A Farewell To Kings is a Fairly Bad Album. Without Xanadu and CTTH it would be unthinkably bad.

MY MAN!! lol

Totally agree.

Cygnus X-1 Book 1 is Spinal Tap-ish.

It really is IMO.
:yes:

The only time I really enjoyed it was when they did it live with no lyrics/singing.  T4E Tour, maybe?  Or Vapor Trails?

ETA:  It was Vapor Trails, which also featured a resurrected ByTor and the Snowdog.

Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows are stronger albums than Signals. I think it's front-loaded and I've never been into The Weapon as much as everyone else seems to be.

That being said, I still love the album and rate it an 8/10. I just wanted something else to write other than the debut album rules. THE DEBUT F'N  RULES THOUGH.

Cygnus II Hemispheres and Red Barchetta are two overrated Rush songs on TRF(they are far from bad, but overrated nonetheless).

Dreamline is overrated.  but i think it's down to it being played to infinity live since it's release.

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.

Rivendell is an amazing song.  It's true that it's not really rock, but still an amazing song.

Contrary to what anyone might say, they really do want us to think that that... thing in the video for Mystic Rhythms really is a penis

It's highly insulting. Like a slap in the face and a gut punch rolled into one.
I totally understand.
