Chronologically (objectively), 80's

In spirit, 90's.

Whereas PeW is 80's either way IMO.

It sounds very 80s to me which is one reason that I don't care for it. A lot of songs in basic 4/4. There are also the staccato shimmery rhythm guitar parts like Chain Lightening, i.e. The Police, and Red Tide i.e.The Go-Go's. Presto sounds much more dated than their other albums. Counterparts has its 80's moments i.e. (The Enemy Within) but it's further back in the decade. Presto and The Pass sound more timeless.
The Enemy Within is on Counterparts?

Yes. It's the best song on the album.

Good question! Firmly an early 90's album.

It's really an album that exists in it's own time....kind of like Permanent Waves
Except Permanent Waves doesn't suck.

I consider it a 90's album although I'm not sure why it really matters. Whether you call it a 80's or 90's album it is still one of their weakest :huh:













*Waits for Presto lovers to say it is the best rush album ever*

It's the third best Rush album ever.

If you don't like Presto you're not a true Rush fan.

I have said it before and I say it again....

Permanent Waves is a 80s album, because it was released 1980!!!

and Presto is also a 80s album, because it was released 1989!!!

The 90s start at 1990!

And it doesn't matter that they did not play the songs from Presto live until 1990! If it do, does that mean that La Villa Strangiato is a song from 2011, since it was played live on Time Machine Tour?

You're right Zumbi. I'm changing my vote :)
