3 stars The first Rush release I bought, way back in '75. The sound and production is not the best, even on the cd. (I don't have the remaster, but it has to be better!) Musically, it is far superior to Fly By Night, but that isn't a hard thing to achieve! (See my review for that one!) The Necromancer is tremendous, very dark and disturbing, as is The Fountain of Lamneth. The best short song here, unnoticed by many, is - I Think I'm Going Bald. The guitar work is very impressive here, especially at the end, and the whole song is a refreshing change from bogged down 'serious' lyrics. For me, Bastille Day and Lakeside Park are only average, but the album as a whole is worth adding to your collection. But take a chance on the remastered version, it has to be an improvement!
