3 stars Roll the bones from 1991 was the first Rush album from a new decade the '90's. Being almost the same with the predecesor, both in manner of composing and playing , Rush did a thing better on this one face the Presto album , the production is a little better but aswell crisp and very flat. Now, I'm a moderate Rush fan, I like almost everything they released over the years, Hold your fire being the most enjoyble album by them in my opinion, but Roll the bone is not a bad album either. I think that Rush enter the '90's very well with this album, in fact is a typical Rush album, with all the ingredients for a good and solid release. Everybody knows that the early '90's , 1991-1992 and even 1993 were entirley acaparated by a new wave in music, grunge or alternative music. Rush aswell did has some hard times in that period, aswell like other giants from '70 and '80, their music was no more something really exceiting as it was before. Rush manage to create a good album full of good pieces, not necesarly very inventive or brilliant but as on every Rush album, there is heart in their music, that's way they survied so many years. I must confess that Roll the bones is my fav Rush album from the '90's , who beats very easy Test for echo for ex. Every pieces from here stands as good to my ears, not a single weak one, Dreamline, Bravado, Heresy and the instrumental one Where's my thing all shines , and shows that Rush is still among the best in their genre and known to survive as no other band over the years. So I will give to Roll the bone s 3 solid stars for sure, agood album for sure but nothing really special.
