Happy 20th anniversary Counterparts!
UPDATE - 10/22@1:49PM: Here's a nice little write-up on the albums from Ultimate Classic Rock (thanks ou812112).
Today is the 20th anniversary of the release of Rush's 15th studio album, Counterparts. Counterparts along with last year's Clockwork Angels are Rush's 2 best charting albums in the US, both reaching as high as #2 on the Billboard album charts. The album was recorded between April and June of 1993 at Le Studio in Morin Heights, Quebec and McClear Place in Toronto. It was produced by Peter Collins and was certified Gold on December 7, 1993; it has yet to reach Platinum status. The album's first single Stick It Out (watch video) reached as high as #1 on the mainstream rock charts, with Nobody's Hero (watch video) and Cold Fire both reaching #3. Audio Fidelity released an SACD version of Counterparts earlier this year. Happy 20th anniversary!
