Roll the Bones was released in 1991 and is a landmark album that blends many tempos, ideas, and musical explorations. The album marks the transition to a more pop oriented Rush album. There are four popular radio hits: "Provado", "Ghost of a Chance", "Roll the Bones", and "Dreamline" with the former reaching # 1 on the US main stream rock chart while "Where's My Thing" was Grammy nominated for best rock instrumental.
The band reunited with producer Rupert Hine for his second Rush album and "Roll the Bones" became their first US Top 5 album since 1981 peaking at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. The album also won the Canadian band that country's 1992 Juno Award for best album cover design.
The album's songwriting excels and the musicianship is first-rate: Geddy Lee's bass playing and vocals, Alex Lifeson's guitar work and Neil Peart continues his journey for the perfect drum sound. Rush has been around for many years, and has gone though many musical phases, always willing to try new things and to experiment musically, lyrically, and technologically. "Roll The Bones" lives up to its name, Rush took some chances... and still made a great record.
