The renowned trio's first new collection of original material in more than five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner Records. Clockwork Angels is the band's 20th studio album. The recording of Clockwork Angels began in April 2010 with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz — who also collaborated with the band on their last studio album, 2007's Snakes & Arrows. Rush co-produced both records. The first two songs, "Caravan" and "BU2B," were completed during that first session at Nashville's Blackbird studios and performed nightly during the wildly successful Time Machine Tour, which ran from June 2010 to June 2011.

Work on Clockwork Angels resumed in the fall of 2011 at Revolution Recording in Toronto after the tour's finale, with additional strings (arranged by David Campbell) recorded at Hollywood's Ocean Way Studios earlier this year. Lyrically, Clockwork Angels chronicles a young man's quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, an exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The novelization of Clockwork Angels is being written by science fiction writer Kevin J. Anderson in collaboration with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.

The material is more fresh, interesting, and new than anything else that they have produced since the '80's. I have no problem with the mix, although the pressing isn't perfectly clear - some surface noise on new surface.

oh dear oh dear

one of the worst sounding recent lp's I have heard, and that's saying something. However, it does not appear to be the vinyl copies that are at fault, more the overall mix/mastering of the album itself - judging from the other reviews I have read of the digital counterparts, no pun intended. another vapor trails scenario maybe? makes me so frustrated that recording techniques seem to have taken a backward step in recent times. shocking.
