Rush is the debut studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1974.

The album features eight original songs written by the band members, showcasing their hard rock and blues influences. The album was recorded in Toronto in late 1973, with producer David Stock and engineer Terry Brown. The album received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the musicianship and energy of the band, but criticized the songwriting and production. The album sold modestly at first, but gained popularity after the band toured extensively in the US and Canada, opening for acts like Aerosmith, Kiss, and Blue Öyster Cult.

The album was certified gold in Canada in 1975, and platinum in the US in 1995. The album is considered a classic of the early Rush era, and includes some of their most popular songs, such as “Finding My Way”, “Working Man”, and “In the Mood”.

While Rush’s self-titled debut album lacks the refinement and polished production of their later works, it remains a crucial chapter in their musical evolution. The album’s raw energy, youthful spirit, and glimpses of their future virtuosity make it a must-listen for any Rush fan or anyone seeking a taste of hard rock’s golden era
