3 stars I got this compilation album as a pick-up gift from a friend. I have not been in top form lately and I needed a boost, she thought. Prog rock = Rush or Queen in her view. Hence this album and hence this review.

It pains me to say this, but I am really, really enjoying this compilation album. Yes, it is a rip off and as necessary as...... well, there is no need for it whatsoever. Anyone could put this album together on their own, using a playlist program. Windows Media Player, for example. On a planet with limited resources and with this global warming looming over our heads, this compilation album is a very bad idea.

When that is said, the songs here are terrific. Really terrific. And the price is pretty low. I guess it is sold for around five pounds or ten US dollars. I cannot fault Rush for this. This compilation album is actually the perfect intro to Rush for all the newbies out there. OK, 2112 is not included here. But By-Tor has been included. None of the post Presto songs are included too due to copyright issues. But it is still a good compilation album which off course is still a total waste of resources and money. The songs are worth a four star. The idea is at best worth a two star. I cannot say more than that.
