4 stars This one is a very good compilation album from Rush. It is perfect for people who wants to listen to Rush for the first time, since it spans their entire career up to that point. It features songs from every album of Rush in the 1974-1991 period, including the live releases (16 albums in total). The songs are arranged chronologically, so you can sense their music evolution. They have chosen two songs per album, except for the live ones, and the recently released presto, wich features only one song each. And from 2112 there is an abridged version of the 2112 suit. Note that this are not the remastered versions of the songs (since the rush remasters were not done yet), but the sound is very good. Keep in mind that a remaster not always sounds better than thenoriginal realese. To complement this compilation I would add a few more songs from albums released after 1991: "animate" and "leave that thing alone" from COUNTERPARTS (1993) and "test for echoes" and "resist" from TEST FOR ECHOES (1996). That would be a perfect collection indeed. [R1]
