All other responses are folly, you're welcome!
I think the first two are locks, with MP side 1 or Hemi side 2 equals in the final spot.

No option for Hold Your Fire Side 2? You have Tai Shan and High Water...

I voted the 2 Epics (2112, Hemispheres) and Moving Pictures Side 1. I think MP Side 1 is not only their best but perhaps the greatest complete side of an album any rock band ever...

I voted for 6 sides.  No one stopped me.

How can one love Hemispheres and La Villa as much as I do and not pick both sides?
Xanadu and Cygnus X-1?
Free will and Jacob's Ladder and Natural Science?

Rush is one of those bands for whom, if some thug said "pick yer favourites or I take out a kneecap," I'd say, "right or left - it doesn't matter to me."

Could be almost anything from CoS up to Signals but I chose 2112 side one, Hemisphere's side one and AFTK side one. The only reason I didn't chose PeW side one is because Freewill and SotR are just so overplayed.

You did?  I'm going to delete my votes and try that.

Edit:  Added Side 2 of Hemispheres :cheers:

We all know Tai Shan is Rush's best song right?
