4 stars Counterparts is one of my favourite Rush albums of all time. It is a lot more personal than other Rush albums, with songs like Nobody's Hero, which I find to be a very good quality in this album. It is undoubtedly in my 5 for sure and has some of my favourite songs from Rush. It's not very proggy per-say, but its still a great album, especially if you're just getting into Rush. A few songs that stick out for me are Animate, Stick it Out, Nobody's Hero, Between Sun and Moon, and Leave That Thing Alone, which is one of my favourite songs. There are a few weak points on the album though (Alien Shore and The Speed of Love for me), although that is a common occurance in many Rush albums. All in all, I would suggest that you pick it up, definately if you like Rush. If you are new to Rush, it's a good starting point for them but I would suggest something more like Moving Pictures or Permanent Waves before tryingthis one out.
