I voted for Fly By Night. It was a hard choice between this, 2112 and Moving Pictures. The tie breaker ended up being the amazing cover art.

BTW, I'm new here. Hello all!!

This is my first post here.

I couldn't decide between 2112, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures so I went with Vapor Trails.  wink.gif  After the Rush albums of the '80s and '90s, I found the heavy sound created by so much guitar and no keyboards very refreshing.  There are plenty of Rush songs that I really like from the '80s and '90s -- especially Roll the Bones and Bravado -- but, musically, I like VT more.

I myself voted 2112 - It kicks my ass every time I put it in.  However, in my player right now is a gem that I wanna see who else has... "Echoes on the Stage" (the soundboard rehearsal sessions).  Anyone else here have this?  What do you think of this?

Great choice.  In addition to Vapor Trails sounding so heavy that it puts many if not all of the hard rock acts out today to shame, it also has a level of emotion and passion in it that they havent expressed in a long while.  It really sounds like Neil is digging into himself to try to pull out ideas not even for the music, but simply to help heal himself from his ordeal.  That takes so much energy and focus to be able to turn yourself around and be able to turn your feelings extrovertivly into music.  I have an incredible amount of respect for that record simply that it was made.

And welcome to the board  bekloppt.gif

Oh, I also have Echoes on the Stages as well, there are some very good moments in it that you hear Geddy stop singing the lyrics and focus solely on the music.  It is very interesting to hear the music like this as it gives a new perspective for the listener.  I very much enjoyed the R30 overture on this tour for that reason as well.  Especially during Finding My Way and A Passage To Bangkok, the music was able to speak for itself.

I voted Grace Under Pressure. I find myself listening to this one most. I'm currently on a Counterparts kick...

All the 80's albums rock. I'm enjoying the new DVD RIR now... 2.gif

I find it impossible to answer this question.  As with so many others out there, different albums wind up captivating my attention at different times.  It becomes an endless cycle throughout all of their albums.  As of this past couple of weeks, I can't get T4E out of my CD player - Time and Motion has got me and won't let go.  Who knows which one is next?

2112 is the album that made rush what they are today - if it had bombed they would have been dropped by their label and might even have split! i enjoy all of their albums (although hold your fire and power windows are hard work at times). 70s 2112 / kings. 80s moving pictures. 90s counterparts / roll the bones. vapour trails is their best album since grace under pressure! 2.gif

Hi there great to find this site with lots of like minded people biggrin.gif  I don't find so many over here in Blighty! As for my favourite album, well it was close between Caress of steal, Hemispheres or Power Windows. In the end i have to plump for Power Windows as it is such a complete album. And then there's Moving Pictures and Permmanent Waves confused13.gif  It's just so hard. Great site, cheers trink38.gif
