3 Rush album choices (that seem to be the most polarising Rush albums, apologies if yours is not here ) -  due to poll limits.

I would submit that their debut is about as polarizing as anything I've seen and read about on here(at least). Jus sayin. Carry on...

Yep that was explained I couldn't get anymore choices up - I am a luddite. - only limited to three that were suggested elsewhere.
Thanks for letting me carry on.

Narps, are you suggesting polarizing views about what is polarizing?  That is deep, dude.

Caress is an album  I put on late at night with a glass of wine.A throwback to the 70s when things were simpler and sense of adventure.HYF may have dated a little but I still have great memories of wearing out my vinyl.A polarizing album for the heavy crowd because two many poppy synths tunes and bad hairdos.VT is polarising because of the dreadful sound.TFE could be polarizing because there is a lot of snow on the cover.

I enjoy the original mix of VT more than the remix - I think Freeze is one of the more underrated Rush songs .. Hold Your Fire is enjoyable too, but with those two albums, I don't feel love or hate ..

I love Caress Of Steel

As far as polarizing goes, I would've guessed Snakes is way up there with VT

The self titled debut album with its uninspired working man like lyrics and nearly adequate drum play. It's like bad Canadian Def Leppard.
