Rush's often underrated debut. While it lacks the presence of Neil Peart, it is nevertheless a fine recording which shows the band in their formative years. Lifeson's guitar work dominates this record, something that we definitely do not see in Rush's later work. A must listen for any Rush fan.
This album is criminally underrated for multiple reasons. While it can never be as epic and memorable as "2112" and "Hemispheres", it contains solid tracks that are very easy to listen to and incredibly enjoyable. The biggest highlight is "Working Man", with Lifeson's incredible guitar solo. Neil Peart's presence would be so good for the album, but Rush's debut album is still very good. A must-listen.
A more than solid dose of hard rock from Rush that didnt even hint at what was to come because they changed so much. Still a great glam rock album from a band that would later do much better. Geddy's voice on here is absoluitely ridiculously good. Rulez
It has Hard Rock Roots, (yeah, certainly Zeppelin, Purple, Cactus etc.) but It sounds good with many guitar solos that shows Alex's power and ability, not too Prog but "Working Man" is a great 'overture' to their future with "Fly By Night".
