    this album gets too much hate; there's nothing wrong with some high quality zeppelin worship you can rock out to. can you imagine rush having gone down the same road as thin lizzy or judas priest? i mean I guess they would have gone some degree of prog without neil peart anyway given their tastes but still

    I thought that some of the more straightforward songs are a bit textbook and somewhat uninteresting. "Finding My Way" and "What You're Doing" are surprisingly good songs and "Working Man" is a classic--I must admit, I bought that album for that one song. John Rutsey is a decent drummer, but he is far from Neil Peart. A good addition for die-hard Rush fans, but nothing too special. If you are into old hard rock, you may really like this, but I would not recommend anyone to begin their Rush experience with this album.

    The album cover art reminds me of a Jack Kirby-drawn explosion panel. Excellent!
