2 stars 2,5 stars really!!!

Rush trying to do their future classic music . Did not really get this one right, as this is sometimes sloppy . This has the markings of a band still learning their trade .

Two tracks hold the proghead's attention: The Necromancer is really dark but leaves me rather cold and Fountain of Lamneth, which is just a little pretentious only because they are trying too hard , too quick and too early. The rest of the tracks are normal early Rush tracks that you will find from their debut up to 2112. Lakeside Park is one of those many Toronto parks where the partying was simply great. Bastille Day was a concert favorite.

My rating must seem really low, but as a early Rush fan, I thought this was fantastic but with age creeping up on me, this album has obviously not aged as well as I have!
