4 stars This is a very strong Rush release. I agree with the reviewers that said this is Rush's best work of the 1990's. I totally agree. While Test For Echo is a good Rush release with some great tracks, Counterparts overall is heavier, stronger, and tighter. It is my opinion that Counterparts is likely that last great Rush CD. This release is gritty, energetic, and super focused both lyrically and on song execution. Highlights would be Animate, Stick It Out, Cut To The Chase, Leave That Thing Alone, Double Agent and Cold Fire. Weak songs are Nobody's Hero and Everyday Glory. Rush really were focused on all aspects of writing and recording this release. The production is strong with great basslines, heavy guitars, and precise drumming. Rush did a incredible job on this. Tour was great too. Rush rocked Reunion in Dallas.
