  2. Jan 08,  · referencing Caress Of Steel, CD, Album, RE, RM, PMD, The backside of the art on my copy is printed in very low res. Especially noticeable when trying to read the copyright blob on the back. Everything except the barcode is very blurry compared to other Anthem/Mercury Rush /5(K).
  3. Although the band initially had high hopes for Caress of Steel, it was considered a disappointment by the record company. The album eventually became known as one of Rush’s most obscure and overlooked recordings. Die hard fans feel the record is underrated. Caress of Steel featured long pieces broken up into various sections and long solo passages. It is often considered notable for the inclusion of the band’s first two epic .

Both of these epics have shining moments but never fully form into something great, unlike Rush’s later epics.
  7. Caress of Steel is the album that almost killed Rush. Upon its release it was lambasted by critics, ignored by most fans and drew the ire of record executives. There are some legitimate reasons why Caress of Steel received such a negative response. It is musically inconsistent, has an awkward flow and lacks an overarching vision.
