First it was Dirk, and now Lerxst may be itching to release some solo tuneage. Word is legendary Rush guitar virtuoso Alex Lifeson (never enough superlatives for my boys!) has a ton of recorded material he may sift through and turn into another solo album.

 

This comes 20 years after his underrated solo project, Victor.

This album definitely strayed from the trademark Rush sound and explored some darker themes. Perhaps none more strange and beautiful than the title track (my personal favorite), which is little more than Lerxst himself reciting a W.H. Auden poem over some seriously creepy and awesome instrumental music.

How about you? What was your favorite tune off “Victor”?
