Don't leave this one alone


Rush has been nominated for a few Grammys, two of them for instrumental tracks. This one is from 1993's "Counterparts." It was after Geddy's keyboard phase, when their new producer wanted to really bring the band back to its power trio roots. And that this album did. It's a great listen and deals with a lot of interesting subject matter like sexuality and love. "Leave That Thing Alone," is the aforementioned instrumental. It is absolutely sublime. The bass groove in it is great, the guitar playing is some of Lifeson's finest and Peart, as always, blows me away. Oh and that bass! Damn! So smooth and sexy. Check it out:
