopMatters.com

"Rush have released 20 albums, but none introduced itself with lead and second singles better than Tom Sawyer and Limelight ... both of which not only remain in rotation at classic rock stations but also continue to appear in films ..."
- Rolling Stone

Moving Pictures has become Rush's most successful studio album in the US with sales exceeding four million copies and a peak chart position of number three in Billboard. The band's complex songwriting and musical virtuosity reach new heights with this material despite the preponderance of shorter, more radio-friendly songs. Recorded and mixed at Le Studio north of Montréal, Moving Pictures includes the Rush signature tracks Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Red Barchetta and the band’s highly praised instrumental, YYZ, which earned Rush its first Grammy nomination. Rolling Stone named this album the third greatest progressive rock album of all time in a 2015 feature.

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!
