I intentionally omitted Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures from the poll.

My bottom 3 Rush albums:
1.Test for Echo
2.Vapor Trails (original)
3.Roll the Bones

I could throw their debut into bottom 3, but I don't rate that album at all.

Roll The Bones is half gutless garbage and half gutless fun. It's really pretty bad.

CP just never hit me the right way from the start. I appreciate a lot more than I used to, but I still can't rank it above anything but RTB.

FBN is just not quite focused enough in spots. It's a little too wishy washy, understandably though. I still like it a lot, but it's not as enthralling as the vast majority of their releases.

Of these RTB is the only one I truly don't care for.

Yes, really.  I don't like it.

I understand your shock.  I feel the same way whenever anyone here tells me they think Xanadu stinks, or that The Weapon is soulless.

SnA, CA and VT.  The start and finish of crammed lyrics.  I like 2 to 3 songs off each.  Honorable mention to Presto.  God, I was so pissed when that one came out.  fortunately, it grew on me a little...

Without a doubt, these 3 and in this order:

1) Snakes
2) Bones
3) Test

I can't vote as my opinion isn't reflected in any of the 2nd question options.
- I dislike Snakes.
- I dislike a lot of Bones but basically I don't care about it.
- Meanwhile, Test is just there being non-offensive yet not too thrilling either.
