3 stars With a lot of great musicians in it, this is by far the best Rush tribute album (in my humble opinion). It has a great quality sound, and cool rearranges of Rush classic songs, with a good selection of essentials songs in Rush' history. All covers are quite more "metallic" sounding, so, it lacks that Rush flair, but this album still has no waste, any Rush fan should listen to it, even once. The highlights in this album are: Natural Science, Closer To The Heart and La Villa Strangiato, this last being the most enjoyable because of Steve Morse incredible guitar work, just mind blowing, redefining La Villa classic riffs. Also, the songs that Billy Sheehan was involved (almost all) have a powerful bass sound (obviously, coming from the expertise of Sheehan).

This is a really good tribute album, though not essential. But if you are a Rush fan (as i am), you should listen to this rendition to one of the greatest prog bands.
