Post 'em, fools.

1. Counterparts
2. Grace Under Pressure
3. Signals
4. Hemispheres
5. Moving Pictures
6. Clockwork Angels
7. Power Windows
8. Permanent Waves
9. Snakes and Arrows
10. 2112
11. Test For Echo
12. A Farewell To Kings
13. Roll The Bones
14. Fly By Night
15. Vapor Trails
16. Presto
17. Hold Your Fire
18. Rush
19. Caress Of Steel

I expect some backlash about putting 2112 relatively low. I love 2112 the song and Something For Nothing, but the album as whole is what I'm ranking it off of, not two fantastic songs.

This is an impossible task; the only thing that's permanent is the change in rank—but I wanna
play, so . . .

Can you blame him for hoping that that album never existed?

I can dig Test For Echo, but definitely not one of the best. The title track is god-tier IMO, it's one song I wish they would play live again. Driven and Time and Motion are also good, and if you ignore the lyrics, Virtuality because of that riff.

I think if you reverse your list, I'll be closer to agreeing with you.  Counterparts is by far (like, it's not even close) their worst album.  GuP and Signals as numbers 2 and 3 are almost as jarring.  I've never seen a list quite like this.
