A member was wondering if he is the only one who doesn't like the album, so I thought it would be a good topic for a thread.  :)

Quite right.  There's no escaping this one.  I made it a public poll so we can see who is need of persuasion.  :madra: :smoke: :fury:

I like it.

When I am in a Rush mood I love it.

I still think it is overrated, as AFTK seems to be stuck in its shadow (and gets my vote for best Rush album).

Overrated you say?  Step to the side.  I hope you packed a lunch.

Can I just say, my definition of "liking" a seventies Rush album means I cannot rate it any lower than 9/10.

CoS- Hems is perfect run of albums, although AFTK is beyond 10/10 in my books.

Overrated is the wrong word.

I guess what I should say is, Hems is rated properly by the fanbase, but AFTK isn't. And that clouds my overall judgement of Hems.

Which isn't fair, I know!

Hems is better than 2112 though, and equal to CoS (which everyone by now should know I practically worship!).

Segue, don't try to weasel your way out of your faux pas.  I hope you like twinkies and cream soda.

Hemispheres is my favorite Rush album, so I have a hard time imagining someone not liking it.

No. La Villa Strangiato is the greatest instrumental ever.

And Hems is a far better album than Presto.
