Prog Awards – Album of the Year

Clockwork Angels picked up “Album of the Year” at last night’s Prog Awards.  Here’s BBC’s wrap up of the event.

“Canadian rock band Rush’s latest concept album, Clockwork Angels, was named Album Of The Year.

With its dystopian steampunk theme, the three-piece’s 19th studio album has earned rapturous reviews, even in the mainstream press.

Describing it as Rush’s “most solid and compelling set of songs in years”, The Guardian went on to say: “Those who worship at the temple of Rush will be in raptures; for those who remain agnostic, there may well be enough here to justify a leap of faith.”

The Clockwork Angels North American Tour kicks off tonight in Manchester, NH.
