In release order:
GUP
RTB
S&A

RTB and S&A both have a great track (the opener, the "hit"), but then drop off a cliff.  On S&A, I wanted more upbeat, dynamic songs like "Far Cry," but too much of the album plods along, mid-tempo, with nothing too exciting, except maybe the instrumentals.

GUP (did I make enemies choosing GUP?) is a better overall album than the above two.  Nothing "wrong" with it per se, which is more than I can say for RTB and S&A, but no song really excites.  Where's the track or tracks about which you say "Holy shit, I have GOT TO hear that again"?  It's the last of their albums I replaced with a  CD, there was no hurry to get it in the newer format.

Bottom three?

Snakes And Arrows

Ahh, the folly of youth. :P

What folly? I'm sure us youngsters know good prog, and Rush certainly isn't the best Prog band out there. Fellow HYF fanboys stick together.

1. Caress (sorry, I've tried - do really like Bastille Day and Lakeside Park)
2. HYF (way too many misses, the last two being bottom 5 all-time Rush songs)
3. RTB - Starts strong, fades badly

17. Snakes & Arrows (first half is really good, second half sound's like a bunch of uninspired old men)
18. Test For Echo (decent album, but no stand out tracks at all)
19. Roll The Bones (a few cool songs, but a lot of unengaging pop drivel--at least HYF has emotion and inspiration!)

Counterparts - the grunge experiment
Test for Echo - the anti grunge after previous album experiment
Hold Your Fire - the live version of the songs are miles better, more guts.
