A Farewell to Kings is the fifth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on September 1, 1977 by Anthem Records in Canada and by Mercury Records in the United States. It was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and was mixed at Advision Studios in London

With the popular hit single "Closer to the Heart," the trio showed that they could compose concise and traditionally structured songs, while the 11-minute "Xanadu" remains an outstanding accomplishment all these years later (superb musicianship merged with vivid lyrics help create one of Rush's best all-time tracks)

A Farewell to Kings is the fifth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on September 1, 1977. It was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and was mixed at Advision Studios in London. The band was happy with how it turned out. Geddy recalled in 1978: It’s the only one of our albums apart from ‘2112‘ that I can really live with. I’ve yet to look at it and start finding fault with it, pick it apart, you kno. t still sounds so positive.

A Farewell To Kings is a music studio album recording by RUSH (Heavy Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1977 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. The suite "Cignus X1" for instance is a classic which can put into the list of some 20-30 "progressive songs" to have in a desert island, but also the other tracks are well worth checking out.

A Farewell to Kings is the fifth studio album by Canadian progressive rock band Rush, released in 1977. The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and mixed at Advision Studios in London.

The strengths of this album are the heavy progressive style, the great musicianship, the impressive vocal range of Geddy Lee, and the improvement in Rush's songwriting abilities for normal length songs.
