I always see people calling Red Lenses a dud, even if you don't like the majority of the song, it builds to such an epic climax!

I like Red Lenses.  It doesn't rock, but I think it's cool.

Actually, Losing It is enough just by itself to sink Signals, at this stage of the proceedings.

That's what happens when you are young.  You think you will be forever young.   And then, you learn "that you are only immortal, for a limited time."

Oh, it's not that the song doesn't resonate with me. It resonates all too much.

And as far as immortality/mortality is concerned, I learned that lesson very early as well.

I just think it makes the album drag a bit, that's all.
I should have made myself clear in the post.  I wasn't referring to you personally, I was talking young Rush when they wrote it.

I know, it's all right. I don't want people to think that I think it's a bad song, either- it's not.

But I do think it drags a little bit.

Very close between Signals and Grace Under Pressure. Both are nines, on a ten-scale. In my opinion. :cool:

I think it is the equal of both Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures.
Whoa-whoa-whoa, in post #21 I found you to be brilliant. This-this is just crazy talk.

I haven't seen any votes for Permanent Waves in the last few rounds.  (I haven't checked them all.)  The albums on either side have got votes, though.  Perhaps there's no need to prolong this?

I wasn't going to mention Permanent Waves had no votes because then someone would come along and vote for it for lolsies.  :lol:

I kind of had the same idea, but then thought, no, some things you just . . . don't . . . joke about.

As the TRF ambassador for GuP, I have to say...I'm not surprised it's leading, but it's a travesty nonetheless.

I can't believe Dew and Afterimage alone don't outweigh the concept mediocrity of AFTK.

You deserve a raise.  GuP doesn't belong within 5 rounds of this competition.
