3 stars This single is certainly best appreciated if viewed as rare Rush nostalgia rather than a serious release. Standard Rock N' Roll numbers with not a hint of the Progressive Metal monster Rush would become a mere three years later. While dragged out a little too long by a ridiculous A Cappella verse the cover of Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away is certainly more interesting than The Rolling Stones version and Geddy Lee's even higher than usual vocals are good for a smirk. You Can't Fight It is driven by a catchy Alex Lifeson riff and sounds like a Led Zeppelin II leftover, a song that could easily have slotted into Rush's 1974 debut, perhaps replacing Need Some Love? A wonderful addition to any Rush collector's library but more casual fans, particular of Rush's later material, are likely to be underwhelmed.
