Tom Sawyer, a song by Rush

April 9, 2010

What can I say?  To try and analyze any one part of this song would be impossible, and to try and review the song as a whole would be like trying to review greatness itself.  If I had to pick something to say, it’d be that this song, well, completely rocks-everything, from the synthesizer, to the guitar solo, to Geddy Lee’s bass and distinctive vocals, to Neil Peart’s innovative drumming…that, truly, is what makes the song.  Were it not for Peart, the song would lack essentials like the sporadic tempo changes that give the song life and the unbelievable drum break towards the end.  But that’s not to say the rest of the band don’t give it their all-Lee’s synthesizer is unparalleled, and a neccessary part of the arrangement.  Alex Lifeson’s guitar solo need not be missed either, showing how much his musicianship adds to Rush’s music.
