Mostly when Rush get 'air time' its either 2112,Tom Sawyer, Closer to the heart, spirit of radio or recently Subdivisions. All great tracks but there are so many other great tracks. My rarely played faves;-
Nobody's Hero
Manhattan Project
Lock & Key
Digital Man

Oh boy there are so mnay. Better stop now.

Over to you-

Plenty of these. Subdivisions is my favourite Rush track but I would also nominate the following:

Parts 1-3 of "Fear" (The Enemy Within, The Weapon, Witch Hunt)
Red Tide
Red Sector A
The Analog Kid
Between The Wheels
Prime Mover
La Villa Strangiato
Free Will
Beneath, Between & Behind
Here Again

Are rush a failing group or have they managed to masterfully reinvent themselves?
After all Clockwork angels is a great album. For me they get better with age, at least after the truly dreadful live time machine album. What were they thinking of; Geddy's vocals are dreadful (I know he had been ill but surely thay must have had other stuff recorded?)
My fave album - A show of hands, truly a great Live album & How it should be done.

I think it's best if Rivendell is rarely aired. ;¬)

I don't think that Rush have ever had 'air time' here. They certainly have never toured here (which is mega-annoying).

Here's 10 of my fave 'studio' tracks that are as good as the next 20...

1. Circumstances
2. Something For Nothing
3. Natural Science
4. Limelight
5. Subdivisions
6. Distant Early Warning
7. Afterimage
8. Open Secrets
9. Earthshine
10. The Wreckers

...and 10 great live performances:

1. Distant Early Warning (from Grace Under Pressure tour)
2. Vital Signs (from Grace Under Pressure tour)
3. Natural Science (from Different Stages)
4. Cygnus X-1 (from Rush In Rio)
5. Subdivisions (from R30)
6. Roll The Bones (from Different Stages)
7. Analog Kid (from Different Stages)
8. Xanadu (from Exit Stage Left)
9. Limelight (from Different Stages)
10. Mystic Rhythms (from R30)

I know it's from an album even Rush themselves don't like but I like listening to 'Lakeside park'.

Fly by night
Caress of steel
Farewell to kings etc etc

Rush have written many great tracks, i loved this band 30 plus years ago & still do, my collection is on vinyl & i have no appliance on which to play such tracks ? i recently started buying cds of my fave albums, nothings changed although my missus thinks i've lost the plot LOL also getting back into Ted nugent, Van halen, i could go on & on but you get my RIFF.

I went to see the Manic Street Preachers on Sunday - Nicky Wire is famously if rather improbably a big fan of Rush. Half way through the gig James Dean Bradfield launched into the intro for Spirit Of The Radio before seguing into one of their own. Don't reckon many of the assembled throng realised. Did prompt the mate I was with to consider giving Rush a go (he's such a Manics fanboy) so I'll be lending him Retrospective 1 (1974-1980) and Retrospective II (1981-1987) to see if anything clicks.

He's younger and better looking - that's enough surely?

I've seen them 3 times now, always with the same fanboy who can't drive, and they never fail to deliver. Fanboy declared this to be about the best he's seen them and I wouldn't contradict that. James Dean Bradfield is an old school rock god under all the Nicky Wire inspired revolutionary sloganeering (your own private portaloos at Reading, yeah, very Marxist I'm sure). Band to watch out for were the support, Wolf Alice; very janglesome Sundays-ish stuff on record but more visceral live.

Sorry Rush fans but he did ask.
