3 stars Many people who I know that like Rush don't seem to like this album. They say it is not Rush because they are not playing their own creative music. However, the music on Feedback is what got them into playing music and creating their own. The album opens with Summertime Blues, Blue Cheer style, and it is a hard rocker. Ged and Neil's fills in it are impressive. Another excellent tune is their cover of Steven Stills' For What It's Worth. You can hear the boys improvisations over the original tune, and it creates a magical song. Other highlights include Neil Youngs' Mr. Soul, and Robert johnson's Crossroads, the latter of which was exceptionally recreated live on the R30 tour. While this may be some excellent music, it is in no sense Prog music. It's just a bunch of different tunes of different artists on one short EP. Still an excellent disc to get your rock onto though, with Geddy sounding better than before Counterparts, Alex laying down some soulful solos, and Pratt as always playing his best, with creative fills.
