Rush has been a significant source of inspiration for me as well.
And I think Peart is one of the world's greatest poets. Their early
releases were good (at least the ones after Peart joined the band),
but I especially like their work after their talents matured a bit.
"Permanent Waves" was the first Rush album that really impressed me
with it's philosophical lyrics. Their albums continued to get even
better from that point onward. As with Yes and Pink Floyd, their
latter work stands as a testament to the value of having >2 decades
of experience in their art. Especially for those artists who were
very good to begin with.
