This is a very rock and blues influenced debut by Rush but the tightness of the band can be heard and also a hint of the inventiveness which was yet to fully manifest itself.

Rush formed in Toronto in 1968 but it wasn't until 1974 that the band released their self titled debut. This record, however, focuses less on the progressive aspect of things like the use of synthesizers, Ayn Rand inspired lyrics, epic song lengths and focuses on just hard rock with simple lyrics about things like women and a hard day's work. This is the only Rush Record to feature John Rutsy on drums, instead of the amazing Neil Peart. Peart made his debut on the follow up record to this, Fly By Night in 1975. Even without the great drumming of Neil, John Rutsy still manages to give a solid performance, though it isn't the same. Neil, who also wrote the majority of the lyrics after this album, is also a reason the lyrics are different as oppose to later Rush albums. Rush sounds very similar to Led Zeppelin on this record more than any other album of theirs by far, with the bluesy riffs and solos, and even Geddy Lee's voice sounds similar to Plant's at times. Alex Lifeson also gives a outstanding performance on guitar on this record, as usual.
