Album Review

Aside from the 1998 live set Different Stages, not much was heard from Rush after their tour wrapped up in support of their last studio album two years prior, Test for Echo. But in 2000, Rush fans starving for some new material got their wish when bassist/singer Geddy Lee issued his first-ever solo album, My Favorite Headache. Lee is joined by ex-Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron (who sounds almost identical to Rush drummer Neal Peart) and ex-FM guitarist/violinist Ben Mink, and both help Lee craft a record that resembles what a new Rush album would've sounded like. The album-opening title track is unquestionably the best cut here — a cacophonic Primus-ish hard rock section switches with a laid-back, symphonic piece — while such rockers as "The Present Tense," "Working at Perfekt," "Home of the Strange," and the ballad "Slipping" could've easily fit on such '90s Rush albums as Counterparts and Test for Echo. My Favorite Headache will help hold over longtime fans of the Canadian prog trio.

great work

once again geddys writing + music is at a high standard he+rush dont let down the fans great work + neils drums (what can you say ) 5 stars lovegun 63

A good album!

Although I only give it 3 stars it is a must for every Rush fan. I like it! Probably should get a higher rating by many others. Do yerself a favour!!

An interesting album - for all the right reasons.

An album that is very professional (what else could we expect from Mr Lee) and also very listenable. It sounds like Rush, yet it doesn't.

'Window to the World' with its beautiful minor chord is the best track here. Also 'Working at Perfekt' and 'Slipping' are great.

An interesting album, though it does fall away a little in the second half. All the same, a fine effort from the bass and voice of arguably one of the best bands of all time.

Few hard rock bassists have been as influential as Rush's Geddy Lee. Born Gary Weinrib on July 29, 1953, in Toronto, his parents migrated from Europe to Canada and got his nickname "Geddy" from when his mother would try to pronounce "Gary" in her accent. Taking up bass as a teenager and influenced by the likes of the Who's John Entwistle, Cream's Jack Bruce, and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, Lee hooked up with guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer John Rutsey to form the hard rocking trio Rush (Lee...
