I suppose if I could only pick two I would say Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves. CoS and FBN are pretty similar to each other also though.

Kings and Hemispheres in terms of tone and musical structure, I think.

I guess there are several we could chose. How about Hold Your Fire and Power Windows?

Those two would probably be second on my list.  Them or Counterparts/T4E.

Rush albums and understood best in pairs.

Rush and FBN

CoS and 2112

AFTK and Hems

PeW and MP

Signals and p/g (these two might be the least similar out of all the pairs)

PoW and HYF

Presto and RTB

CP and T4E

then it breaks down a little

VT

SnA and Feedback

CA

For my money, probably the most similar pair is PoW and HYF, with Presto and RTB and with PeW and MP and with CP and T4E close behind. Maybe toss in AFTK and Hems as well, though I think AFTK has a much rawer and more organic sound in general while Hems is much more polished and soft. Then again they have a ton in common too, so what do I know?

I also think PeW and Signals are really similar, and PoW is a type of Hems in my mind.

To me it's Power Windows and Hold Your Fire but I can see the case for A Farewell To Kings and Hemispheres. If backed into a corner I could probably even go with Counterparts and Test For Echo.

Presto & RTB...eerily similar in that both albums blow goats, are rife with bland pop ambitions and are generally uninspired "our record deal says we have to make another album" repetitive globs of boredom.

In other words: they both suck. A lot. Hand Over Fist...'nuff said.

MPs and PWs. Any of the songs on either of these albums could be on the other.

:D As much as I like parts of those records it's hard to disagree with that treatise.

Presto and RtB are pretty smiliar in that they are both moving away from the synth driven sound of the few before them but not quite back to their heavy power trio roots which they would explore on CP.
