The Fountain Of Lamneth
Label: Island Mercury
From the punk riff that opens up "Bastille Day" to the multiple-part super suites that close things out, Caress of Steel is nothing less than essential listening for Rush fans. Anyone who isn't one obviously hasn't heard Lifeson rip the universe in half eight minutes into "The Necromancer." Hell, the song is called "The Necromancer"! What more do you want?
