    I have recently got into my Rush kick. I know the Rush fans out there have their favorite albums. Here are mine (BTW: These change in order all the time)


    1. Counterparts- I dont know what it is about this CD but it just plain rules!
    2. 2112- Any questions?
    3. Moving Pictures- Any more questions?

    Can't stand much of what they've done since Counterparts....

    Whew, one of my all-time faves. Can't rate albums 1,2 etc., but I have my recurring faves:

    Top-Tier albums, IMO:

    Moving Pictures, Signals, Permanent Waves, 2112, Counterparts, Hemispheres, Power Windows, Hold Your Fire, P/G


    Most of their recent output has been good...but not brilliant. I don't hate the most recent CDs (although I dislike the too-punchy production on Vapor Trails a lot, as did most fans).

    There are a few songs I'd loooooove to see again live: "Territories," "Second Nature," "The Camera Eye," etc.

But if I had to list my all time faves-1-2112, 2-A Farewell To Kings, 3-Hemispheres, 4-Permanent Waves, 5-Moving Pictures, 6-Signals, 7-Grace Under Pressure, and I've got to put the two live albums I love the most as well! 8-All The World's A Stage, & 9-Exit, Stage Left. :D :kickass:

    Putting a quality order to Rush albums is too hard. So lets just say that albums 3 through 8 as #1, album 2 as #2, album 1 as number 3, most recent as #4, the rest of them as #5.

    Great band that has been a favorite of mine since the mid 70's. I can't disagree with anything anyone has said here, but am I am I the only one who loves Roll The Bones? It ain't 2112, Moving Pictures, Grace Under Pressure, etc., but I have always thought it was among the great albums they did and I am always pleasantly surprised at how good an album it is every time I put it on.

    2. Signals
    3. Presto
    4. Hold Your Fire
    5. Moving Pictures

    FYI-fellow Rush fans--VH1 Classic has been running an hour long video special of Rush's videos called Box Set. Geddy Lee does a good amount of commentary as well. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet.
