Review: Rush – Stick It Out (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Rush – Stick It Out.

This track was released in 1993 on the album Counterparts.

The track starts off with a guitar riff. Some slight feedback is added. A high hat comes in along with the vocals. The vocals take the track into the first verse.

After a brief drop, the vocals take the track into the main chorus. Backup vocals also join in this part of the track.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. After that, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. The vocals extend the main chorus.

The lead guitars fade out and the vocals take the track into the next verse. The guitars that are left are more acoustic. An instrumental section then follows which is largely the instrumentation used to back the main chorus.

After that, the vocals then take the track into a short verse. From there, the vocals then take the track into the next main chorus. The vocals extend the main chorus again. After that, the guitars lead the track out quickly.

I do sense a lot of average going on here. The vocals are passable, but nothing huge. The guitars are passable, but nothing huge. While I do appreciate where the lyrics are trying to take this track, the lyrics only carry the track so far in this case.

Overall, this is one of those tracks where I find myself ready to enjoy a track and wondering where the really good part is. The vocals and guitar work is pretty average. The lyrics at least try to make something of themselves in this track. Considering the start of the track, I find myself a bit disappointed with this one. A pretty average track.

Score
6/10
