About this album

Clockwork Angels is the 20th full-length studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. The album was recorded between 2010 and 2011 at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and Revolution Recording in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was released on June 12, 2012. The Clockwork Angels Songfacts reports that the storyline traces a young man’s journey through a world of steampunk and alchemy and an unyielding Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life.

Two singles from the album, “Caravan” and “BU2B”, were released to radio stations and made available for digital download on June 1, 2010. Following the release of these two songs, the band embarked on the Time Machine Tour in 2010 and 2011. The tour featured the first live performances of “Caravan” and “BU2B” as part of the nightly set list. Clockwork Angels was completed following this tour. The album’s second single, titled “Headlong Flight”, was released on April 19, 2012.

    I only liked Caravan on first listen and dismissed the rest as boring, but I just listened to it and it's "clicked". I think it's an amazing album now.

    Loved this upon first listen, and every subsequent listen just makes me love it more and more.

    Interesting several people mentioned "several listens". It's true, this one takes time but burrows into the brain and stays there. It rocks but it also astounds with its originality. In other words: it's everything we loved about Rush of old. They nailed it with this one, and it sounds like they know it. A true masterpiece.

    took me about a dozen listens to start to truly appreciate this CD (heck each song is so different and requires alot of thought on its own, afterall)...really love Anarchist (the beat gives me an image of a race horse galloping along) and wish them well...of course the garden has me reaching for the tissue box, its so visceral.
