4 stars The third album by Rush Caress of Steel shows the band heading towards more of a progressive sound, we could see signs of this in Fly by Night. With the addition of Neil Peart the bands sound was changing, which was very good thing and the band used mystical lyrics from stories like Lord of the Rings and such. This album is a very good hard rock album and there are no sign of keyboards anywhere on Caress of Steel. Each song is a real treat to off with is the opener Bastille Day, a usual good hard rock track from Rush. Next is the only bad song on the album I think I'm going bald, I'm not a big fan of this song it does not really grab my attention at all, kind of unusual for me, most of the time i like all the Rush classics. Next is song Lake side Park, a song about some memories from Neil Pearts childhood, a very underated Rush song. Next is the highlight of the album The Necromancer, this epic hard rocking song which displays some great technical guitar playing from Lifeson, he pretty much takes over the whole album with his amazing guitar playing. The fountain of Lamneth is the last song on Caress of Steel, this song kind of takes a while to get into, a mores slow paced epic, this song does not flow as well like a 2112 or Cygnus book 2. Overall this is a good album from Rush, you hear their sound getting better as each album is released. Their next album would be their first real masterpiece. This one is a overlooked Rush album so I'm giving this 4 stars
