3 stars Is this a prog album or not ?

This album is a nice development from the debut album. I suspect the development is named Neil Peart who made his debut on this album. The result is a pretty amazing album. It is still rooted in hard rock and blues. But some clear prog rock influences has sneaked in. I also detect THE BEATLES in this album. I guess that's where the majority of the prog rock influences comes from. There is not much, if any, of the usual suspects (YES, GENESIS etc etc) here. But most of all, there is some major good tunes here. I am not a fan of songs like Anthem. But I really like the progressive songs like In The End, the title track and By-Tor And The Snowdog. Rivendell also gets a star in my book. Actually, there is no real weakness on this album whatsoever. I have been listening to it for the best part of 25 years and I still like it. It is not one of Rush finest hours....... but it is close. Very close. It is an album which makes you smile and appreciate Rush. It is also the first real Rush album.

3.5 stars from me.
