  • Their best album !
  • love the optimistic vibe on this album. underrated
  • Other than time and motion this is a really really enjoyable, unpretentious rock album, its not rush at their most daring and some of the lyrics are hideous but the feel of the music wins me over a hundred fold
  • my first Rush album and still their most powerful one that I've listened many and many times to
  • 4 good songs and a bunch of rubbish
  • Muzykos, I'm a huge Tool fan, but I'm just now listening to Rush's whole library and I was amazed when I heard the similarities between Test for Echo and Lateralus, too. I was surprised to see only 6 years between them.
  • Dog Years is just wow
  • love this one, by far their best work since power windows (up until this point) and anyone that disagrees can get bent
  • For me the worst Rush album on the 90s, still kick ass.
  • By far the worst Rush release, so many utterly lame tracks and one god awful one in Dog Years. All that said it has one moment of complete clarity and brilliance which is the track Driven which is among my favorite 10 Rush songs ever.
