Moving Pictures is to Rush's discography as Wimbledon is to the men's pro tennis tour

MP is a really great album, but as for sound and difficulty of the music, Hemispheres is the perfect masterpeiece

Moving Pictures? No. Tom Sawyer and Vital Signs weigh each side of the album down a good bit, and for me, are skippable tracks. Without those two, it would be close to a perfect album.

Permanent Waves, on the other hand; damn near perfection.

Yes it is a masterpiece but i am a bit over Tom Sawyer these days.Funny i just seem to skip over opening tracks like Spirit,Farewell to Kings,Subdivisions,Distant Early Warning,Big Money,Force Ten,just heard them too much and some of them are the weaker tracks on the album.I find myself listening to the second side more often if i play it on vinyl.For years i didn't like Alex's guitar tone  on the album and i thought the guitar solo on TS was terrible but he followed it up with one of his best on Red Barchetta. But apart from all these trifling little quibbles it is a classic and i am wearing my MP t-shirt today and i will lay my copy of HYF to rest

Does Red Barchetta really have a very memorable and remarkable guitar solo by Lifeson?

PeW and MP are as close to perfection as they got.  It is a masterpiece.

I'm not sure I can think of a classic album that doesn't have at least one song that isn't on par with the highlights, though.

It’s great. But I think the three that followed are equally great,but I think PEW is greater than any of those even though I rarely play it.
