Jeez, only one? laugh.gif
Poor ol' CoS, never gettin' much love...but most of us can see why!
I'm amused by "I Think I'm Going Bald," but I feel like I'm laughing with them...whereas I think, uh, I've kinda been laughing at them in the more over-the-top parts of The Necromancer. So I'll choose it as least fave.
I used to call its companion "The Fountain of Lameness"--but I actually like most of its parts. smile.gif

Going Bald is actaully pretty good IMO.  Sure the topic and lyrics may be stupid, but I enjoy the music itself, one of the last times you would hear that "hard rock" sound out of Rush.

I'll go with the Necromancer.  Although I usually enjoy conceptual peices (including Fountain), this one just didn't do it for me.

The Necromancer promised so much... but then disappointed somewhat.
I'm sure I'll warm to it eventually.

Geddy is my favorite bassist, he is just so incredible, how fast he goes. I like to play bass, guitar, synthesizers vocals for my band, Unknown. We should go touring in about 10 months (delay), but we need a new drummer. Alex lifeson is a great guitarist, and neil peart is the greatest drummer ever!

I don't care for The Necromancer at all, but I think I'm going bald is a close second tongue.gif

wow, it never occured to me just how difficult this album would be to choose a worst. Nothing on here is bad, with the possible exception of "Panacea", which is a snoozefest. Maybe "Fountain" should be split up into parts. Anyway, I chose "Lakeside Park" just because it doesnt really rock and Rush overplayed it back in the day. I love the song however. Hard to pick a worst here. I like "Going Bald", it rocks even though it's a bit trite lyrically.

I just realized how much I like this album. It's so hard to choose worst.... Either Lakeside Park or I Think I'm Going Bald, I love the whole album! Ok, Lakeside Park is my least favorite, I'll vote for that
