*** Rush -- Counterparts

This 1993 release is pretty typical of late Rush. A couple of songs that one might know from play on AOR stations, the rest being a mush of tracks which, while typical Rush -- tight playing, creative lyric, etc. -- aren't anything to go out and buy the CD specifically for. I don't remember the last Rush CD that really grabbed me, but it was probably Moving Pictures. The obvious radio track, "Animate", is really good, but I might hold out for a "greatest hits" release to pick up that and the other 5-7 great songs of the last 10 years. I bought this and several other late Rush CDs to fill out the requirements of some record club I wanted to get out of (progressive is tough to come by in said clubs).
