A Listmania! list by Julian Phipps (Engalnd)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Vapor Trails
1.  Vapor Trails by Rush
The list author says:
  "In my opinion, the best Rush Album.  Consistently solid and imaginative songs, full of inspiring concepts.  Not easy to get into, but gets better and better with each listen."
5.92   Used & New from: 1.89
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews)

Presto
2.  Presto by Rush
The list author says:
  "Wholey underated album.  Some real focus and energy emerging after the wishy-washyness of Hold Your Fire.  Classic tracks, fantastic drumming.  Not nearly as heavy as later albums, but crystal clear."
Used & New from: 1.50
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Moving Pictures
3.  Moving Pictures by Rush
The list author says:
  "It's Moving Pictures, dummy!  The only problem with tis album is that it's not long enough."
6.53   Used & New from: 2.38
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews)

Snakes & Arrows [Jewelcase Version]
4.  Snakes & Arrows [Jewelcase Version] by Rush
The list author says:
  "Excellently produced... but falls off the top slot as songs seem too short... slightly too chorus heavy?  Nevertheless, a fantastic album."
13.47   Used & New from: 2.66
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (143 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Signals
5.  Signals by Rush
The list author says:
  "One of the first Rush albums I heard.  So different to the others, yet so similar.  Lovely pur songs that build on the strengths of Moving Pictures."
5.49   Used & New from: 1.87
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Grace Under Pressure
6.  Grace Under Pressure by Rush
The list author says:
  "Difficult to choose between this and Signals really.  Love every track - fantastic to hear them live still on the recent tour."
5.27   Used & New from: 1.76
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Test For Echo
7.  Test For Echo by Rush
The list author says:
  "Mixed bag of very strong songs.  Clearly a transitional stage - changing for the better.  Can't get enough of 'Limbo'"
7.01   Used & New from: 2.83
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Counterparts
8.  Counterparts by Rush
The list author says:

12.99   Used & New from: 0.71
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Power Windows
9.  Power Windows by Rush
The list author says:

Exit ... Stage Left

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

A Show of Hands
11.  A Show of Hands by Rush

Rush In Rio
12.  Rush In Rio by Rush

Different Stages - Live
13.  Different Stages - Live by Rush
The list author says:
  "Not enough new songs.  Irritating nobody's hero.  Disc three is a delight - especially Cygnus X-1.  All we need now is a live version of Hemispheres and the set is complete."

Hold Your Fire

Hemispheres

Caress Of Steel
