5 stars The album that started it all, and what a start. I know...some may call it pedestrian, others may call it a Zep rip off, others may say it just doesn't cut it without Mr. Peart. To all that I say...whadda ya an idiot? This album rocks...flat out! John Rutsey may be no professor, however, for this material, he does more thana fine job. The songs are simple, but fantastic. Side two (yeah I know, a vinyl man I still am) is flawless with "What You're Doing", "In The Mood" and , of course, "Working Man" being three of the all time greatest hard rock songs. The sound of the guitars on here are simply amazing. Only AC/DC's "Let There Be Rock" tops it for sheer balls out, loud as f*ck wall of raw guitar. Funny to think that lyrically they went from "when I get home at 5 o'clock, get myself out an ice cold beer" to "tobes of hades lit by flickering torch light" in a one album bound, but tell the truth now...which lyric is actually more dated at this point?! I still love this album and to be honest....I wish they'd make another one like it...just for old time's sake. Put away the bass pedals, synths and frills and just let it rock. I know they can do it!
