Caress Of Steel seems raw and under-produced, but I think that's what gives the album it's appeal. It stars of with "Bastille Day", a rocker with imaginative lyrics. "I Think I'm Going Bald", despite it's quirky lyrics, is still a great song. If anything, on this particular track, it's the music that counts, which rocks and is catchy. "Lakeside Park", which is probably my least favorite on here, is still a great mellow tune. "The Necromancer", is the bands first attempt at a 10+ minute epic. Check out the middle section with furious guitar solos. "The Fountain Of Lamneth", Rush' first 20 minute epic, once again, if not for the lyrics, the music more than makes up for it. It goes from hard rock, to soothing clasical guitar to pop/hard rock to all out hard rock again. It's the most progressive on here.
Overall, a great effort from Rush. This is what I call the start of Rush's heavy progressive rock, and it would get more refined as the later releases indicate.
P.S.- I have not yet heard the newly remastered version, but I'm sure it will not disappoint.

I've been a Rush fan since 1978. Caress of Steel was my gateway album. The narration in the Necromancer along with the straight out power of the song blew me away. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Chuck Byers
