I can't believe theses two classic Rush albums were never pitted on this board.

AFTK is a winner in my book.

Nether are my favs.

i picked 2112 for side 1.

side 2 is very underwhelming for me though.

and AFTK is WAY over praised.

This is like the battle of side 2s, because side one of both are equal epics.

There's not much I like about AFTK side 2 and Cygnus X-1 is annoying and cheesy to me. Side two of 2112 at least has Bangkok and Something for Nothing, so it's 2112.

Love both, love Side two of 2112, love Madrigal, Tears is Top 10 for me, and Cygnus X1 is the greatest shit ever recorded

This is damn near impossible, but I'm going with Kings

IMO 2112 may have been the breakthrough, but the elements that made up the classic Rush sound start with AFtK.

Also, I think most of side 2 of 2112 is not good.

AFTK is a wonderful piece of artwork.  2112 is even better.  Its close but 2112 gets my vote.

2112 easily with me.  I put AFTK in the bottom of RUSH albums.  I find it disjointed and missing the mark more than most RUSH albums.  Two good songs, really.  One long, one short.
