5 stars Rush is back! After steadily improving this new rock sound, starting with Test For Echo, then to Vapor Trails, then Snakes & Arrows, and now the upcoming Clockwork Angels, Rush has perfected it. This EP shows two excellent songs which bring great hope for the new album.

1. Caravan (9/10) An exciting rock song thats full of energy and life. The main guitar riff is very catchy, Pearts drumming is all over the place and just so good, and Geddy's voice is actually quite good considering his age. It sounds like an improved Snakes & Arrows song due to the hard rocking guitar, but it does slow down for the chorus, "I can't stop thinking babe..." which is very soothing and enjoyable. At the end there is a long instrumental section which just shows the sheer excellence of Rush. All in all a wonderful song, the best of the two on this EP.

2. BU2B (9/10) You thought the great music was over? Think again! Another exciting track that is a fitting follow up to Caravan. The song starts off with more hard guitars and drums (no problem there) and more excellent singing from Geddy. Much like in Caravan, BU2B slows up at times (which is enjoyable) but then takes off again with the awesome rock. While not as good as Caravan (by comparison), still a top 5 Rush song from the hard rock era (Echo-Clockwork).

Overall: 18/20, 9/10, 4.5/5

An exciting look into the future of Rush! A must have for fans of not only the band but of good music.
