First up, this album is only covers. That's right, covers, from a band who haven't played someone else work since about 1973, so it's a departure from their previous work that's for sure.
On this, Rush plays such classics as "The Seeker", "Crossroads" and "Heart Full of Soul". As always, bass, drums and guitars are tight. Alex even solos like it is 1976 on this one. But it lacks something... grit. This album, altough very interesting from a musical perspective, has been a small deception, since the band sounds exactly like they did on Vapor Trail. Wall of sound is good on new music, but old stuff like this need fills, drum breaks, etc.
Plus, Geddy's voice has problem keeping up with some stuff, especially on The Seeker: Roger ain't easy to overpower that's for sure!
In conclusion, for the price, get it. But it's no Hemisphere, or even Roll the Bones, wich says a lot.
