    “Working Man” was the breakthrough song played on the radio in Cleveland, not “Before and After”. Still, a good article.

    Really good album overall. Who would’ve thought there would be no album sounding like that again. Parts of fly by night did but that’s about it. Definitely a good debut album I think songs like “before and after” and “here again” are really underrated so is “what you’re doing” and ” finding my way” you can definitely hear the zeppelin influence on those two. Overall a great debut album but their music and lyrics changed after that.

    John rutsey was no neil peart but he was a talented drummer. Obviously neil was deadly on the drums and the lyrics he wrote as well. They couldn’t have picked a better drummer and lyricist. It’s hard to believe caress of steel got panned by critics and didn’t sell to me its a masterpiece. If 2112 wasnt a breakthrough that it was mercury records may have dropped them. I give them credit for doing what they wanted even though they knew that the record company wanted something else. It all worked out in the end and they looked line the geniuses that they were.
