I listen rarely on both of these albums. But to me, Presto is a better album, so that gets my vote.

Presto.  RTB is just too uneven of an album.  Presto was the first Rush album I bought, so that really carries some weight for me.

They both sound awful, and they're both among Rush's worst albums, but Presto actually has a few great songs on it.

Presto's self-titled song is better than the Roll the Bones self-titled song. But in concept of other minor songs, Roll the Bones wins, just because it has songs that are easier to listen to, I have tried to listen to Chain Lightning and Anagram and it doesn't do it for me.

I remember when RTB came out, I think Heresy was the first Rush song ever, that I really didn't like that much

Presto is very underrated and is A far cry better than RTB. Besides its the first RUSH concert it took a date, she was as big a fan as me.

Available Light on it's own is better than all of RTB thus Presto wins.

ETA: RTB has YBYL... the single worst song in the long and storied history of this band.

Presto.

I like both albums, but I just about love Presto. And the weak songs on Roll the Bones are weaker than the weak songs on Presto, in my opinion.

Despite the fact that I know I'm very much in the minority here, I think Roll the Bones is much better than Presto.  For some reason, except for The Pass, which I love, Presto has always been a rarely listened to album for me, while Roll the Bones gets regular spins.

Presto

A 9.5 for me. One of my very favourite albums by any band ever.

I remember making a poll for these two about 6 months ago calling it the classic game of "Would You Rather"

Really, nobody wins much from picking either album. Dreamline is great, though.
