I love all of them!
The Rio concert dvd was off-the-hook. The guys were bang on. The energy created between the fans and the guys was palpable. Unfreakingbelievable!  
Neil's solo was a feast for the ears and eyes. Geddy & Alex's accoustic version of Resist literally brought tears to my eyes.
It was beautiful! A real masterpiece.

Its too hard choose the best release of Rush, they have a enormous discography and all the releases are good and for whom is fanatic the dificultie grows..
but I choose Grace Under Pressure, for me this release show a misc between the old albums and the keyboard age....but all releases from Rush are THE BEST!!

Presto is my favorite.  An underrated classic, in my opinion.  The Pass, Superconductor, Show Don't Tell, War Paint.....all great songs.  I've read that the band thought that (with the exception of The Pass) it wasn't their strongest work from a songwriting perspective.  What can I say?   I disagree!

Hey welcome to the board.   trink39.gif

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy

I believe that is the lyric you're thinking about.  It's from The Spirit Of Radio - opening track of the Permanent Waves album.

That sound about right?

Sorry to break the mood, but I voted for Grace Under Pressure.  biggrin.gif

There are others that I like ALMOST as much, but the first time I popped it in, it had me! Now, it and Hold Your Fire are visited much. But I can't listen to much of the really older stuff anymore, don't know why!  comp26.gif

Have you ever tried to give Hemispheres an honest listen a few times through?  That album is addictive!  trink39.gif

Just keep at it.  Does not matter which album you're not into... little by little it all comes together and you somehow hear or feel something you NEVER did the other times.  I've had albums that instantly exploded to me, and others that took a very long time for me to accept.  COS is the biggest on the of list of ones I resisted.  Even GUP took a while for me.  I never heard GUP until the early 90's when the 80's sound was OUT.  It was hard for me to take GUP seriously.  Now it's one of my favorites.

You should be proud of your vote for GUP.  It is an AMAZING album.
