I've played this album once...on the day it was released, and haven't touched it since. I has about an inch thick layer of dust on it on my shelf. While the music was good, it sounded just like Rush, and that disappointed me. I was really hoping that Geddy would put out somthing that was totally his own (like Alex did).
Don't tell me about rock and roll I'm out there in the clubs and on the streets and I'm living it! I am rock and roll!

i find that this album sounds nothing at all like rush, the vocal phrasing are very different, there is a completely different guitar aspect and the bass is also fairly different its a little less driven than it has been.

Well, I haven't heard MFH yet, but Victor was sublime. It had wonderful lyrics (Including W.H. Auden's "Victor"), fantastic guitar parts (Including a collaberation with his son, Adrian), and numerous surprises (Including a cameo by Primus' Les Claypool). I'm looking foreward to hearing MFH, though.

A pattern so grand and complex
Time after time, we loose sight of the way
Our causes can't see their effects

As much as I liked MFH I think that Victor is a much much better album..

I finally downloaded this to my MP3 player and gave it a listen. Geddy without Neil and Alex is like kissing without lips. Its OK but somehow it is just not the same. :?
