2 stars Alex Lifeson is one of my alltime favorite musicians. That's why it pains me to review this album. Voluntary review it, I hasten to add.

The DNA profile of this project/band is obvious. It is the guitar sound and much of the general sound of Rush. Alex is 1/3 and an important part of Rush's soundscape. That is proven beyond doubt on this album. This album is the sound of Rush with some added heavyness and experimentations. From funk and jazz kitsch to more grunge.

The result is not particular good. This album has some good songs (for example Promise). But it also have some experimentations for the sake of experimentations. This album kicks everywhere and is more an exploration of new territories than an album of songs. It is actually a typical debut album where a man who has been a part of a band for decades suddenly find himself alone and pretty lost. Listen to the first Robert Plant solo album and you get my picture. Alex Lifeson's first venture outside Rush follows excactly the same pattern. I should had been a head-shrink and put these two guys in a white room before they ventured anywhere near a recording studio....... Hahaha !!!! Anyway, the Victor album nosedives into a sea of experimentations and that is all I get out of this album. It is not my cup of tea, I am afraid. My favorite drink is Rush.

2.85 stars
