4 stars 4,5 really !!! After the first release from 1974, RUSH starts to refine your sound and open their ascending path in direction to (in my humble opinion) the more sophisticated heavy-prog style reached for a band ( specially a trio ). I know which one circumstance contributes definitively to this... RUSH takes great luck in "Drummers Wheels of Fortune" ... Neil Peart brings to band's sound not only a new colored, beside this, more interesting lyrics. But, when I hear the first RUSH album I immediately recognise in Geedy and Alex the capacity to create great melodies , powerful riffs and intricate bass/guitar dialogs. In Fly by Night again you can hear this characteristic in the track 4 ". By-Tor And The Snow Dog" and the 4 parts that compounds the music (where Lee and Lifeson "detonating" . their instruments in Part III "Of The Battle" . The track 3 "Beneath, Between And Behind" is other moment capable of "shake the mind" with their solo/riff/scale where the trio "sparks" between the guitar / bass and drums melody . The track 1 "Anthem" with a overture where Peart assume the "game" and "play your cards", culminates with one of more full of emotion guitar solo that I heard in my life. In fact this is the first great album from RUSH. My rate is 4 stars !!!
