Was a tough call among Dreamline, Animate, Cut to the Chase, and Alien Shore but went with Animate.

Ended up with 15.

Stick It Out is very special to me, because that was my first favorite Rush song, and the Rush song that made me love the band, when I saw them live 2011. So I put my vote on that one, tho I do like them all in one way or another. (Resist, I only like the acoustic one that they did on their R30 Tour, its kinda boring on the studio album).

The 90's are not cool years for this band.

Animate would be my fave tune.

Very strong era of RUSH music just below the synth era in terms of quality. I would/could never name just a single song as being a favourite or that much better than every other song, so I picked one that is in my group of absolute favourites that I doubted anyone one else would pick. And also because 'The World is a Cage for your Impotent Rage, but don't let it get to you' is one of my favourite lines of lyric ever, in any song.

i would say a majority of my least favorite songs on this list are from test for echo tbh. in my opinion, it's not their best.

Dreamline is my easy #1 with Cut to the Chase a strong runner up.

I'd say 20 like/love.

Animate and about half. Of the other half there are only a few that I really don't like, the rest I'm pretty indifferent.

I'm indifferent with almost everything on T4E. I don't love or dislike anything on there. I just like a few. So it's hard to feel too much of anything for that album.

With RTB, I really like Dreamline and Bravado but dislike/hate 3 songs on that album.

I have found that to be true with most of the albums post Signals.

I could have gone Dreamline, GOAC, Resist, T4E, Driven, or Half The World, but I went with The Color of Right.  Preachy, but awesome.

It's so sad that you always go for the nostalgia picks, ignoring modern and great music.  You and the other 80's dinosaurs give Rush fans a bad name.

But the 80s dinosaurs are so spry compared to the 70s dinosaurs that are the vast majority on this board and REALLY give RUSH fans a bad name. Now be nice to me since I also think that Test For Echo went a ways to right the wrongs of Counterparts (unlike most here) and I consider Color Of Right one of the best songs not only on Test For Echo but of this whole era. I think you'll find that compared to the majority on this board, I rank the 90s material very highly. I just rank the 80s albums a little bit higher.

I was being ironical: I'm one of the 70s dinosaurs Diatribe doesn't like (though I love all but 2 of the albums released after Presto).
