Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
2 stars One song, folks, with a cute picture on the sleeve of a bunny on top of a tortoise, perhaps the tortoise and the hare thing going a bit too far, as far as a fable goes. The picture sleeve may be enough for most collectors but with only one song it was not a real priority. The song was of course the heavy rocker from "Counterparts" 'Stick it out'. I prefer 'Animate' personally but this is still a killer song with great Lifeson riffs and odd time signature rhythms.

'Stick It Out' is driven by a hard rock guitar riff, one of Lifeson's most inspirational moments, and very powerful vocals. It is a melodic gem that is well sung and performed by the group, with an unforgettable chorus. It has the the trademark resounding echoing delay guitar sound, and Lee's accomplished high octave treatment of the vocals. He is in fine voice and this has been played live many times through the years and is a fan favourite.

Overall this single is one of the best among the Rush 90s years, especially notable for the odd picture sleeve. If you see that bunny hopped up on top of the tortoise at a second hand record store, than it has to be snapped up, collectors.
