Reviewed by MJBrady on 04 Jul 2002

This is one of the many Magna Carta tributes and it'a very good one. With a very impressive list of contributors, the musicians stay fairly true to the musics form throughout the cd, and some great performances are t be heard, particularly by drummers Mike Portnoy, Sean Reinert, & Deen Castronovo, other notable performances are by the following:Steve Morse - guitar, Billy Sheehan, Stu Hamm, Sean Malone - basses, John Petrucci, Michael Romeo, Marcel Coenen - guitars, as well as many others to a lesser degree. Reviewing a tibute cd is not an easy task, but simply an opportunity to say "is it good or bad?" In the case of Working Man, this is a very good one, and should appeal to fans of Rush as well as fans of the artists that contributed to this project.
