Share 'em here! What opinions do you have that others might find disagreeable about our collective favorite band!


Here's one:

Virtuality has one of the best riffs in post 90s Rush's entire catalogue.

I Love Anagram.

Neils fill towards the end after the saint turns to Sin is delicious.

I dislike Between the Wheels. Red Lenses is stronger.

I like Superconductor... Stick it Out...

VT is waaayyyy better than SnA.

Here's a stand by for me.

Snakes and Arrows is very underrated and woefully tossed aside.

And Clockwork Angels is and always was an overrated generic album that just happened to be made by Rush.........so that equals a win

i guess?

I think it's by far the weakest 80's record.

i like about 2 songs.

I think ultravox sucks and that's basically Rush's take on them.

So that's that, lol
