Following John Rutsey's departure from the the band after only one album, Neil Peart was recruited to complete the now legendary power trio.

The Good: Whilst the debut is essentially just an exercise in hard rock, Fly By Night shows a definite move towards the style which would become synonymous with their "classic era". This is demonstrated through the structure and instrumental prowess of tracks such as Anthem and By-Tor and the Snow Dog, both of which are fantastic compositions and have remained concert staples throughout the years. The album also has its fair share of standard rockers, but they're of a higher quality than their previous release and far more interesting.

The Bad: Rivendull.

The Verdict: Underrated member of the Rush back catalogue.
