2 stars Back in time...

Mostly fuel for the fire, the Feedback EP was released mostly as a reason to hit the road on their R30 tour. The EP reflects on a day when the Toronto boys were young and learning their instruments back before they were considered masters. The track listing is interesting, as the boys decided to use the lesser known (these days, anyway) material that they were influenced by. There's no doubt that this EP would have more interest in it if Geddy had decided to put his spin on, say Roundabout, being the admitted YesFan that he is. While Rush fans will definately enjoy this outing, it's not really for the average prog-head.

The performances are good, if short, but Rush never disappoints in musicianship. Standouts include the excellent covers of FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH and SHAPES OF THINGS. No low points here, but no really great prog to speak of either. So in the end this EP gets 2 stars for appealing to only the fans. Anyone looking to get into Rush best no start here, and anyone looking to find classic Rush after 1982 should just rewind to Counterparts or skip on over to Snakes & Arrows.
