Rocksmith 2014 DLC 8/23 – Rush II

Hello Rocksmith fans!

I hope you’re ready for a challenge because this week is a five pack from Canadian prog masterminds @RushTheBand!

We already had confirmation of Freewill (music game debut), and Fly By Night but here’s what else is coming…

From their 1975 album, Hemispheres and now the longest song in the Rocksmith library (dethroning Free Bird [9:08]), it’s La Villa Strangiato (9:46), yup for the first time ever in music game history this twelve part odyssey is sure to tangle and callous even the most experienced guitarist’s fingers. Good luck!

Next up we have the highly requested Working Man off their 1974 self-titled album. Are you ready for this one? It may be shorter than La Villa but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to have to keep up with Geddy and Alex…

To close off the pack we get the progish-ballad, Closer To The Heart off 1977’s A Farewell to Kings. Bonus points if you can sing it like Bubbles..

Combining Rush II with the first Rush Pack + Headlong Flight and the on-disc 2014 track of Spirit of The Radio gives us 12 tracks! That’s right, Rush is now tied with @JimiHendrix and @RiseAgainst for the most represented in Rocksmith! That can only mean that Foo Fighters III is being worked on as we speak…


Rush II Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

All arrangements in E Standard


 

 

Is this the Rush pack you’ve been waiting for? Or are you still holding out for 2112? Let us know!

Personal opinion: even if you don’t like Rush, are you really going to pass up a 9:46 minute song? 😀

The Rocksmith supreme collection of songs will finally be complete when Rush’s musical masterpiece “2112” graces its store.
Yes, this is the Rush pack I’ve been waiting for…but that doesn’t mean I’m only waiting for one!!

Downloading it now. I can’t see how this won’t be my pick for pack of the year. Rocksmith hit a home run with four of my most wanted rush songs in this pack. Maybe “the trees” will make a mix pack someday. Lol 😀

I am so happy today …. its been quite a while since we have had a dedicated Rush pack …. for us musicians our here, this is a real master’s course!

Not my favorite Rush songs (but then again, most of those are already in Rocksmith thanks to Song Pack I). But more Rush is always a good thing!

Great pack, but I still wish The Trees was part of it. There is still unrest in my forest…

This is an awesome DLC. As a diehard Rush fan since 2112 this DLC is perfect. This DLC is vintage Rush. Keep up the great work Rocksmith.

Any additional Rush songs are a win IMO. The hardest part, other than bumbling through Lifeson’s masterful guitar licks, is deciding which one to play first!

I’m in. Best pack on Rocksmith to date. So, when you guys do Rush Pack III can we have a little Xanadu along with 2112…?

I’m happy that 2112 was not part of this pack; only because I believe that 2112 is deserving to be a pack on it’s own!

Yea it’s irritating to just hear Temples on the radio. It’s incomplete by itself.

Guest

Guest

It does have Closer to the Heart…. Enjoy

Oh wow! Absolutely awesome pack, probably even better than the first one imo, especially for La Villa Strangiato, I was not expecting that to be here. I’m a huge fan of this song and it’s gonna be a blast to play !
All ohter four songs re great too. We’ll be all talking about dat bass, but guitar parts should be nice too
