My Favorite Headache
Solo album from the "banshee howl" of Geddy Lee! (Lead singer from Rush, in case you didn't know.) Actually has very little howling ... this is Geddy in "serious-pop" mode, flexing the same brain muscles that helped write melody-heavy rock tracks like "New World Man" and "Distant Early Warning."|
Ben Mink, who plays violin on some Rush albums, co-wrote everything. Geddy lets himself depart from the Rush mode by using heavier, tidal-wave guitar or bass sounds (like the thumping bass attack opening track 1) but the overall sound has the tuneful, almost light sound of post-Moving-Pictures Rush.
The project works well overall, but don't come here looking for a revival of the 2112/Caress of Steel stuff.
Faves: 3 and 10 are nice and melodic; 1 is good for a slighly heavier feel
