The opening riff in What You're Doing on it's own is enough for me to say SO LONG to 99% of the later stuff ;)

This is easy

Permanent Waves and beyond contains some of the greatest art ever created by human hands. Having said that, if I chose those albums, I would never be able to forgive myself for leaving behind CoS, 2112, AFTK, and Hemispheres. The debut and FBN are like little bonuses lol

As much as I love Rush from 1980-89, CoS to Hems is pretty extraordinary.

But a life without Hold Your Fire, Moving Pictures or Grace Under pressure?

Erm...not sure I can do that.

I didn't even think about Feedback as part of the group.  I guess that means it carries 0 weight for me.  Not that I think it's bad, but I just don't get the urge to listen to it. :huh:

It was a joke of course. If that thing tipped some folks to the "other" side we have some fandom issues in my view... :)

If the poll was seventies Rush vs. eighties Rush, it would be fair. To compare the seventies against a group of albums including Test For Echo, Counterparts and Clockwork Angels is not really fair on the run of albums from Pew-Presto.

Easy this time. PeW is my favorite album and there are too many synth era songs I enjoy to give up.

I'd take Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures by themselves over the first six albums, even if they include Xanadu.

Well Hemispheres and AFTK are 2 of my top 4 albums still, and I prefer their first 4 albums over the last 10 they have released....

Incredibly difficult, but I'd miss 2112 and AFTK way too much to justify getting rid of them. I'd miss a lot of the later stuff a heap too, but never hearing those two album again...just can't do it.
