Caress of Steel is the third studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1975. The album showcases the band's continued evolution to hard progressive rock as opposed to the blues-based hard rock style of the band's first album. Although Rush's previous album Fly by Night dabbled in longer conceptual pieces such as "By-Tor & the Snow Dog", such works were the central focus of Caress of Steel.

Caress of Steel is the third studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on September 24, 1975 by Mercury Records in the United States, Anthem Records in Canada, and Atlantic Records in Japan. Its total length is 45:00. The band's lineup included vocalist and bassist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer Neil Peart. Rush's previous release showed a move to a more progressive rock sound. Continuing that trend, Caress of Steel had two long epic conceptual pieces that made up about 33 minutes of the album
Rush's Caress of Steel - The Polished Steel That Gleams. Pros: Epic adventures that begin the definition of early Rush. The Bottom Line: The definitive Rush album. It's ironic to think that the album that was once considered the "end" of Rush is now so overwhelmingly accepted as one of their finest and most polished pieces of work. But that was the case with Caress of Steel
