3 stars Main reason to purchase...the Ytse Jam. Could be chiropractician bonanza because of the serious neck pain due to headbanging. A signature song as memorable as YYZ (a Rush anthem). Lots of time breaks tooked from a Rush repertoire. But a solid debut. Kevin Moore shows that he masterizes the 80's keyboard sound quite enough to scrape off the cheesy effect. Almost every intro starts with a great, catchy keyboard line. Moore is my favorite DT musician and keyboardist of the 90's. Too bad he decided to leave the boat. Anyway, you can appreciate his art in this fine record. Sounds 80's by the way. Very 80's. Dominci's voice don't pass the test in my opinion. But it's less irritating than the stratospherics vocals of Labrie. Labrie shouts more than he sings sometimes. Dominici's has obvious vocal limits has shown in Light Fuse and get Away. Find the spot where his voice kinda 'cracks'. Funny. Anyway, as usual, superior bass by Myung and solid double-bass drum by Portnoy. Songs are not oscar-winning, but they are efficient. The're easy to remember and, as I said, very catchy. Could be a hard pill to swollow but just picture yourself in 1989 when the Karate Kid was cool... Man, I had a crush on Cheryl from the Whiz Kids...What was I thinking!?!
