Didnt like Vapour Trails on first listen but I grew to enjoy it
Always liked Grace under Pressure but Moving Pictures, 2112, Hemispheres, Perminent Waves are diffrent Class
All the live albumns are terrific
Snakes and Arrows is a great return to form

I still struggle with 'Vapour trails' but love 'Snakes and Arrows'. We need to get a campaign rolling for Rush to tour the UK again...must have been 2 years since last time...

Moving Pictures was my first Rush album. Permanent Waves was my favourite for a long time but Power Windows may be my favourite now.

hard to pick a definitive disc as each era was completely different,from the the 70's it has to be All The Worlds A Stage- all the classic early tracks on a superb live disc,(re 2112 i actually prefer side 2).

From the 80's easily Moving Pictures probably the best studio disc they ever done(although signals does run it close)

late 80's 90's probably the least i listened but Counterparts was superb standing out amongst the rest(Different stages is also magnificent) sooooooo if i had to list them then:
1) all the worlds a stage
2)Moving Pictures
4) Different stages live
5) Signals
6) The rest of them ha ha

Mad Earwig, Rush haven't played at all since early 08 when the S&A tour ended.

Apparently they are in early discussions regarding a new album, but don't hold your breath, Peart has just become a father again, so may have other things to think about.

As for hitting Europe again, I think it'll be a few BIG shows, then that's yer lot.

For me it has to be one of three. My first taste of Rush came when I was 5 (back in 1980) and having 3 older brothers meant I knew Sabbath and Zeppelin songs better than nursery rhymes haha. Anyway the first albums I heard was 2112 and Permanent Waves which to this day get a good blasting from my stereo. The third has to be Moving Pictures purely because of Tom Sawyer, which is my all time fave Rush tune!

it would be easier to list the ones i dont like,,,,, no it isnt, love em all but i suppose mid period, permenant waves to roll the bones is best, and thats as close as i can come to naming a favourite

Absolutely not. The lyrics are fantastic and the music is, as ever, Rush.....

Why not have a slightly poppier edge?

After all, does all Beethoven sound the same? Does a symphony have to sound like a quartet or a piano sonata?

(What might be sacrilege is I listen to oodles more Rush than Ludwig - just not enough time)

Signals and Power Windows. Best heard on vinyl as the cds, even the remastered ones still have a brittle quality to the sound that the vinyl did not.

Kings or 2112.

Seasons greetings....it is good to see 2112 getting some votes!

Some people struggle with 'side 2' but just playing it now on a good stereo and it is brilliant.
Disappointed in Rio CD as the sound is a bit muddy (DVD much better)
new years resolution: track down more live b*otlegs.

Hey Tripmender....thank you.

I do like to collect a few of these live shows. Rush are like Zeppelin and sabbath, you can never get enough of them.

...been playing La Villa Strangiato....this is one amazing track!

1. Farewell To Kings
2. 2112
3. Hemisperes

I love all three (and most of the rest too) but I think this is the order of the top three for me. Farewell to Kings was my introduction to Rush so remains my favourite.

Hold Your Fire (I'm probably in the minority)
Moving Pictures

Personally I prefer "The Circle Game" from '67. Excellent versions of Joni Mitchell and James Taylor songs, and the original and best "No Regrets".

I would have previously said it's a toss up between Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves, but I now rate Snakes & Arrows their equal. Test For Echo, Hemispheres and Farewell To Kings I also like, but it's the previously mentioned three I rate the highest.

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Jan 2010, 16:13:58 GMT
What a great question but how can you decide that??!
I got hooked when I brought 2112 a week after it was released and have brought every album since. I still love listening to Permanent Waves and Hemispheres but credit where it's due, I can't take Vapor Trails out of my car.

I'm with you on that Living room I can't take Vapour Trails out of our car - then again it's buried under 6' foot of snow on the Saddleworth moors!
