CP is a solid album although some of it had to grow on me at first. I agree about the vocals ... it is nice to be able to hit most of the notes on an entire RUSH album!  LOL!

CP is a good record. Not top 10, but better than RTB 062802puke_prv.gif. T4E is still their best 90s album IMO.

Only bad songs on it are Nobody's Hero and Speed of Love.

  yes.gif I could agree with that.  I didn't think Nobody's Hero was that bad the first time I heard it, but after a while it just got so old.  I can't really stand to listen to it anymore.  The Speed of Love is just a dull song.  I could never get into it, never.

T4e is my least fav RUSH album of any decade.  ... with the exception of the song T4e and Driven and resist ... the songs seem forced and routine to me.

Let me first say that I feel that I am the biggest Rush fan on the planet.  But there are few albums that on first listen I am liking all of the songs.  I feel like so many Rush songs become a part of me with time.  I find some songs grab me more quickly, some more slowly, but Counterparts truly knocked me out quickly with every single song I heard.  I feel Test For Echo was overall the weakest album, but Rush's music really isn't like AC/DC's 4/4 time rock and roll balls to the wall music, it is art at its purest...sound meets mental imagery and the mind and soul are moved and changed forever.  It is an experience. It has changed my life.  I can't say that about other music by other bands.

I stuck with most of the music from "Permanent Waves" back to "Rush" (I've been a fan since 1978) and just couldn't get into the newer, more synthesized music. Then my son turns me on to the newer material (I've created a  (Rush) monster). Counterparts has some great music on it, my favorites being "Between Sun and Moon", "Animate" (They tore this one up on R30), and of course, "Stick it Out".

I have to agree with you with respect to Test for Echo. Forced and routine. You said it.
But apart from "Driven" and "Resist," "Time and Motion" is a pretty good track (on most days), and I giv'em credit for "Limbo."

I also find that some of their music takes time for me to absorb.  VT is the biggest example.  But the same thing happened to me with Counterparts.  Every song was an immediate grab.  I'm thinking it's because as albums go, it was their most straightforward and in your face approach.
