Great Moments in Prog — Part 3

 

Temple blocks! Cowbells! OK, citizens, let’s go exit stage left (see video below), for “The Trees”… where things really get interesting at 1:46; the tension starts to build at 2:24; and — whoa! — now, here we go at 2:52! Alex’s amazingly effective solo starts at 3:08. And then, one of my favorite “great moments in prog” happens from 3:25 to 3:54.

The rest of the song is appropriate election commentary.

Peart fans: check out the drum part analysis starting on p.43 of Neil Peart: Taking Center Stage – A Lifetime of Live Performance Book. And this book has all the info you need in order to build your own replica of the drum kit used in the song!
