If Armor and Sword can get sent packing, then The Main Monkey Business can.

Agreed!  Let's pack it a lunch so there's no hard feelings.

We're down to what I have always thought were the three best songs, and I don't really care who wins. Right now the Monkeys are the least interesting, but on another day I could have voted for another of the trio.

I'm really interested in the all out war I'm predicting for the next album.

Many hated it, but many (like me) found it to be their best work in a very long time. And I've seen several of the songs both loved and loathed most by many people.

Should be an interesting album to rate.

Does it deserve a lunch?

Many? I'd say some people, but not many.

Where have you been? All the years I've been on this board I've seen a lot of folk hate the last album. Citing Geddy's older voice (I like it on Clockwork myself) or the songs themselves (which in my opinion were their best in almost 25 years).

It is possible it's just always the same two people. I haven't exactly paid attention enough to verify that.

Maybe some celery sticks and melba toast.

Melba toast is too good for it.

Looks like Far Cry is the favorite for top spot, but I prefer the two instrumentals.  MalNar is a jamming Geddy/Neil tour de force,  while Monkey is a great showpiece for Alex.
