Got no thriller, it's all filler.

If stranded on a desert island with only this album to listen to, I'd frisbee chuck it out into the ocean.

I hate this POS album.
You did not hold your fire there!  :bang bang:

:lol:

Top 3:  TSS, Open Secrets, Second Nature

Filler:  Tai Shan, High Water

Album gets an 8 from me.  Solid album with a different sounding Rush.  I really enjoy it except for the last two songs.

My three filler tracks are High Water, Tai Shan, and...Second Nature. I never pass up an opportunity to bash Second Nature. It would be a filler track on a Celine Dion album. I still can't believe it was written and recorded by Rush, and then actually included on a Rush album. Awful.

My three faves are Open Secrets (the guitar solo and bass are excellent), Lock and Key, and Mission.
Second nature is a great song.  My favorite on the album.

I hope I'm not getting off on the wrong foot by making my very first Rush Forum post an endorsement of Hold Your Fire...but... :P
I've never had a problem with the synthesizer as an instrument, so I'm not immediately allergic to this era of Rush as a whole, as it seems some are.

And if one doesn't recognize that most (if not all) Rush albums have at least a thin layer of melted "cheese" on top, then I think there may be some denial involved.  I recognize that HYF has a generous helping of shredded cheese sprinkled over it, but it doesn't preclude my enjoyment of it.

I enjoy it *almost as much as Power Windows.  It contains some songs that I like better than some songs on PW, and visa versa.
I like a lot of the lyrical content on this one.  Very introspective, very human lyrics.

I'll go WAY out on a limb too, and say that I even enjoy Tai Shan (except for that bad nose-flute sample in the intro, which was waaay over used in the '80s).  :ph34r:
