4 stars Might be hard rock's greatest debut album

I played this album a lot back in the day and still think its a great sample of bluesy and arse kickin fun. I think the best songs on this debut are Finding My Way, Here Again, and What You're Doing, because of the tasty big riffs that Alex is throwing around. It's fun to hear Geddy with vocal cords in full youthful glory and crank this album way up. The speed and power of Lifeson is something to behold here.

While I thought this album was sub-par *for Rush* for many years I have since seen the error of prog snobbery tendencies and left them at the curb. The first three Rush albums are among their best. Absolutely killer hard rock shelled out with the benefit of youthful endurance and power. They got more sophisticated, more measured, and more refined over time, but they never got any "better" than their first three album, if rawk listening pleasure is important to you.
