Kid Gloves because of the 5/4, the energy, and the awesome guitar solo.

I love that song too.  You are right - the song has a lot of energy.
I just listened to Grace Under Pressure in its entirety (thanks Lorraine). My opinion hasn't changed. Its a good album. Red Sector A is still the star for me followed closely by Between The Wheels. Red Lenses is one of their worst of at least that era and probably ever.....

Power Windows tomorrow and then it gets scary from there..... :scared:

Really glad to see you're getting in depth out past Moving Pictures, Narpski. :) Red Sector A's definitely my favorite, but I don't think DEW get's enough credit in the forum, like CTTH and Tom Sawyer.
DEW is an excellent song as well. I have the albums up to Power Windows and have heard them many times over just not the 80's one's recently. I know the bass tone ( the Wahl or whatever it is) is going to kill me on HYF. I like Mission but the rest we will see on Thursday.....

Well, I love Forced Ten and Lock And Key from HYF, but the last two songs especially are semi-forgettable, if that helps your pre-listening experience.
Thanks. I will probably have to hold my nose but I am going to get through it. The one's beyond that are really going to be problematic I have a feeling. I tried to listen to Roll The Bones before once or twice. Yowza.... :(

It'll get better after you plow through Presto and Roll The Bones. You should AT LEAST like Nobody's Hero or Driven.

Also, Lock and Key on HYF is badass. You know that's saying something when you put "badass" and "Hold Your Fire" in the same sentence.

I didn't know where else to stick this thought so here it goes. As promised I listened to Power Windows today. Its not even as good as I remembered it being. No wonder it ended there for me.... :(

I'm sorry to hear that. I didn't like the album until I heard it live during this last tour and now I really like it. I guess it's all a matter of context.

Given that's the case, I'd be surprised if you end up liking anything off Hold your Fire. I think you'll like all of their albums up to and including S&A a little more, though.

I don't think he likes S&A  (who can blame him?  :boo hiss: ), so you can scratch that idea.

Yeah, I'd say PoW and HYF are probably the most musically similar albums in Rush's catalogue...good luck Narpski.

For me it's a tie between The Body Electric and Between the Wheels. I love the Asimovian feel to TBE.

Currently I am finding little to interest me in p/g, but only because right now I am enjoying happier music!

But I do love all the songs, although the standout is most definitely Red Sector A...
