2 stars Rush haven't had many low points, but I'd say this is near the bottom of the list of their albums in terms of quality.

Two tracks stand out as being good: Working Man and Finding My Way are two Rush classics. However, the other tracks are rather generic blues-rock numbers in the vein of Led Zeppelin. Geddy's vocal style hasn't developed its uniqueness yet: it's virtually all Robert Plant-esque screeching. The lyrics are largely cheesy and bland (Oo-ooh, I need some love is hardly an original line). Otherwise, the band plays well, particularly on the aforementioend Working Man and Finding My Way, but they haven't found the genre they work best in yet.

The tracks aren't BAD, but hard rock has been done much better by numerous other classic bands from this era. If you own some Led Zeppelin, there is little reason to buy this album. If you don't own any Led Zeppelin... then go get some Led Zeppelin instead of this.

Una Laguna | 2/5 |
