CA easy. For the sh*t production alone if nothing else... :)

But Narps . . . they rock!  They rock, man!  Guitars!  Heavy guitars!  Headlong Flight!!  Headlong Flight!!  Where on Hold Your Fire is anything remotely like Headlong Flight?
I get that and less than a year ago I would have voted for HYF long before now but I really think I like it better than CA. The opening 8 anyway... :huh:

Whereas you get 11 songs of pure hard prog :haz: (BU2B2 doesn't count)
Which about 6 are really good...

Listen everybody.  Where is your rockin' soul?  Why are you so caught up in "production values"?  You sound like my mother!  Clockwork Angels ROCKS.  Oh, boo hoo, production values!  Wall of noise!  Brickwall!  Too much layering!  Sniffle, sniffle, cry me a river.  The album rocks.  Yeah, but Neil isn't playing like he used to.  Boo frickin' hoo.  I'm so sorry he turned 60 and can't play up to your standards.

What rocks about CA? Sounds like a wall of static. The guitars are buried. The drums are muffled. The only thing that really sticks out is the bass and it's got so much gain that it just adds to the distortion. Headlong Flight is a good song but it would improve greatly if it were produced by someone who doesn't have a tin ear.

Hyperbole.  We're in a hyperbole war.  The guitars are buried?  All you hear is a faint guitar going "I've been buried alive!  Please someone help me"?  The guitars stand out loud and clear to me.  Best Guitars Ever!  Best album Rush has done in 20 years.  No question in my mind.  In my opinion.

I agree with you, in select places. But I was listening intently to the title track this morning, and oh, my...there's some really good stuff going on there.

The rhythm section during the verses actually reminded me faintly of...Cygnus X-1 ( :o I know! But it really did). About in the same way that the verse during Headlong Flight is reminiscent of Bastille Day.

Actually, no. It made it a lot farther than I expected it to with the goon squad around, and it put up a grand fight against Caress Of Steel last round :laughing guy: oh god that was wonderful.

I feel so bad for all you "buried" people suffering from your headaches.  Aw, geez, Clockwork Angels have me a headache!  Mush shmush.  Go sit in the park and listen to tweety birds; take some Tylenol with you in case they tweet too mushily.
