I hear you. I only gave one song a grade of B or higher.

I think the most telling stat is that (currently) 14 out of 18 voters would be ok with never again hearing 1 or more songs off the list

I like four of the songs but the combination just kills it.

The 3 Roll The Bones songs are ALL awesome, especially the last 2. They are among my all time favourite songs. The two other albums are mired by boring instrumentals amongst the last three songs, but otherwise are pretty good. I lean toward the 2 Test For Echo songs a little more, but not by much.

1. Neurotica (A+)
2. You Bet Your Life (A+)
3. Resist (A)
4. Ghost Of A Chance (A)
5. Cold Fire (A-)
6. Carve Away The Stone (B+)
7. Everyday Glory (B)
8. Limbo (D)
9. Leave That Thing Alone (D-)

"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 written.

Ugh.   Can't pick any of them.

How far the band fell in less than 20 years... :sigh:

I would be OK with never hearing anything off this list again.   In fact I'm well on the way to doing so.

I live in an odd corner of the world where You Bet Your Life is a fun song and a fan favorite.

And in that same strange world, Ghost of a Chance does nothing for people.

I don't think there is a trio of Rush albums where I fall so separate from other fans than these three. There are many other examples of my Bizarro World experience with that trio.

There are three songs that I like from those listed (Ghost..., Leave..., Cold Fire), but they aren't indispensible.  The rest are completely disposable.

Voted RTB because while Cold Fire is my favorite out of all of those songs, RTB has Ghost of a Chance AND Neurotica, where Counterparts only has Cold Fire and TFE only has Limbo

  • 1. Counterparts 2. TFE 3. RTB
  • 1. LTTA (Geddy rocks it, especially live) and Cold Fire and Everyday Glory are in the top half of my Rush catalog favs.
  • 2, Resist (like the variance in the recorded and live, acoustic (see Rush in Rio) version, Carve Away the Stone is catchy and lyrically solid
  • 3. After Dreamline, Bravado and RTB, RTB falls off drastically.

The T4E trio win here, though it's pretty slim pickings.......In the third poll I was forced to vote as it was a required option, but there are no songs on any of the albums I would rate a B or higher.

Yeah, I forgot to add the ‘none’ option as I did in question 2.

Can't vote.   They all suck, so none are my favorite and none are a C- or higher, let alone B-.
Yep.  LTTA, and that's pushing it.
