Like others I'm guessing Marathon will be attacked next, and since Working Man should have been out first because that band Alex and Geddy used to be in might have been great, and might have shared the same name, but JR Flood is also really interesting and they wouldn't be included.

Seriously, check it out on YouTube.

But it doesn't belong in this competition.

*I'm fine with the debut being included. I'm just comparing attacks on synth Rush or late Rush to a similar question about the debut.

Working Man is stellar, but for me nothing on that first album really counts.

Which idiots have been voting for Xanadu? If you don't like Xanadu why did you ever join this site? Xanadu is like the quintessential RUSH song. 99.9% of people who don't like Xanadu don't like RUSH, and about half of them don't like rock music!

I`ll do it again just to make a point :cool:  If I was trying to persuade you that Natural Science was the greatest artistic achievement since the Sistine Chapel you`ll just go on about Sir Gawain, and I won`t change my mind either :laughing guy:
When I joined TRF, I couldn`t believe everyone loved Xanadu. It`s Tai Shan for the 70s :moon: (I just said that to be really annoying).

I'm assuming most people in these threads aren't serious when they cast derision on others for what they like.

I honestly don't care if Working Man is declared the best of all of these. If people hate Xanadu (which is madness) I doubt any of us actually care.

Still weird though....

Dreamline should probably go next as the weakest link.

And I imagine people vote for Xanadu because they think kimono rock is overrated.

Or maybe Rush released better songs.

I don't know which is worse, that Marathon is still around or that three deaf people were allowed to vote.

Saying that  Marathon is the quintessential Power Windows song is derision, not praise.

I do like Power Windows, obviously it's not top drawer RUSH but it's not bottom feeder RUSH either.
