3 stars I feel it impossible not to regard this as almost a Rush album.

Maybe my musical understanding is pretty limited, but Geddy Lee's voice is so distinct that it is impossible not to bring up Rush in the review. Although both Alex and Neil is sorely missed here. Their replacements are not too bad though. But they are not in the same league. Herein lays the difference between this album and a Rush album. There is more straight rock on this album than on a Rush album. There is more straight rhythms here than in a Rush album. The sound is also slightly different.

The similarities.......... The title track could had been taken straight out of Vapor Trails. The rest of the songs is not thousand miles away from Test For Echo and Snakes & Arrows. The songs are also very good. Working At Perfect is brilliant and a typical Snakes & Arrows song....... ehh, we are still in 2000 and not in 2008. The rest of the songs makes this a very good album. It is obvious that Geddy Lee is extreme talented and excellent on his own. It is a luxury problem for those of us who loves Rush: Should Geddy Lee release another solo album or should he put all his eggs in the Rush basket ? Holy reindeer; that question makes me a basket-case ! Anyway, this is a very good album and a feast for all Rush fans.
