  • Love Rush 90s, one of my favs releases
  • full of energy
  • I think stick it out and cut to the chase are really not that good but apart from those two I really enjoy this album WEIRD
  • I'm finding this one to be a real grower
  • and I really like double agent
  • my vote for the most unique rush album ever ever ever
  • Progressive grunge needs to be more of a thing!
  • much better than the last 3, but personally I prefer test for echo
  • A danger that i'm prepared to face, cut to the chase! Fuckin great album.

They actually sounded like a proper 'power' trio again, thanks in no small part to the beefy production. In retrospect it's maybe a bit uneven but the sheer power and commitment shine through. This and Angels is the best Rush of the post Signals era.
