I will let this run to Monday night to allow anyone away for the weekend to vote.

Surprised to see MP out but if the general public buys an dlikes it then it can't be THAT good.

Anyhow, my favorite Rush album is PeW, always has been since it came out.

So, Hemispheres, great album, but time to go.

Yikes...seven votes already, but this is only the third comment...I smell a conspiracy to get rid of Hemispheres, based on the vote thus far.

I honestly don't know which way to go as they are both my favorite Rush albums.

Maybe I will go listen to the two albums first before voting.

Well, through the heartbreak of this poll, I must say these are two very worthy contenders for the top album amongst the general public of Rush Fans. Here's hoping for Permanent Waves to take the title.

For me, Natural Science and Jacob's Ladder are the two strongest songs on Permanent Waves, but can either one or both outweigh La Villa or Hemispheres?  That's my dilemma.

You're right.  There's a depth to Hemispheres that Permanent Waves doesn't have.

I could go either way to be honest. I love Hemispheres obviously. It was the end of my favorite era. I may change my mind at some point...

I very much understand the dilemma, relative to Natural Science in particular- because it's difficult for me to listen to that song and come away thinking that they ever did anything better. But with Cygnus Book II and La Villa Strangiato, they did. Only by the very slimmest of margins...but they did.

As are at least the two that proceeded them as well. COS for some also fits that category. What a great 4-5-6 album run it was...

The intro to La Villa alone is enough.  By "intro" I mean the first two minutes of the song.
