Prog Reviewer
2 stars More or less, this is the pure hard rock side of Rush for those who care very much about Rush. This fan holds some solace in RUSH since it was the first of their albums I've listened to. Even as relatively new band, the drumming and guitar work is impeccable.

However, Rush aren't really forging new ground yet. This type of hard rock is only a teensy bit different than stuff coming from Led Zeppelin, the Who or Free. Everything is ''correct'' in the hard rock sense including the lyrics, the feel, the macho-ness, the blues influences, etc.

It tires easily on any non-rocker. Most progsters like to discover new things each time they listen to an album repeatedly, but RUSH offers nothing of that sort. Rush would eventually take a more complex, cerebral approach (likely with the addition of Peart), but for now, they're just a rock band having fun. Not horrible by any means, but only Rush fans should have an interest in this.

Sinusoid | 2/5 |
