About the Album

What do you do when you've sold millions of records, played sold out shows all around the world and pretty much done everything creatively you've wanted to do over a thirty year period? If you're the members of Canadian rock band Rush, you comb through your old record collections, pick out some of the songs that first inspired you and re-cut them.

Feedback, the band's new eight song EP of covers, lives up to its name -- there is feedback a plenty throughout. The trio take classic rock numbers like "Summer Time Blues" and "Shapes Of Things" and turn them into noisy jams. If you think you've heard all these songs before, you're right, but you haven't heard them quite like this. "Summer Time Blues" is hardly recognizable save for the unmistakable lyrics. Geddy Lee, Neil Peart and Alex Lifeson turn on the fuzz boxes, crank the amps up to ten and pound out what is best described as a totally original version of the summer anthem.

The band lifts two songs from the catalog of Buffalo Springfield, including the Neil Young penned "Mr. Soul" and Stephen Stills' "For What It's Worth." "Mr. Soul," in the hands of Lee, Peart and Lifeson, works surprisingly well. The trio does a distorted imitation of Young's somewhat cacophonous work with Crazy Horse, which is great. You almost swear they brought Crazy Horse in for the session. "For What It's Worth" shows a different side of the band. We get a glimpse of what Rush could have sounded like had they gone in a more folk-rock direction instead of the prog-rock route they chose.

The "King of the Delta Blues" Robert Johnson wouldn't even recognize his famous composition, "Crossroads." Rush injects the track with equal parts Cream, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. The song will probably have blues purists screaming bloody murder, but the trio's fans will get lost in the monster riffage that rumbles from the speakers. The Who's teeth-rattling "The Seeker" is a perfect fit for Rush. The band thunders through the track like a pit bull at a poodle convention. The Yardbirds' "Heart Full Of Soul" and Love's silly "Seven And Seven Is" round out this short but inspired collection.

Feedback is a serious bonus for Rush fans used to lengthy breaks between releases. After thirty years assaulting eardrums, the trio show no signs of slowing down.
