Producer Nick Raskulinecz on Rush's Clockwork Angels

Rush In The Studio Live With Jeff Woods
Ahead of Clockwork Angels release tomorrow, MusicRadar has just posted an interview with the album's producer Nick Raskulinecz. In the interview, Nick touches upon each of the album's 12 tracks and his role as a producer:
“Part of my responsibility as a producer – the biggest part of my job, really – is to be there for the artist and to help them see their vision through," says Nick Raskulinecz. The Grammy-winning producer, who first worked with Rush on 2007's Snakes & Arrows, reconvened with the group in 2010 to begin sessions for Clockwork Angels, the sterling concept album masterpiece which will be released tomorrow, 12 June.

"This album was Rush’s vision," says Raskulinecz. "It wasn’t mine. I was there to make sure it was played as brilliantly as they could play it, sung as high as Geddy Lee could sing it, and have the guitar solos bring me to tears.

“I feel like we achieved all of those elements. There’s so much emotion that we captured, just total from-the-gut expression. Three dudes making music – that’s Rush!”
