The Runaway
4 stars Caress of Steel is an amazing album featuring 3 more mainstream tracks and 2 prog epics. This album features excellent riffing by Lerxst, drumming by Peart, and singing by Geddy.

Caress of Steel begins with the 3 more mainstream songs Bastille Day, I Think I'm Going Bald, and Lakeside Park. The album then takes a sudden change of styling to a more progressive song called The Necromancer, featuring complicated parts, yet simple. Then starts Fountain of Lamneth, which is a prog piece that never ceases to amaze me! It starts with an acoustic guitar and Geddy singing and then onto a rock-ier part still using progressive rock drumming and such, until they get to a weird part where Geddy screams random words into the mic with excellent timing by Lerxst and Peart on a very complex time signature.

Caress of Steel is a true progressive album, no matter how muck rock is included. It's recommended to every prog new-comer and Rush fan!

4/5 for the fact that it's Rush, it rocks, and it rocks hard.

The Runaway | 4/5 |
