The ultimate Rush albums poll!
Tick your most fave Rush studio album.

It is PeW for me, without a doubt.

PeW is one of mine...but it's seriously a toss-up. I'm juggling four or five of them.

When I was a new Rush fan, back in 2011, Snakes & Arrows was my favorite album. I was listening to it all the time.

Now? Now I can not answer this question. I have said that Caress Of Steel been my favorite album, I have said that 2112 been my favorite album, I have said that Hemispheres been my favorite album. I have probably said that about every album they have done. All the albums is good in one way or another.

What I can say tho is that Caress To Steel up to Moving Pictures is all masterpiece albums.

That's me, too (except I was a 'new' Rush fan in 1979-'80). I'm thinking of some different albums from those, but the result is the same. I can't choose just one.

And I don't have to! Haha.

With a gun to my head, I can narrow it down a little bit more. It's either Permanent Waves or Hold Your Fire.

Or Hemispheres.

Or...

You can by using simple random sample.

Same here.  I've got these as my top tier beginning to end listening experiences, and preference of one over the other depends on my mood:

RUSH (debut)
Caress of Steel
Permanent Waves
Moving Pictures
Grace Under Pressure
Presto
Vapor Trails

Permanent Waves, there is no other correct answer.

Close this thread.

Right now and for a while it's been Grace Under Pressure. The only thing that would make this album even better is if Geddy played that snarling Fender Jazz bass he's been using and abusing from PeW-Signals and Counterparts onward.

Top 4 are pretty set in stone for me now...

2112
Moving Pictures
Permanent Waves
Power Windows

On any given day, one of them could be number 1. They are all that good and that close in quality for me.

Every time i listen to certain albums is like they could be top so really I can only list a group that could possibly fit the bill

Permanent Waves, Vapor Trails, Grace Under Pressure, Hold Your Fire, Counterparts, Signals, and Hemispheres,

Is just ridiculous leaving 2112 & Power Windows out and even Caress of Steel. I don't know what i'm doing, it's madness.

Looking back at the list though, it probably says something that I thought of Waves first, and if I had to list them again, it would still be first out.

MP still the best for me.  Most consistent effort and one of the best sounding albums of all time.
