I had no clue this thread would take off so well! Great job Mick!!! :lol:

I'm disagreeing with so much of what's being said right now it's hilarious. That comment about CoS vs. 2112, priceless.

Okay okay, here's another:

Hemispheres is significantly worse than Signals, and not even as good as Power Windows.

you want Controversial.  that's been me here since post one, lol

It's all cool though.

Power Windows and Signals ARE better than Hemispheres bro.

good call.

Mick

Where is Segue? He'd love this thread!

I was trying to lure him with my GUP post.  he ADORES the album.  no dice, lol

Mick

:lol: darn, he must not be watching rn. I can't wait to see him find this thread :popcorn:

The original title of Red Barchetta was Red Barracuda, but Heart already wrote a song about a Barracuda and they didn't want to shit on that. Plus, Neil protested about writing a car fantasy song about something American made.

True story. Really. It is.

Portnoy would join, write the next album and produce it himself. It'd have five epics and six ballads, and he'd have a "duet" with Ged on every track, then after a successful tour he'd say it's time to call it quits for the next five years, so that way we'll be even bigger for the next album in six years. :lol:

A Farewell To Kings is a Fairly Bad Album. Without Xanadu and CTTH it would be unthinkably bad.
That's crazy.  I was going to post pretty much the same thing, but not quite as far as "unthinkably bad".

when you take off the blinding lenses of "Rush bias", a lot of their old stuff sounds.. bad, compared to others of the time.

Rivendell is better than everything on Presto with the possible exception of Show Don't Tell, and everything on Snakes other than Far Cry and 2 of the three instrumentals.

The first album is way better than Caress of Steel.

Anagram (for Mongo) > Jacob's Ladder

















I don't really believe that about JL. I adore JL. But CoS really is worse than the debut.

The guys in Rush just aren't all that funny. Probably even less so when they're trying to be.

What about the musical you wrote based on 2112?

What about your sn?

I can never trust a TRFer with “2112” in their sn. You’re all nuts!!!  :P
