Sorry to say I've not listened to all the Rush albums yet (I'm up through Counterparts...so no comments yet on TFE or VT).  BUT given what I've heard:

Best:  Moving Pictures or Counterparts (they're soooo close to me)
Worst:  Rush

Overrated:  2112, most definitely
Underrated:  Grace Under Pressure

Best- Permanent Waves or Moving Pictures, with A Farewell to Kings being an honorable mention.
Worst- Rush

Most underrated- Presto and Test for Echo, with Grace Under Pressure being an honorable mention.
Most overrated- Power Windows. Not sure why so many people want it played in its entirety on the next tour.
