Well, I really like Rivendell, Madrigal AND tai Shan. Is it a girl thing? Maybe.

Of the songs listed, I fully enjoy Going Bald, Emotion Detector, Dog Years, Superconductor, Face Up, and Stars Look Down.  Remove the chorus, and Neurotica is fine as well.  The remaining five are all pretty unlistenable for me.

This list is basically my list of Rush songs I can't stand (except Face Up and Emotion Detector)... especially Rivendell.

Tai Shan is the only one on this list that I never listen to, so I suppose that’s the one.

I loathe Dog Years and Rivendell is a close second.  I guess I'm one of the few that likes Red Lenses.

No sign of High Tide or Net girl, net boy whatever that song is. I can live with those quieter songs on the earlier albums as they kind of operate as a breather between the epics but from Grace Under Pressure onwards there were some cringy clunkers like Second Nature which sounds like something Captain and Tenille would write or Superconductor which sounds like Kenny Loggins wrote it. Then there's the Ying and Yang albums; Counterparts and Test For Echo, both of which I would rarely listen too. Things have got back on track with the last few albums, Clockwork Angels could have been fabulous with a few filler songs cut and the production which makes it wearing on the ears.

Just my opinion.

Virtuality has been mentioned twice, though it's not near being one of the worst, though it does share an album with the band's biggest embarrassment, Half the World.
