3 stars You can tell that this is a young band. The music is good and very well played for all that it is fairly straightforward. There is a hint of Led Zeppelin to this album which is no bad thing but the influences that later made the Feedback album are here too.

Finding My Way, Here Again, In The Mood, and Working Man are all classic Rush tracks. All are favourites of mine but a I particulary love the massive riffery that is Working Man. That is one of the all time great heavy guitar parts. And Here Again is such a laid back track that it just makes life seem so mellow.

This is not really a prog album though but some of the musical seeds are there to see, though at this point they were still awaiting germination with the arrival of Neil Peart. So, this album would have to fall into the good category. Which is still not bad for a debut album.
