    I was pleasantly surprised by this album. Geddy has a great melodic sense when it comes to making different styles of music.

    A few true gems highlight an album that will otherwise be of interest primarily to Rush fans.

    I was more then impressed with this album. Geddy picked a good cast of musicians to put together a great album. I think it would make anyone want to pickup a guitar,bass or drums..or even vocals..thats my two cents.

  1. Resembles what a new Rush album would've sounded like.
  2. On this excursion into the noodle-prone mind of Mr. Lee. True, all the lyrics are his and his alone, but after all this time, plenty of Peart has rubbed off on him, resulting in much impenetrable mumbo jumbo about the universe and its "secrets" ("The Angels Share") and the workings of the mind...
  3. Since Headache doesn't go for any of Rush's extended instrumental outings or skewed dynamics, the onus is on Lee and Mink's melodies, which are generally strong and taut, building on familiar elements but adding a bit more sheen and smoothly executed changes to the mix.
