Even the godfathers of prog cut their teeth on heads-down, no-nonsense rock 'n' roll, as they remind us on this eight-song EP, which is something of an homage to their days as a snotty teen garage band. Feedback is entirely given over to covers of songs that date back to the late '60s -- not coincidentally a period that saw the flowering of the power trio and the birth of Rush.

Feedback is entirely given over to covers of songs that date back to the late '60s -- not coincidentally a period that saw the flowering of the power trio and the birth of Rush.

While Rush aren't particularly known for their succinctness, Feedback is chockablock with songs that fly by in a blur, as Alex Lifeson doles out the beer-fueled raga explorations of "Heart Full of Soul" with punchy glee while Geddy Lee abandons his usual high register for an angst-laden croon. The fondness that imbues their takes on radio staples like the Who's "The Seeker" and the Buffalo Springfield chestnut "For What It's Worth" makes up for the familiarity of those tunes and, combined with the overall brevity of the disc, keeps the listener eagerly awaiting another spin.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This is a riot! Rather than put out some windy and dreary box set to celebrate their 30th anniversary, Canada's seminal power prog band and one of big rock's most enduring units turns the tables and lays out hot and heavy covers of eight classics from the annals of rock & roll history. The track list is amazing, and the cool thing is that the arrangements of these nuggets are not all ripped up and mutated, either. "Summertime Blues" may begin as a nod to Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady," but it comes roaring back as an acknowledged homage to the Who's Live at Leeds version. The version of Stephen Stills' "For What It's Worth" begins as a slippery little acoustic tune but quickly turns into a heavy, droning rock orgy. "The Seeker" goes for the jugular in the same way that the Who's did; Geddy's sneer has a little less contempt than Daltrey's but it's just as hungry and desperate. "Heart Full of Soul" is pure psychedelic Yardbirds elegance with a bunch of space and dimension added to redeem the track for the 21st century. The backmasked guitars on "Mr. Soul" and Neil Peart's deliberate mix of thud and snap give the cut a solid footing for Alex Lifeson to unhurriedly coax Lee's vocal along the lyric. The ringing of Lifeson's chords that barely hold this side of overblown feedback is masterful in keeping the original spirit of the song while future-dating its sonics. Rush's read of "Seven and Seven Is" is much faster that Love's original, but its barely-on-the-rails tempo is welcome in lieu of the fact that these guys are all in their fifties and play like they're kids. "Shapes of Things to Come" is fun, and a real attempt to provide nuance to a great song, especially the cross-channel fading in the guitar mix. But on "Crossroads," the other bookend of this EP, Rush give a romper-stomper wailing performance of Cream's arrangement of Robert Johnson's seminal blues tune. Lifeson leaves Eric what's-his-name in the dust. Lee may not be the vocalist that Jack Bruce is but he kicks his ass as a bass player, and his moment of glory in this cut tears the roof off the song. None of these tunes are done with an ounce of camp. What the listener encounters is a Rush that has never ever been heard before: they indulge in the hero-worship and dream roots of the garage band that eventually became Rush, and they simultaneously search for the young garage band whose members never dreamed they'd be playing these tunes 30 years later as Rush. Anyone who thinks that there is no life left in the classics of the genre needs to hear this. That something this wild and freewheeling could only be pulled off by a band with 30 years experience is not only worth noting, but celebrating.

    What a gas!

    These are some of the finest rock and roll songs ever recorded, from that special time in the 60's when real rock came of age. Rush plays each one just fantastic!! Thanks guys - I just got 40 years younger!

    Good day, eh? I tip my touque... . . .

    The Great White North rocks again. This album is fantastic, a total blast. Anyone who grew up on AOR FM radio will love this album - totally refreshing! They cover "The Seeker" so well, dare I say as good, no okay, almost as good, as The Who. I can't turn this record off. Rock on hosers! You make the MacKenzie brothers (Bob and Doug) proud to be Canucks. More Molsons!

    The Roots of Rush

    Geddy, Alex and Neil should be applauded for showing respect to the bands that inspired their group, Rush! Rush is celebrating their 30th anniversary as a group by recording and covering some of rock & roll's legends on the EP entitled, "Feedback." One does not have to be a die hard Rush fan to truly enjoy "Feedback." I still can not believe that Rush has not been voted into Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

    These songs live

    I saw Rush in Bonner Springs, Missouri at the Verizon Amphitheatre and they played a few of the songs off this album live. And they were absolutely AMAZING!!!!! What a way to celebrate their 30th anniversary.

    Rush's 'Pin Ups', 'Rock n Roll', 'Spaghetti Incident?' and 'Run Devil Run'!

    Rush does an amazing job of revisiting songs they all played when starting out in the late 1960's. Considering how much they've grown as musicians and changed since those days, they manage to do convincing (and rocking) covers of "Crossroads", "Summertime Blues" (the Blue Cheer version moreso than the 'Live at Leeds' Who version) and the rest of the covers are pretty good. 'Flashback' is a welcome addition to the genre of 'covers and tributes albums' (BTW, the four albums I referenced in my headline are by David Bowie, John Lennon, Guns n Roses, and Paul McCartney respectively).

    Rush has no limits!!!

    Rush once again proves their versatility. This is a unique blend of blues, psychodelic and good old rock and roll. The high points are "The seeker", with Geddy's incredible vocal performance making this equal to the Who's version. The jam session at the end of "Crossroads" truly demonstrates the artistry of all three musicians. Buffalo Springfield's "For what it's worth" is one of my favorite songs of all time and is done solidly here. Too bad they didn't attempt a Beatles or Stones song because they were definitely up to the task.

    Deja Vu in Progress

    An interesting release from my favorite band. Another thumbs up after 30 years! This band is the staple of Progressive Rock, and they've done it again. Three extremely talented gentlemen. If you’re a Rock or Progressive Rock fan, this cd is definitely worth owning.

    Outstanding - The Summer Soundtrack 2004

    Outstanding! That about sums up this great EP from the Canadian rock trio. Who would have thought that they would do covers of late 60's classics by the Who, Yardbirds, Buffalo Springfield and others? What is most amazing is that in many cases, these versions absolutely blow away the originals. I can't stop playing this thing! From start to finish, there is not a weak link in this collection. The song selection is excellent and for a bunch of guys around 50 they play as if their lives depend on it. That's probably why they've made it through 30 years together and with a live show that is still one of the best in the business. The album closer "Crossroads" is incredible and Alex Lifeson absolutely blows away the version with that Clapton guy! This is serious air guitar. But with Rush, its also great air bass and air drums. Make no mistake, this is the summer soundtrack of 2004, an ode to an earlier, more carefree era. Perfect for the top down, backyard bbqs, at the beach, or simply annoying your neighbors! While other contemporary big name artists with maybe half the talent will probably get more press and sell more albums, this one is a must have and easily the summer's, if not also one of the year's, best. Look no further for the perfect cure for those summertime blues!
