    With 17 mostly terrific songs (three sung in Italian), only one breaking the four-minute mark, the collection has the jittery intensity of a lion pacing before feeding time. ... Perhaps we could have done without the closing power ballad “The Loneliest,” but that’s the only misstep on an album that should thrust this band into worldwide superstar status.

    This is M?neskin’s big strength. The songs on RUSH! may not be particularly original, reading heavily from a well-thumbed big-riffs-and-god-times playbook, but they write a very good one, and play them with an energy that frequently boils over with exuberance.

    With Rush!, M?neskin make good on their Eurovision rock promise, delivering an album that's campy, inspired, and thrilling all at the same time.

    The self-assured swagger that enlivens the 17-track ush! emanates from the focuses attack of the band members, whose playing thrums with attitude. [Mar 2023, p.32]

    Thanks to co-producer Max Martin, who contributed to some of these tracks and knows his way around a hook, their version of rock is an aural food processor of stadium chants, processed-sounding beats, and wind-tunnel blare. Sometimes, an undeniable ear-worm emerges. ... It’s hard to tell how seriously M?neskin take any of this silliness. Certainly, being over the top suits them best.

    Pop uber-producer Max Martin is somewhat inevitably on hand to make sure the album gleams even harder than this sharp, lurid foursome do on their own. Unfortunately, Rush! is also a record that dashes about trying to tick all the boxes, with M?neskin’s English-language songs far outnumbering the Italian ones.

    A miserable buffet of rock ‘n’ roll cliches, from saccharine ballads to off-color glam to bland MTV rock. It’s essentially homeopathic rock muzak.

It has less songs in Italian, but they done this because they're noticed that more people from UK and Europe started listening to them + they just wanted to try something new, even if you don't like it.

While there are the less appealing to my taste, there are some absolute bangers, like Gasoline, If Not For You and Timezone. It’s so good to see them getting a bit experimental with their styles. The only thing I missed was more tracks in Italian. Expand

Rock has been buried, and perhaps with a less mainstream project to grab acclaim from everyone is more strategy than artistic philosophy. The forefathers of rock know it is mediocre, and you can hear it in the references. Young people are now used to hearing about freedom over self-expression and self-determination and empowerment. Beyoncé, Monaé, Lamar, SZA, Taylor Swift have now replaced that "sex, drugs, and rock & roll," and of the young 30-somethings have nothing else to say? The rock revolution had already talked about these things, isn't it time to revolutionize more of them? Mediocre lyrics and sounds already heard and proposed, after two years of success you can raise the bar. Expand

Certainly great musicians, the bassist knows what he's doing, but the desire to hymn "sex, drugs and rock & roll" is a bit out of fashion. There are already rappers who hymn these themes, perhaps the political and social weight of rock is missing, toward young people who think it's new, when rock died at least 30 years ago. In an age when uan 40-year-old Beyoncé revolutionizes her musical identity with each project, spreading messages of self-help, freedom of expression, and equality, this very young Italian band would have much more to say, but instead invests in basic mainstream culture with a mediocre recording project.
