3 stars Considering how monstrous a player Geddy is, it is surprising to hear that his only solo album features very little of his dynamic bass playing. "MFH" is modest and soulful release, with songs I think are earnest reflections of Geddy's personality and feelings, as well as his own contributions to Rush.

For those Rush fans who haven't heard this, be prepared-- it is not Rush; the distinctness of Alex and Neil's sound become apparent the moment the title track opens. In general, the songs show off little virtuosity and instead focus on craftsmanship and lyrics, with many containing some powerful messages and moving passages which Rush fans will be right at home with. The songs are quite a bit more mellow as well.

While the backing band players are no slouches, there are few instrumental moments to get excited about-- even from Geddy himself. However, fans of his singing will in no way be disappointed-- Geddy delivers what may be his finest vocals yet.

"MFH" deserves to be checked out by anyone who likes Rush, who will certainly find many of the songs meaningful and enjoyable.
