There are about the same amount of songs here I intensely dislike as on T4E, but IMO both the highs and lows are somewhat higher than their T4E counterparts.

I think we should just have 1 HUGE thread ranking every Rush album

Too time consuming for me. You can do that....

1. Cold Fire- 10/10
2. Everyday Glory- 10/10
3. Speed Of Love- 9/10
4. Animate- 8/10
5. Nobody's Hero- 8/10
6. Between Sun And Moon- 8/10
7. Double Agent- 8/10
8. Alien Shore- 8/10
9. Cut To The Chase- 7/10
10. Leave That Thing Alone- 7/10


11. Stick It Out- 2/10

Overall I more than like this album, in fact I find Counterparts to be one of the bands more underrated albums, even if I have to admit it hardly belongs on the top shelf of Rush albums.

If it wasn't for a fairly samey feel across several tracks, and the truly dire Stick It Out, I would have had no qualms in saying I like it as much as the lesser albums of the eighties. As it stands, Vapor Trails took this albums sound and made it exponentially better.

This should be good...and tough! One of my all-time favourite Rush albums...solid throughout IMO.

Here goes...

Animate
Cut To The Chase
Leave That Thing Alone
Stick It Out
Nobody's Hero
Double Agent
Cold Fire
Between Sun & Moon
Everyday Glory
Alien Shore
The Speed of Love

Overall...this could change any given hour. Top to bottom...I like all the songs, but my those Top 3 are easily the standouts of this great record. CTTC HAS to be played live next tour. PLEASE!!!!!!
