Definitely on the lower tier of RUSH albums. Yet, condsidering the calibur of RUSH albums, it seems this still passes off as a almost a good album. Its very hard rock, and very reminicent of Led Zeppelin, which is exactly what they were trying to imitate after all. Even though it doesn't sound very 'RUSH' and sounds more like something else its still a fun album. Some classic RUSH songs here. Anthem and By-Tor & the Snow Dog being the main ones.

I recommend it to a RUSH fan if they want to know about the roots of their favorite band and as well anyone who likes the hard rock side of RUSH and enjoyed the 2112 album. Otherwise, only By-Tor really saves this album from being collectors only. Basically it gets a 2 and a half because it's between what I normally rate a 2 and a 3... sorry, i guess that wasn't a very good explaination. Either way, if your a Rush fan get it, if your not, skip it and look elsewhere.
