28:3 votes for Rush? Such a huge difference?

Some time ago I said that I like LZ IV better than Permanent Waves, but now I changed my mind. PeW is my fave Rush album and it beats LZ IV.
Overall LZ still wins in my book. And I still think they are a better band.

Well, 2 other TRFers agree with you. I actually think that's an achievement. And I'm serious. I'm not sure if there are any bands who would be able to get more than 5 votes vs Rush. It's not a surprising thing of course since this a Rush message board

Yeah, you are right. But it is possible only here, on pretty much any other rock music forum Rush would be crushed by Zep.

No surprise there either.
There's never a right answer when a preference question is posed.

Let's see...album-wise, I'd say...

RUSH debut > Zep I
Zep II > FBN
Caress of Steel > Zep III
Zep IV > 2112
Houses of the Holy > AFTK
Physical Graffiti > Hemispheres
PWaves > Presence
Moving Pictures > ITTOD

ATWAS/ESL > SRTS

Studio-wise it's a toss-up for me, but live, RUSH slays the mighty Zep.

I find about 75% of LZ songs boring.

I find about 75% of Rush songs in the synth era up through but not including VT boring.

2112-MP blows Zep's entire catalog away though.    Almost pure perfection from the Canucks during that time.   And there's probably enough from the debut through CoS and VT-CA that's as good as Zep.

I disagree with 75% of your post.

+1 Goose.  Never saw LZ live, but videos and CD's I've seen and heard of their live stuff were shite.

Two very different bands.  Two great bands. My two favorite bands.  Too hard to pick one. BTW got tickets for Robert Plant Feb 28th in Oakland. Still puts on an amazing show.  See him if you can. Coolest cat in Rock n Roll.
