My Rush collection ranked in order

A Listmania! list by dangermash (Hartlip, Kent)
 
Hemispheres
1.  Hemispheres by Rush
The list author says:
  "Just played all my Rush albums for first time in about 5 years and Hemispheres was the freshest, bounciest of them all."
£4.99   Used & New from: £1.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

2112
2.  2112 by Rush
The list author says:
  "Rated as top by many, but only number 2 for me.  One or two tracks starting to sound a bit cheesy, but Neil Peart's drumming takes your breath away."
£4.99   Used & New from: £1.84
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (78 customer reviews)

Permanent Waves
3.  Permanent Waves by Rush
The list author says:
  "After 2112/Kings/Hemi, this sounds fresh and crisp.  Very radio friendly and start of the move away from epic into commercialism."
£5.42   Used & New from: £1.49
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Moving Pictures
4.  Moving Pictures by Rush
The list author says:
  "Peak of the radio-friendly, commercial era but I prefer Waves.  One question mark over this album is that guitar solos start to sound a bit samey."
£4.99   Used & New from: £3.02
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews)

Snakes & Arrows [Jewelcase Version]
5.  Snakes & Arrows [Jewelcase Version] by Rush
The list author says:
  "Huge return to form after a couple of turkeys, showing influences from many previous albums and (more importantly) dumping the grunge sound."
£9.14   Used & New from: £1.44
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (143 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Hold Your Fire
6.  Hold Your Fire by Rush
The list author says:
  "Best album from the synths era, and one that's vastly underrated.  Every track a winner."
Used & New from: £2.78
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Caress Of Steel
7.  Caress Of Steel by Rush
The list author says:
  "The pre-2112 album, with a taste of things to come.  One to play when you fancy 2112 but  are sick of it.  Very underrrated."
£6.06   Used & New from: £1.85
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

A Show of Hands
8.  A Show of Hands by Rush
The list author says:
  "My only live cd.  Although it's excellent and Rush are great live, I wouldn't recomend Rush live cds.  They don't sound different enough to studio versions."
£7.75   Used & New from: £3.42
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Power Windows
9.  Power Windows by Rush
The list author says:
  "The other good album from the synths era.  Some brilliant tracks but a tiny bit of filler too."
Used & New from: £2.15
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

See buying options
A Farewell To Kings
10.  A Farewell To Kings by Rush
The list author says:
  "For me, the worst of the albums from the epic era.  Playing this for the first time in 5 years, it felt dated.  Essential part of anyone's collection though."
£4.99   Used & New from: £1.88
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Presto
11.  Presto by Rush
The list author says:
  "Definitely into inessential stuff now.  This one's still pretty good though.  First sign of synths being phased out.."
Used & New from: £1.04
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Grace Under Pressure
12.  Grace Under Pressure by Rush
The list author says:
  "Slight improvement on Signals but still a bit too commercial."
£6.07   Used & New from: £1.35
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Roll The Bones
13.  Roll The Bones by Rush
The list author says:
  "Not too bad I guess.  Definitely less synths and more guitar than preceding albums."
£5.24   Used & New from: £1.96
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Fly By Night
14.  Fly By Night by Rush
The list author says:
  "Pre-epic era, with Neil Peart finding his feet and a little of the Led Zep influence still there."
Used & New from: £2.17
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Counterparts
15.  Counterparts by Rush
The list author says:
  "Some good stuff there but definite signs that the band are losing their touch.  Maybe they shouldn't have ditched the synths - things started to go wrong around that point."
£12.99   Used & New from: £0.82
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Signals
16.  Signals by Rush
The list author says:
  "A definite low point in the 80s and an inauspicious start to the synths era."
£7.99   Used & New from: £1.35
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Test For Echo
17.  Test For Echo by Rush
The list author says:
  "Played this once in 1996 and then not again until 2005.  Might try it again in 2014.  Didn't bother with Vapor Trails, which I hear has a similar grungy sound to Echo."
£7.09   Used & New from: £2.74
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)
