Country Life is the eleventh studio album by English acoustic roots duo Show of Hands. Released in 2003, it marks a departure for the band, with stronger socially and politically lyrics than the duo's previous albums, as well as showcasing the duo exploring a larger musical palette. Some of the album's lyrics concern rural issues which Knightley had taken to heart in previous years, including in the aftermath of their previous lyrical album Cold Frontier (2001).

A Show of Hands (Victor Wooten album). A Show of Hands is the first album released by bassist Victor Wooten. The album features bass guitar with only the accompaniment of vocals. The album features almost entirely slap bass, using a large amount of Wooten's signature open-hammer-pluck technique. Victor Wooten – bass, vocals, voice. Cortney and Brittany Knight – vocals, voices. Michael Saleem – vocals. Mark "Zeke" Sellers – vocals.

A Show of Hands encapsulates Rush's "new wave" period, a much maligned era in their evolution. I love this period, it's not hard to separate earlier Rush from this and appreciate what they were doing at this time, using different instrumentation, more synth and taking in strong influences from post-punk 80's contemporaries. I will give you that Peart's earnestly humanistic lyrics don't always mesh well with synth swells and the generally uplifting vibe, call it cheesy I guess

Show of Hands - 2019 Dates. Steve Knightley Tour Dates. Phil Beer Tour Dates. Oddy Luthiers have supplied Show of Hands for over 30 years. David started making instruments in the 1970’s, eventually working closely with his son Nick, who made his first instruments with David over 20 years ago. Together they have been making and repairing top quality guitars and mandolins to their clients specifications. Following David’s death in 2017 Nick is proud to continue the business and legacy in a way that he hopes his father would approve

The band's music isn't as hard rock-based as it previously was, evidenced by the more modern-sounding compositions selected for this third live album (the first Rush album to be produced completely by the band).

The actual album itself is almost 100% synth-era material, and this comes as a bit of the disappointment. The fact is this, though: synths or no, Rush is great. A live Rush experience is truly that; an experience. So A Show of Hands is only recommended for Rush die-hards only. The video release is immensely better.

Most of the material on A Show of Hands is from Power Windows (1985) and Hold Your Fire (1987). Many of the performances stick closely to the studio versions, even down to having ’til Tuesday’s Aimee Mann repeat her backing-vocal stint for Time Stand Still. The sensation of a studio recording is heightened by the remarkable sound quality of the recording (even the crowd recorded well). Rush’s prodigious chops are proven crowd pleasers, but this collection is a morass of muscle-bound technique, quasi-profound lyrics and Geddy Lee’s shrill screech. The last four numbers begin to redeem the album, but it’s too little too late for this seventy-five minute, double-LP endurance test. In This Article: Rush. Want more Rolling Stone?
