I can't decide, so i choose RUSH. If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. I will choose Free will...

I picked Permanent Waves and I'm glad to see it's doing so well. While Moving Pictures is indeed great there is some kind of unique cohesiveness and energy to PW that edges it over MP. And it is my #1 Rush album.

MP's weakest point is Witch Hunt, while PeW has Jacob's Ladder (good, not great), Natural Science (ditto) and Different Strings (at best just ok).  MP is the clear winner.

Permanent Waves!
IMO Natural Science and Jacob's Ladder can beat any track out of Moving Pictures.

Natural Science is my favorite Rush song but overall I gave the slight edge to Moving Pictures. They're both perfect though.

I won't argue against anyone picking Permanent Waves. What's the point? Personally, I think Moving Pictures is the better album. Better songs. Better production. Better pacing. And it simply means more to me on so many levels.

Agreed. I actually find PeW a touch forgettable. Great...but nothing lingers in my mind once it is over.

Mega tough decision: Permanent Waves edges it.

Because Natural Science beats The Camera Eye by a landslide.

Mega-tough, indeed.

I tend to agree with your final answer, here...but not for the same reason.

Though I love both albums tremendously much, I would agree with this...but I've listened to Moving Pictures some more just over the past couple of days, and...I just don't know...

Hmmm...not a bad problem to have, though, I don't think.

At first, I thought this poll was going to be tough, but after about....30 seconds, it really wasn't.   Permanent Waves wins hands down; I've grown REALLY tired of Moving Pictures since it's sssooooo overplayed.  Natural Science was absolutely amazing when I first heard it, and Free Will is one of my favorite Rush songs ever.  The rest of the album is overlooked too.

In this "Feedback" section of the forums, there is, and has been the same voting thread.  I've thought, and felt that both c.ds, and albums shouldn't have the need to be compared by voting because of being equal, and even. Therefore, shouldn't have to be deciding by voting.
