Or one of them at least. "Fly by Night" is my favorite Rush album these days (a 2014 comment) because of its power and immediacy. Anthem kicks off in a big way and the addition of Peart was truly riveting. The songwriting was growing by leaps and bounds as evidenced by By-Tor and In the End. BBB is another stellar rocker. There are a few static moments on side 2 but all in all this was the true blast- off for Rush and a relief for 70s rock fans who may have started to see some cracks in the Zeppelin machine even though Presence was still coming. I also love the easter egg video of Anthem (live) and the look of determination on Peart's face as he sets out to prove himself.

Someday I need to amend this dreadful review with a real review. (Another 2014 edit)
