    Alright Rush fans, what's your favorite album, and why?

    Mine, and it was the first one I owned, is Exit...Stage Left. I just love every track on the album.

    There are alot of other albums of theirs that I love too, but that one is my favorite.

    The poll only allowed enough for 20 spots, so if you like

    or the live albums

    Different Stages,
    Grace Under Pressure (Live),
    All The World's A Stage,
    Rush In Rio,
    A Show of Hands,

    you'll have to go with "other"...

    I also left off the compilations...
  2. I have to go with SIGNALS. That album just had it all for me. Geddy was in full stride for that one!
  3. For me, it's still Moving Pictures in a photo finish over Hemispheres, with Permanent Waves, Caress of Steel, 2112, A Farewell to Kings and Signals close behind. I love Snakes and Arrows, but Rush albums have to go through a process with me like baseball players do for the Hall of Fame: no eligibility for at least five years! I need to give S&A a few hundred more listens before it assumes its place in the pantheon.

    It's hard to pick my favorite since Rush had so many great albums but if I have to pick one: Hemispheres

    I picked Signals but so hard to choose. I always have at least 3 Rush albums on the iPod for work. Still love Exit Stage Left (my intro to Rush), A Farewell to Kings is great, Grace Under Pressure was my first tour, and I am really enjoying Snakes and Arrows, it is a great record.

    For me it's Moving Pictures by a country mile, but the one I like second best would be a very hard choice. I like a few of them that most people don't, and I don't like a few that most people do.

    I love Presto, Grace Under Pressure, Counterparts, and A Farewell to Kings.

    I don't like Roll The Bones, Test For Echo, Snakes and Arrows (sorry, everyone), or Fly By Night.

    I actually like the tunes better on Vapor Trails than on Snakes and Arrows for the most part. If they were to re-record that CD with the production quality that Snakes and Arrows has, it would be a really good album IMO.

    I love Snakes and Arrows but I love Vapor Trails even more. "How it is" and "Ceiling Unlimited" are just ridiculously good!

    Having recently completed my collection of every studio rush album (That's roughly £150 on rush albums!!!) i'd have to say 2112, was the first one I got and it just blows me away.

    Hold your fire, Hemispheres, Roll the bones, and snakes and arrows are also ones I rank highly.
