Presto was an album of transition, and, as with many of Rush's transition albums it is quite uneven.  In RTB, the band is more confident in their new approach, wrote better songs, and quite obviously had more fun with them.  I like Presto and don't bemoan the light/thin sound as much as many do, but RTB was a return to form that got the boys known and liked by new fans for the first time since MP.  It reversed a long, slow decline for the band quite successfully.

It was a hard choice. I really like both, and think both are underrated, but i chose Roll The Bones.

Presto.  RTB is just too uneven of an album...
Exactly I like what the band was attempting to do with RTB but it has more forgettable songs on it compared with Presto.

Both Hine albums are extremely similar in terms of how much I like them. They both have a couple real bangers, with 1 dud song and the rest being middling, but all still good in their own way. For production reasons, as well as lyrical, RTB just barely takes Presto for me
