Requested move[edit]

Rush (Rush album)Rush (album) — Renamed as a preemptive disambiguation. While there may be several albums named Rush, none are listed on Wikipedia, and those that exist may not merit a writeup under this title. Anyway, the debut album by the band Rush would likely be the most notable. edgarde 08:35, 14 December 2006 (UTC)


Add  * '''Support'''  or  * '''Oppose'''  on a new line followed by a brief explanation, then sign your opinion using ~~~~.
  • Support — as per nom. If it's the only album by that title in Wikipedia, it's certainly more notable than any other albums named "Rush" that might exist. Use of the word "Rush" twice in the title appears needlessly redundant. Robotman1974 22:58, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support per nom and Robotman. --Serge 17:56, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - better title. -Part Deux 20:20, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support, no sense in having "Rush" twice in the title. PC78 10:25, 17 December 2006 (UTC)


Add any additional comments:

Some background on preemptive disambiguations, which are in most cases a mistake.

  • There are multiple precedents for undoing preemptive disambiguations — EP7, LP5, Manowar.
  • The Eric Clapton album of that title is a movie soundtrack called Rush_(soundtrack). As the Rush debut album will likely be the most notable article with the title Rush (album), any other instances should use either the {{otheruses4}} template (as is currently in use), or the {{otheruses}} template (which links to a DAB page).
  • There is a current arbitration in effect on the subject of editors who insist on preemptive disambiguation. They are going against both precedent and the majority of editors. If you want to advocate for preemptive DAB, you might want to comment in that arbitration. — edgarde 08:45, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

orphaned in-line references[edit]

Found these at the top of the article:

Neither seems worth including, but perhaps (for instance) an editor was going to seek a sub-page on Billboard or something, so I'm save both links here. — edgarde 09:22, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Alternate Cover?[edit]

Can anybody tell me the difference between the alternate cover and the main cover? On this article, they appear to be the same thing, only pictured twice... Any explanations? 22:22, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

One is supposed to be the original pink-lettered cover, the other the corrected color. These will probably both be deleted from this article before too long. / edgarde 23:29, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I will delete the alternate cover. I can't see any difference between the two. Sittingonfence 00:38, 26 June 2007 (UTC)


There is said that these song lenghts refer to the remastered CD version, but are they really different on the vinyl version or the first CD-release? -- 17:43, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Fancy Dancer/Garden Road[edit]

I've changed "what may be the unrecorded original song" to "the original songs", because Fancy Dancer and Garden Road have both been recorded, though they've never been officially released. I found recordings of them both on YouTube. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:16, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Date error(s)[edit]

ANC 1-1001 is a CD and is listed as being a 1977 release. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:11, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Early Canada and US releases in this article are listed as being from 1972 which is obviously an error since the first actual release was in early 1974. Someone with edit rights should correct this error, PLEASE! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:49, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

limited POV reception[edit]

Should "Reception" be included as an entire article section with only one review? That lends undue weight to the one review (which, in this case, is a bit narrow-minded and doesn't take the album for what it is but for what the reviewer wants it to be - but the point about imbalance (good or bad) would remain regardless). Maybe just delete the paraphrase section, retaining only the link box, until more reviews can be scrounged up? Either way, more reviews need to be scrounged up. If 2+ reviews say the same thing or if they provide alternate views, then great. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:14, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Progressive Rock[edit]

Just as "Jack Sparrow" always says "There ought to be a 'Captain' somewhere in there," shouldn't the term "Progressive Rock" occur somewhere in this article? Rush is, after all, a Progressive Rock band. Perhaps more-so than "Heavy Metal."

This album isn't progressive rock. Their later albums are but this debut should not be considered a progressive album, though the subtitle "heavy metal" probably would fit this one record. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:35, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
