After touring their previous album Presto, the band took a break before they started work on a follow-up in early 1991. Roll the Bones was a return to commercial success for the band, reaching No. 3 in the US, No. 10 in the UK, and No. 11 in Canada. Between 1991 and 1992, six songs from the album were released as singles
Roll The Bones" was the 1st Rush album NOT to be released on vinyl in the US. That's why my vinyl Rush releases stop at "Presto". I just have to say that this album starts Rush off on a new bang in the 90's. Now first off, if you do not like variety, this album is not a good one for you. Because every song on this decent album is somewhat different from the rest.
Roll the Bones . 1991. Well, you can stake that claim Good work is the key to good fortune Winners take that praise Losers seldom take that blame. If they don't take that game And sometimes the winner takes nothing We draw our own designs But fortune has to make that frame. We go out in the world and take our chances Fate is just the weight of circumstances That's the way that lady luck dances. Roll the bones Roll the bones. Why are we here? Because we're here Roll the bones Roll the bones. Why does it happen? Because it happens Roll the bones Roll the bones. Because it happens Roll the bones Roll the bones. Face up. (Lee/Lifeson/Peart).
Roll the Bones is the fourteenth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on September 3, 1991 by Atlantic Records. Its total length is 48:04. Rush's previous release Presto opted towards a more simple hard rock sound. Roll the Bones was Rush's highest charting album since Moving Pictures as it reached on the Billboard 200 chart and on the UK albums chart. It has since gone Platinum in the . The strengths of the album are its simple and radio friendly hard rock sound, Lifeson's increased guitar work, the theme of the album that compares life to gambling as you have to take chances to have success in life. The weaknesses of the album include the several filler tracks on the album. Here are my thoughts on each track.
From a lyrical perspective, 1991's Roll the Bones is quite possibly Rush's darkest album (most of the songs deal with death in no uncertain terms), but from a musical point of view, the record treads territory (highbrow melodic hard rock) similar to its recent predecessors, with only a few surprises thrown in for good measure. These include an amusing rap section in the middle of the title track, a welcome return to instrumentals with "Where's my Thing?," and one of the band's finest songs of the '90s in the gutsy "Dreamline.

Neil Peart ("Roll The Bones Radio Special"): "Roll The Bones' is the perfect title, because through all of the thoughts that I go through on the album, about all these nasty things that happen, and all these terrible things that could happen to you: a drunk in a stolen car could run over you on your way home tomorrow. night, and you could have the best-laid plans for what you want to do, but there's still that element of chance that it could all go wrong. But the bottom line of that is, 'Take the chance, roll the bones . The young boy on the album cover of Rush 1992 long-player of the same name comes to life.
