3 stars First and only solo album of this legendary musician Geddy Lee - released in 2000 and named My Favourite Headache. From the start I'll say that is impossible to make diffrence between him and Rush, when you say Geddy Lee you say Rush and vice versa. Musicaly this album is quite similar with Rush, it was almost impossible after 4 decades to come with a diffrent sound and manner of composing as your mother band. This album alternates from good moments to mediocre ones aswell. I mean the opning track , the title track is excellent showing that he is the master of the bass, definatly the highlight from here, another worthy one is The Present Tensevery much sounding like pieces from Test for echo, in fact almost all pieces ounds like left overs from that album or even from Counterparts aswell. Very similar with Rush, in some parts the sound and overall atmosphere has an indie almost alternative flavour, maybe because on the drums is Matt Cameron from Soundgarden and Peal Jam fame. So all in all decent but far from being great or something really strong, I like the album and giving fair credit because Geddy Lee is one hell of a musician, other wise I don't know some parts sounding really mediocre. 3 stars.
