Counterparts (Rush Album)

Counterparts (Rush album)

Counterparts is the fifteenth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1993. It became Rush's highest charting album in the US, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (only behind Pearl Jam's Vs.). Atlantic Records has claimed that the album went Platinum, although the RIAA has it listed as Gold.

The lyrics of Counterparts continue the trends of Roll the Bones with dark and emotional themes being the primary focus. Some songs are "heavy" sounding tracks like "Animate" and "Stick it Out", which topped the Mainstream Rock Tracks for four weeks in late 1993, becoming the band's fifth single to do so. "Leave That Thing Alone" earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Instrumental".
