Absolute 10 overall for me.  My favorite album by Rush (and all time favorite).  Started it all for this fan.

Funny to see RUSH's highest ranking Top 40 single ranked so low by fans.  New World Man is a catchy, well-crafted pop-rock song.

I love Chemistry btw. Countdown just edges it out for being so cinematic.

This is the last Rush album that I bought as a teen and ended my interest in Rush until Vapor Trails/Rush in Rio. Did not like the keyboard focus or the sound of the album. The soundstage seemed muted and dull after the brilliance of PeW and MP.
And the overt Police influences/references seemed a little over the top.

Cannot rank as they're all about the same to my stunted ear, but Losing It and Countdown would be at the bottom. Not sure of what would be at the top. The Weapon, maybe, just for the guitar and drum patterns - although Geddy's bass in Digital Man really elevates the track (despite NP's pseudo-Copeland drumming). Too bad he doesn't play it during the chorus (just synth bass if I recall correctly).

Has anyone noticed that the Weapon's synth line and drum beat is largely lifted from this classic 1980 track by Visage?

Cool catch. Rush have always worn their influences on their sleeve. Guess this was one of them.

Some good songs marred by dreary production making the whole thing sound like it takes place in a thick fog
