I was thinking that another possible thread might be "The ultimate Rush proto-prog metal compilation" - what tracks would you include?  You are allowed to take sections of side long tunes like 2112, Necromancer, etc.  What's the heaviest album you could compile?

Not a fan of dissecting bands by genre. Metal, prog, rock, whatever. This is the TRUE reason why the PeW 70s/80s nonsense argument persists. Vivisection!

Good is good whatever it is.

By-Tor fits fine on an album with Strangiato and Limelight.

In short, I bet such a thread would do great as TRF generally likes separating this and that into categories.

Sure, but what about those days when you want a) Rush and b) something damned heavy?  Forget the genres - what tunes fit together just for sheer holyjeezum heaviness?

Then I pick a specific album which shows where they are at a specific time in their lives. And usually it’s a single overall mood. One of those moods being “heavy stuff”.

Slap on the debut or Vapor Trails!

Rush's last 3 studio albums (VT, S&A, CA) would've been better with at least two or three weaker songs cut off. All of them are too long. For example, Vapor Trails shouldve ended appropriately with Sweet Miracle instead of the dreck that followed it.

Here's the opposite, two, four and three tracks respectively from Counterparts, T4E and Snakes and Arrows to make one really bad album...

Track 1: Speed of Love
Track 2: Eveyrday Glory
Track 3: Virtuality
Track 4: Half the World
Track 5: Color of Right
Track 6: Carve Away the Stone
Track 7:  Bravest face
Track 8: Good News First
Track 9: Larger Bowl

I dare you to give that playlist a try!

I actually enjoy Everyday Glory. Its a sad yet hopeful song. Its also, on a more technical note, recorded/mastered noticeably much louder than the other songs on the album. One of my Rush head friends claimed that EG was recorded on analog tape instead of digital like the rest of the songs thus making it jump out of the speakers like it does

Half The World and Carve Away The Stone I like too. Virtuality is a good groove wasted on a dated lyric. The Snakes songs blow, you got that right. I also would've thrown in a few others.

Virtuality's jam is interesting (being the best music overall of the songs I listed) but the balance of the song is excruciatingly dull.

A full album out of Presto, Counterparts, and Snakes and Arrows?? That's a tall order. I'll give you a 28-minute EP instead.

Far Cry
Cold Fire
The Main Monkey Business
Malignant Narcissism
Animate
We Hold On




Oh, looky there. Nothing from Presto.
