No Rush album is unlistenable under every possible circumstance which is a victory for a band that has as many albums as Rushbut Test for Echo has nothing that makes the band great.
No experimentation, no exceptional guitar solos, and even the ever-lively rhythm section seems depressed. Driven opens with one of classic rock's most promising intros, but quickly slips into an indifferent mush, while "Resist" tries in vain to recapture the magic of ballads such as Losing It and The Pass in a halfhearted, albeit listenable, attempt at shallow emotion.
I suppose I should go through the album, track-by-track. Neal Peart plays a head-banging double bass groove, and Geddy Lee keeps up pretty well on bass, but the Resist - Rush - Test For Echo is just boring.
Lifeson evidently has nothing more to offer than a power chord progression, a statement which is obviously false, but teeters on truthfulness with respect to this particular album.
Next, the aforementioned Driven. After starting out with a John Petrucci-style metalcore riff Resist - Rush - Test For Echo open, the song fades away slowly and painfully.
This is my way of saying that the album has no more to give, just two songs in. Every song sounds like it was written in a diminished minor scale. Every song sounds like there was too much gain used when the album was mastered. Every song is poorly written Dog Yearsthe lyrics of which I shall not bother to copy and paste here, I Will See The Morning - Uncle Black - Earthling bad decision making in the songwriting processand every song sounds the exact same.
Test for Echo Resist - Rush - Test For Echo not one of those albums. In fact, there have been times at which I have gone out of my way Call Of The Wily - Various - Esopus #8: Spam listen to the title cut, or even Resist.
Test for Echo is an enjoyable, imperfect album that most Rush fans will never really touch. Nonetheless, this album is surely a listenable one, even though it is the weakest of the 90s, with Counterparts and Roll the Bones surpassing it.
He eschews both the early Rush blues and the 80s Rush jazz for alternative rock. And he riffs! Thank God for the riffs! One of the best changes to the albums of the 90s are the increased presence of the guitar, and I Resist - Rush - Test For Echo stress enough that Alex Lifeson begins to come back to life on this album. But I rarely heard something that blew my mind like in earlier Rush albums or in Clockwork Angels. This just proves that Rush was re-synchronizing itself. Like I said, there are moments where Neil Peart would deliver an amazing performance that busts your gut, but those times are few and far-between.
This was about when Geddy was really losing the ability to sing as high-pitched as he used to. The bass is definitely an upside to this album, however.
Geddy always delivers on the bass, whatever phase of Rush you look at. And that is exactly the same here. He runs up and down and all over the bass with magical fingers that can produce in riff imaginable on the bass. One of the pluses for Resist - Rush - Test For Echo album is the lyrics. Like most Rush albums, the lyrics can be downright awful sometimes, however. But, damn, could they not find another way to put that?
Perhaps that says more about my maturity than their lyricism. Regardless, this album criticizes TV culture, laments the tortured young eternal-activist, and dealing with heavy emotional burdens. Rush is human, after all, even though I often see them as Gods. One of the things Resist - Rush - Test For Echo I constantly heard about this album was that the songs are not very memorable or that they blend together.
If this album had more life and variety, it would've been truly great, and it just falls short of being just that, in my opinion.
