I'm pretty sure this has been done before, but the search function doesn't appear to be working for me. Anyways, list out your favourite to least favourite albums.
I will post my list as soon as possible.

My list is always changing though.  I always seem to be falling in love with songs I didn't like in the past.  Roll the Bones is the hardest to place.  I love half of it and dislike the other half.

Oh, wow, this isn't an easy decision. I love so many of their albums; each one has its strengths and weaknesses. I can't really "dislike" a Rush album. cool.gif

I'd like to place the last three higher, but I don't listen to them very much. tongue.gif

Listed by overall album quality. For instance, Cygnus X1 is perhaps my favorite Rush song, but Xanadu & Cygnus X1 - as fine as they are - do not warrant an 'overall' top billing for A Farewell to Kings for me. The first three will never move - the rest could...maybe.
