I actually enjoy Feedback.   But,  no, it shouldn't count.

you like feedback more than Caress of Steel?!?!?

WHAT IS THIS
BigBobby on the job.  :yes:

okay Lorraine.......whats your excuse for Power Windows being last

I like one (1) song on it.  Are you the Power Windows' Ambassador by any chance?  :ph34r:

No, its just very puzzling to me. If there isnt one, Ill take the position. Power Windows is probably on the fringe of being in my top 5. Which song do you like?

Territories :outtahere:

Power Windows is an excellent record. And Territories is an excellent song, particularly the CA version where Ged plays all those awesome lines (like the one at the end) with the Fender :haz:
I still don't like it.

This is very curious to me, usually when someone doesn't like Power Windows they have an overall negative opinion about Signals-HYF, but given the fact you're the "Signals Ambassador" it just surprises me.

Is it as simple as just you don't like the songs or is it something more?

I just don't like the songs at all.

I know how incomprehensible this is to you.  I feel the same way when someone doesn't like an album I love.

Need more people to get their rankings in, it hurts to see CA ranked among the highest to be booted after being a favorite to stay last round :(

There was a time about six months or so ago when I would have said Snakes & Arrows, but a Rush fan has to be careful about what they say.  These albums have their way of working their revenge on you.  :yes:  It's a fact!  I couldn't get the songs off of Snakes out of my head for days and days and days and days and days.  Almost drove me completely batty.  Next thing I knew, I had a fondness for a few of the tunes.

So, watch out!!  

That's why I never listen to Power Windows anymore.  Fear of the Rush Revenge!!!!!   :ph34r:

That's right.  That's what he said.  So to prove what a lousy Rush fan I am, I listened to the album.  And then listened to it again.  You know the rest of the story.  :)

Lorraine, the Power Windows Ambassador will see you now. You have quite a bit of explaining to do. No diplomatic immunity will help you here, and do not attempt album asylum. State your case!

I totally understand this. I didn't like the album at all until I heard it live. It really made all the difference. Now I really like it.

My American ancestors belonged to the Know Nothing Party back in the day.  And I follow suit with the rote response they had:  "I know nothing."  :ph34r:

You are not the first person here to say something like that.  It must be absolutely wonderful hearing these songs live.
