The last poll I started on Friday and let it run through the weekend. The 70's won out but it was pretty close. I took Permanent Waves and moved it to the "other team" if you will. I am just curious if that makes a difference to the alliance of folks around here and I have nothing better to do. If you feel it's beating a dead horse then that is your opinion which is fine. As I said I have nothing better to do and I feel these types of exercises are fun and informative. Just my opinion. I am pretty sure by this weekend we will have much more current and interesting things to discuss but for now this is it... :)

We gonna wager where Mr. N's tipping point is? I think he is ready to sell Hemi with the 80s and later, as long as Kings and ATWAS can stick together. For me I need Hemispheres!

Curious if any the Synth fans would respond to my question in Your Choice II - Since we the old school fans have our outstanding classics, the essential Rush tunes that are inseparable from the love of Rush itself (LVS, 2112, Xanadu, Cygnus- to name only 4).  

What are the counterpart songs in the newer era that would make it better than the 70's? For those that dare to vote new era here, what makes it better?  Is a New Era Consensus possible? Subdivisions (selling out LVS for shopping malls :facepalm: ?)?  I bet your life, thats the only one that would be agreed to ;)

No. This is it. Hemispheres belongs right where it is with the rest of the greatness. How could I possibly split up AFTK and Hemispheres? I truly believe that Permanent Waves (Moving Pictures and Signals also but different stylistically) belongs with them too as far as greatness goes but it was a transitional album so I removed it last to see where folks allegiances truly lye. Just a fun experiment in my view and as I posted earlier I got nothing better to do. Appreciate your interest and participation btw... :cheers:

Still taking the debut through Hemispheres.  It's an ache in my heart but I've got to do it.

CoS, 2112, and Hemispheres are my top 3 albums.  I'd be very sad to say good-bye to PeW, MP, T4E and CA, but I can't say good-bye to CoS-Hemispheres.

Knew you couldn't. I couldn't possibly let my youth and favorite albums all time go...

This was the tipping point for me.   PeW + MP + 1/2 Signals + 1/2 p/g + Driven + Dreamline + CA > 2112 + Hemi + AFTK + FBN + Bastille Day + Working Man

By the slimmest of margins.   And I reserve the right to change my mind.   Frequently.

Even though LVS is probably my favorite overall Rush song, I voted for the later group.  Just more in there that I consistently listen to.  MP was actually the tipping point for me last poll.  Overplayed maybe, but I still enjoy it.  And once you add in PeW, it's a no brainer.

It's been interesting watching the results each round.  Surely once you flip Hemispheres to group 2, it'll win in a landslide, right?  ;)

Probably but that wasn't the intent of the exercise. Hemispheres is really the perect divide in my opinion. No need to go further... :)

Agree with that to a point. One could also argue that Signals is that point where old Rush truly dies and new Rush is born.

If you're going to do a part IV, I'm going to have to pick the later albums. Once Hemispheres drops out it's no contest.

No part lV. Hemispheres is the perfect spot to divide this bands work over the years. The change began right after obviously and continued from there. Just between you and I, I would still go the way I have been anyway...
