Time and Motion: Background
The heavy guitar work on “Time and Motion” and other pieces on Test for Echo has been likened to the guitar work of alternative rock bands popular at the time.
“Geddy, always on to keep an ear to the new music, cited in the press an admiration for Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins. Indeed, tracks like ‘Time and Motion’ are wall-to-wall malevolent guitars.”—Martin Popoff, Contents Under Pressure
The ‘Between Sun and Moon’ [from Counterparts] of Test for Echo, this song recalls the mystic rhythms (“the mighty ocean dances with the moon”) and also ‘Chain Lightning.'”—Robert Telleria, Merely Players
