1 and 1A. Nothing and even the greatness of Strangers could replace my first and favorite album of all-time...

ATWAS by far .....one of the best live albums ever made and the best thing Rush have ever produced.

ATWAS vs anything in a Rush Forum.

Doubtful that the contender will even get 5 votes.

Yessongs is about the only other live album I can think of that might garner a vote or two against ATWAS. As great as Strangers is and it is, the genre and style is just a bit too different...

:o

I am...gobsmacked, Lucas. But okay.



For me, it's ATWAS by several country miles. I've tried UFO, but have just never gotten into them.

See if it went up against RR Tribute, then I would HAVE to choose Tribute as that's my feeling for Randy...ATWAS is SUCH a steller recording though.  It would be very close.

Understood. You can't get a much better recorded live album in my view and if you love crisp, clear and bad@ss lead guitar this doesn't disappoint. ATWAS can never be knocked from the top for me at least...

Allow me to be the 2nd voter for UFO

I like ATWAS (particularly 2112) but it's never been among my favourites :outtahere:

Strangers.  I love Rush waaaayyyyy more than UFO, but Schenkers lead work is so melodic and with such great tone, I have to go with Strangers
