3 stars I must confess that I knew very little about Rush before I listened to this album (as well as other random tracks). My first impression is that this music seems to go in a straight line from the Who and AC/DC with dashes of King Crimson thrown in. The Who part of the sound isn't as powerful as it should be, partly caused I think, by the bass following the lead guitar a bit too closely much of the time. I find the vocals rather histrionic (which is where the AC/DC connection probably stems from). The writing is rather basic, but there is often good invention in intros and conjoining passages. That for me, is where the best of Rush lies in what I've heard so far.

It all seems rather perfunctory, but certainly not a lot wrong with the playing, just a lack of real solid focus. For fans sold on the idea only.
