I have stated before that Presto is probably my least favourite Rush album so HYF gets the vote.

Hold Your Fire is growing on me quite a lot tbh... "Tai Shan" is starting to rise out of the Bottom 10 Rush Songs for me

HYF was the first Rush album I was disappointed in; Presto seemed an improvement, and nothing in the years since has really altered that impression.

Out of respect for truth in advertising, this should have been the album cover for Hold You Fire:
