Audio Fidelity have delayed the release of the SACD (Super Audio CD) version of RUSH's Counterparts album until February 19th. According to a press release, the limited edition of this 1993 album was the 15th studio album by Rush and highest charting album in the US, peaking at #2 on the Billboard 200 (only behind PEARL JAM's Vs.). The lyrics of Counterparts continue the trend 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.
Counterparts features the following tracklisting:
'Stick It Out'
'Cut To The Chase'
'Between Sun & Moon'
'The Speed Of Love'
'Leave That Thing Alone' (instrumental)
