Entre finales de 1994 y mediados de 1995 Alex Lifeson, guitarrista de Rush, aprovechó un descanso de la banda para grabar su disco en solitario. Lo llamó Victor, nombre sacado de un poema de Auden y que Lifeson declama en el disco. A su lado estuvieron Edwin, de I Mother Earth, el loco de Les Claypool, de Primus, o Lisa Dalbello. El trabajo es un tanto irregular, fuerte, directo y con más de un ramalazo guitarrero que se echó en falta en la música de Rush de mediados de los 80, demasiado orientada hacia los sintetizadores. Hay un tema que, desde la primera escucha, me impactó. Start Today. Con Lisa Dalbello a la voz. Una Dalbello asombrosa, potente, enérgica y que recuerda al Geddy Lee de los años setenta.  


Start Today (Victor)



I need you to hold me tightly in your arms
I need you to show me if I might be wrong
I am pink and you are blue
Can I trust my whole life to you?
Just don't take me for some fool
When I need to depend on you
I am not your part time job
What you get is what you are

You can hurt like no one can
You're such a child for such a man
You need strength, you need to take a stand
Just stop looking to me for a helping hand
When you're ready I will be here
I can help you to lose your fear
You better stand up on your feet
If you ever want to feel my heat

Clear your mind of those things gone by
You can't change the past, why even try
You can build upon all you've learned
You can start today


No one said it wouldn't be this hard
When you share, prepare to give a lot
Just remember when you look at me
You are you and I am me
When you're ready I will be here
I can help you to lose your fear
You better stand up on your feet
If you ever want to feel my heat

Clear your mind of those things gone by
You can't change the past why even try
Look ahead to those better days
Make the effort, it always pays
We can build upon all we've learned
We can start today
