I never need to hear The Trees again, though.
Never liked it? It certainly can't be the played out factor. Not when you're trumpeting the next two records, the singles from which have been played about 10 times as much
No, I liked it well enough, but it's overplayed relative to its goodness. The overplays also include all the times I heard it on Chronicles, which for a long time in my youth was the only Rush I owned, besides 2112 and a cassette of Grace Under Pressure. Additionally, the lyrics are repugnant, but I do appreciate that Neil Peart realizes how wrong he was :) I agree that the singles from Permanent Waves are much more overplayed (especially Spirit of the Radio), but I guess I like them better, and anyway, the "deep cuts" on PW are where it's at. As for the singles on MP, well, I can definitely live without hearing those again, but they're still fun songs. I don't like that album as much as most people. I prefer the two albums that came after. And as far as THOSE singles are concerned, I'd say it's basically impossible to overplay Subdivisions.
