Nocturne
by Rush

Album: Vapor Trails (2002)
  • Geddy Lee, Rockline, May 13, 2002: "Nocturne was one of the later songs that we wrote for the record after the break that we had. There was a group of about 5 or 6 songs that came from a two week period of just what I would consider the best jams Alex and I have ever had. I really love this song, I love the drum pattern, especially the way it starts. Its kind of about the questions you can subconsciously answer in your dreams without realizing it." >>

  • Byron from Paragould, Ar, ArThe morning says, the answer is yes...
  • John from Asheville, NcOne of my favorites from Vapor Trails. I just love the atmospheric (and big!) chorus...which compliments nicely the more wistful and delicate verse. The riff and tempo segue from verse to chorus is bad-ass!
