Hemispheres, but thats right now. Ask me again in a month.

Interesting to note: as of this time there are no votes for a post-MP album.

Permanent Waves. I discovered Rush with this album, and it made me look at music in a completely different way. Kansas' Leftoverture introduced me to prog rock, but PW sealed the deal.

I hate when this question comes up and I usually go with "Hemispheres" with "Counterparts" coming in a close second. This time, however I did go with "Counterparts". Like "HYF" for BSG this album means so much to me emotionally. When it first came out my first thought was 'Damn, they're rocking HEAVY again', and a few months later my life was turned upside down and this album was all I listened to, no matter whatever happens RUSH is always there for me. CP always will hold a SPECIAL place with me.

Signals, definatly.  It was the 3rd album I bought (technically 2nd, because I bought PerW and MP on the same visit to Best Buy), during a very trying time in my life (who hasnt been here during HS?).  I definatly have deeper feelings and experiences I relate for a number of these songs.

Rush is one of those bands that is hard to pick only one great favorite album as their entire body of work contains excellence throughout...i can't really picka fav album but i do have a fave period and that was the early 80's from PW to signals....

It's always been tough for me to choose my favorite Rush cd, but, I would have to say it is Moving Pictures.  I always thought they blended the synths in the best during this time period.

An excellent album, Cato and welcome aboard The RUsh Forum!

I actually have an RIAA award for this album going Platinum
