    I'll participate on the condition that we do every other DT album afterwards.

    A lot of people who aren't huge fans of DT consider it their best album though.

    They're wrong because Train of Thought is their best album.

    My choices are Fortune and the last two tracks after a quick relisten

    That was pretty tough, I went with "A Fortune in Lies," "Light Fuse and Get Away" and "The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun."

    Yeah, I actually like the first track but I had to pick 3 of them so it had to go

    It's painful. It's going to be worse if we do the rest of their albums.

    Images and Words and Train of Thought are going to be super tough

    I'm looking forward to having a reason to bump them to the top of my listening playlists though. Similarly, I hope we do a Rush discog game for the same reason.

    Oh my God, Rush would be torture but I would be more than happy to do that poll. I would need 200% clarification on how the scoring works for those though before I do it.

    Edit: Actually, crimsonfloyd is a Rush fan so he might be willing to do it

    I would make it more interesting, like, you have to include one album from each decade or something because otherwise people will just stick to the 70s material like normies

    For me it would be a good excuse to properly delve into their post-70's material. I've done some exploration but not as much as I would prefer. You've definitely influenced me a lot to go and check out that material.

    Some of that material is better than the 70s stuff. Geddy's bass work really shines on those records. Presto is an underrated masterpiece. Omni is a normie when it comes to Rush. I never understood her reasoning when it came to their material. I never thought she was a true fan.

    I just remembered:

    @Talos of Atmora and @Oblivious Maximus are also Rush dudes so I think we would have enough to do it and I'm sure others would throw in as well who might be interested in exploring their material

    I'm definitely not going to do their discography, I was only planning on doing this one but I'll do I&W and Awake if the demand is there.

    It's neglected because the production is worse and the singer isn't LaBrie. Anyone that legitimately enjoys the other two Moore albums should at least find something to enjoy in this one imo.

    We should definitely do a song survivor for The Astonishing.

    "Status Seeker" and "Ytse Jam" are easy picks for me. After that, I guess I'll join the "The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun" dogpile, although I like the atmospheric intro a lot.

    Still haven't heard The Astonishing. I actually liked the first single they released, but 2.5 hours or whatever is way too fucking much.

    I have never reached the end of The Astonishing, I'm not convinced it has one.
