Presto is the thirteenth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. It was released November 21, 1989 by Anthem Records and was the band's first album released internationally by Atlantic Records following the group's departure from Mercury. After the Hold Your Fire 1987 tour ended in 1988, the group members reconvened in December to decide their next step and agreed to take six months off before starting on a new album. Presto marked another change in Rush's sound, with guitar taking a more dominant. Presto is Rushs 13th studio album, released in 1989. It was recorded at Le Studio in Morin Heights and at McClear Place in Toronto. Presto was Rushs first album with Atlantic Records, which the band signed to in early 1989 after a longstanding relationship with MercuryPolyGram. It was co-produced by Rupert Hine, an English musician, songwriter and producer who had worked with Saga, The Fixx, Howard Jones, and Bob Geldof. One strange quirk at the time was the fact that the first side of Presto was much longer than the second, forcing Rush to instruct fans to play the A side much louder to compensate for sound loss. When Rush Closed Out the 80s With the Transitional Presto. Ryan Reed. Paul Natkin, Getty Images. Judging solely in superficial terms, 1989's Presto is a minor offering in Rush 's massive discography. Released in a wasteland of rock production, the album's indistinct sonic vibe falls somewhere between Rush's synth-driven early '80s era and their guitar-heavy return of the late '90s and early '00s. Then there's that hideous album cover, which features a levitating rabbit in a magic hat. Those warning signs aren't totally irrelevant. NOTE: No copyright infringement intended.

On this return to a more guitar-oriented sound after the synth period that dominated the '80s, the bandmembers emerge from the electronic fog and try to reorient themselves to once again working with their more traditional setup. While none of the songs here are out-and-out terrible, listening to the album definitely gives you the sense that things just aren't quite clicking, as if the band is just a little bit rusty after stepping away from this kind of songwriting for nearly a decade.

Presto was the first attempt since 1981 Moving Pictures, to return to Alexs guitar leading the songs. Before the recording of Presto, the band decided to take a six-month break, since they were free of deadlines and obligations for the first time in fifteen years
