EPs and CD-singles from Rush are also welcome to be added, as
long as they are at least 4 songs in length.

|Rush was still finding themselves with this release. It barely resembles the Rush that would later unfold, and the songwriting mechanism was not yet in place. The foetus of the Rush we know and love, still in the warm belly of Led Zeppelin-influenced, 70s classic rock.

|Hey Koogles I'm telling you! There's a little bit of this on Vapor Trails...gotta listen for it...it's there hiding behind Alex's "Look at me - I'm 50 and can still jam" style. If this had Neil on drums it might be even closer.

|Sounds more AC/DC than Rush later prog. works, but if you are depressed and want some thing that will get your legs moving , get this one !

|This is a killer release, easily their heaviest effort. This was mind-blowing stuff for 1974 as there were precious few bands putting out music like this 30 years ago! Very little if any of the progressive style that would dominate their material in later years on this one, but certainly nothing resembling the 3 chord antics of AC/DC here! This is an all-time classic in my book.

|Interesting to think what path Rush's career might have taken, but they morphed into something more complex and wonderful, into (in my humble opinion) THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME! But I have always enjoyed this album. "Before & After" may be my favourite song off this one, I've never heard a live version of this. I plan on seeing them in Toronto in August, maybe I'll make a banner. No, maybe not.

|They sounded like the times that surrounded them on this one. Nice material here, ahead of their time as they will again be, shortly after this.

|What a great rock and roll album, with hints of progressiveness that they would soon become.

|I wouldn't call this an straight Prog Rock album but a Hard Rock one instead..."Need Some Love" is my fave followed closely by "Finding My Way","What You're Doing" & "In the Mood"...this was the beginning of a band that after the years have become one of the greatest.77/100
