Album of Last Friday

Caress of Steel, by Rush (1975): The things you learn on Wikipedia. I always thought that the lyrics to "I Think I'm Going Bald" were the product of Geddy Lee, as the band at this point was still transitioning into Neal Peart being the dominant lyricist in the band. What else could explain such a crappy tune? Alas, according to Wiki, I'm wrong and the blame lies with Peart, allegedly a homage to Kiss (with whom they toured a lot back then). It's safe to say that Neil has developed quite a bit as a lyricist since then, huh? Apologies to Mr. Weinrib for ever besmirching him with the credit!
