All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
By 1993, alternative rock had arrived in a big way, and surprisingly, Canadian veterans Rush were game, releasing their most honest and organic rock & roll record in over a decade with Counterparts.

Pure hard rock resurfaces on "Cold Fire," but it is the largely acoustic "Nobody's Hero" which provides the album's most gripping moment with an impassioned plea for HIV consciousness and understanding.

    Almost an hour of Rush

    The sound quality on this record is excellent. So are the songs. Rush returned with the best material they had written since "Moving Pictures" in 1981. And that´s more than a decade! The real highlight is the second track "Stick it out", with its dramatic riff. A very nice instrumental track is included as well. Highly recommended.
