2 stars What? A solo album by the great front-man of Rush? This I just have to hear! And so I did...

Although I wasn't expecting another Rush album from the '90s what I basically got was just that. The album's songwriting follows pretty basic patterns and it's mostly entirely aimed at fans of Rush without even trying to break new ground. That's a pity since Geddy Lee is such a talented artist who could have used this solo-opportunity to record something completely different and exciting.

There are a few instances here and there that seem to be going for something new but once the chorus line kicks in it all falls back into the familiar style that most fans would expect from this artist and this is ultimately why this is just a fans only album experience.

My Favourite Headache is not a bad solo debut album but I just can't imagine anybody but fans of Rush picking up this album since there isn't much for anybody else here.

**** star songs: My Favourite Headache (4:44) The Present Tense (3:25) The Angels' Share (4:34) Still (4:29)
