By Tor, In The End and Anthem are all top tier Rush - classic in my book, so they are the Top 3

I love the entire album, but if a totem poll must be made, Making Memories is at the bottom

oh, and yes, Fly By Night is Top 10 as far as albums

I don't have bottom 3 or a top 3 of FBN man, but out of the 15 Rush albums I have heard, it ranks at #9.

anthem, bytor and BBB are easy top 3 picks.

bottom is best i can (just another early throw away song) and rivendell :zzz:

not in my top 10...maybe around 12 or 13 considering the deep catalog. Top ten, subject to my current mood and in no particular order: rush, 2112, atwas, kings, hemi, PW, MP, Signals, p windows, counterparts, CA.

Not a real fan of the album, but I love the title track and Making Memories.  ByTor is great live.

Rivendell is a snoozer, and I put the album toward the bottom.  I almost never listen to it, and don't even own it.

Don't let John Rogers see that.  He'll make you turn in your Rush fan card and send you packing.  :yes:

Even I own Fly By Night.  :)

Top 5 album for me!
Although I'll skip "Rivendell" from time to time, it's a fun listen from stem to stern. Nice to hear that slide solo in Making Memories.
fave 3 tunes: In the End, By-Tor, Best I Can

Making Memories is very underrated.

Rivendell is the single worst track Rush has ever done.

Fly By Night the album is good, but not in my Top 10.

Great album! Easily top 10 and better than anything from PoW through S&A.

By Tor and Anthem are the best, but I love everything on this album, though Making Memories is at the bottom.

Rivendell is a great track and doesn't deserve the shit it takes, it's better than anything on Presto by a fair bit.

Rivendell isn't one of my favorite songs but I don't hate it.  It's just wimpy.   All the rest of the songs are way up there for me. Anthem, Fly By Night and By-Tor are probably my three favorites but that's not to degrade any of the others. Definitely in the top 10.

One bad track Rivendell.

And yes it's in my top 10.

That's how I went...though By-Tor barely got beat out by BB&B.

I think I put it just inside my Top 10 last time I tried in whatever thread.

I really love this album. Used to think it a dud, but I replayed it several times in one week and realised I was wrong.

Weakest track? Ouch. Cannot vote that.

Also I might be in the minority but I prefer the studio version of In The End to the ATWAS one. I think it is one if their finest recordings ever.

I think its top ten now.

Presto should really just be called Sn.   And my hearing is just fine, thank you.

Once again, Rivendell>>>>>>>>>>>Presto and FBN > anything from PoW to S&A, though an argument can be made for VT, especially the remix.   But then again, I like hard rock, with the occasional slow song thrown in, not easy listening or bad 90s A OR, or sermons set to turgid, droning amelodic dreck.

I'm sure he will take that into consideration,  But, lately, he's being one tough cookie.  You know, he's working himself to the bone trying to raise lice awareness.  Somehow, he completely missed my neck of the woods:  http://www.krem.com/...-help/470622917

:huh:

Frankly, if I were you, I'd consider making a hefty contribution to his "gofundme" account which a little birdie tells me he'll be setting up soon.  But don't tell him I told you.  ;)

Rivendell is one of the most boring songs Rush ever did.
