Superconductor is a strong contender for worst Rush song ever.

The video is particularly bad, especially the faux concert footage with the cheesy looking chubby guy rocking out front and center.

[I am referring to a guy in the audience, not Alex (Alex wasn't chubby yet).]

Best: SDT, Presto, AL

Filler: Anagram, Hand Over Fist

Most of the tracks are very good, but the filler is rather fillery.

Also never understood the hate for Superconductor, other than that time they segued into it midway through Xanadu...

*shivers*

i don't hate Superconductor.  just way to cheesy even for me, lol

sounds like a bad jingle for a battery commercial.  Xana-conductor was a high crime.

Presto's thin sound bothers me a lot less than the more involved bigger more thought out songs on Roll The Bones. Everyone can do the easy thing and blame Rupert Hine but Geddy and Alex were the ones who chose to record both albums with dinky sounding guitars

Neil said in a pre tour interview that he would've liked to perform Hand Over Fist in the R40 set list. Too bad it didn't happen

Available Light is ridiculously good.

Scars and Warpaint never did much for me.

If Presto had the production of Counterparts, it would be held in high esteem.  

Top 3

1. The Pass
2. Show Don't Tell
3. Presto

Filler - Mongo  The rest is all quality.

For me, the best production in the world wouldn't have helped Anagram or Hand Over Fist. I don't think either are terrible but I can skip them every time.
