I don't just hand out tens, if any album ever has a track that I don't really love, the album can't get a perfect ten from me. Some of these are among my favorite Rush albums, but not one is a ten. There are a lot of tracks that get tens though, throughout.

CA was the way to exit, so kudos to Rush on a stellar career and an unusually stellar final note.

Best: Counterparts
Worst: Roll the Bones
No perfect (10) albums. But a few really good ones, that's for sure.

Best, CA, gets a 10...the only one, though I'll give VT a 9

Worst:   Neil's Little Book of Sermons, though in a different day it could be the Tin album

Best: Presto

Worst: Roll the Bones

Presto is probably a 9 for me, because Presto, Anagram, and Hand Over Fist aren't as good as the other tracks.

RTB is worst because all of the other albums have at least two 10/10 songs, while only Ghost of a Chance is a 10 for me from RTB.

I voted the exact same way and agree completely
