YearEnd
4 stars A fun album. This thing is high-energy 70's style hard rock throughout, never flagging.

A decent rock album, but could definetely much a Zeppelin clone. Geddy Lee adopts many of Robert Plant's vocal mannerisms - such as the cliched "ohh, yeahs" - and Alex Lifeson does gives many songs the Jimmy Page solo treatment (albiet much less sloppily and with much more direction than most of Pages' solos.) John Rutsey's drumming is decent enough, but he's no Neil Peart. The lyrics are standard rock 'n' roll fare, nothing like the thoughtful subject matter and (pseudo?) intellectualism that Mr Peart would later bring to the table. This isn't a prog album, it just happens to be by Rush. The tunes are rocking, and have a ton of youthful enthusiasm - which is something that some of Rush's later output definitely lacks. I'd take this album over Test For Echo any day - this music is vibrant and full of life.

One particularly precious attribute this album has that few others do is that it can be listened to all the way through without any loss of interest or momentum. Very enjoyable music! A great way for Rush's illustrious career to begin, and a quality album in itself.
