No!  I'm still here!  I'll fight with you!

Yay!

I think Hemispheres is the greatest of all the overrated Rush albums.
Hemispheres would be much better without that crummy title track.

No. The second side is stronger than the first side of Hems. And that second side saves the album from being overshadowed by Presto.

Side one is great. But not perfect.

Presto is fun. Side one of Hems is excellent, but flip me I would rather play Caress Of Steel (a much better album overall).

O my goodness...the True Fans are gonna kick our butts...

...most of Presto is better than the song Hemispheres...I love Hems...but Presto is full of top shelf Rush gems. Like, tippity top shelf.

And I wish certain members would accept that their is nothing wrong with having that opinion!

Segue, I gave you a 'like' not because I like Presto more than Hemispheres (I am beyond comparing their merits any further in this thread, or any other, as I love them both)- but for the last portion of your post.

Ever-respectful, right on, right on...

:yes:

Don't get me wrong, Hemispheres is a great album. This isn't me declaring war on those who adore it so.

It just lost a lot of its appeal for me after I discovered Yes. I really, truly love Rush but they did not create the best sidelong songs, aside from 2112 which is just so iconic and beautiful.

Upon reflection Hemi wins but i only listen to the full title track once every few years.

Presto is a gorgeous album with several cheesy moments putting it in the middle of all Rush albums. For me.
