This was exactly as I had it placed, too, among the seventies releases- 1, 2, and 3 here beat it, and 5, 6, and 7 lost to it.

Thanks, everybody! I'm glad you all agree with me! :lol:

It's gonna finish around 10th or so which I guess is about right. That other poll that was done (the least glorious) it finished 12th. I would have it behind Caress Of Steel and Fly By Night for sure and that would place it about 12th again. Whatever I guess. It's not top 10 in my view in the entire catalog but hey its just my opinion...

Right.  Especially in this ghetto section.  We had more participation when polls were in the Rush subforum.  But folks complained about polls clogging that section up.   :)

In spite of all our efforts, some still like to insist we are all wrong. Triple the votes, I truly doubt this is going to be a top five album amongst the entire spectrum of fans.

Remember the two guys that came by here in the early part of this year and started to poll each album to see how they rated?  That was done in the Rush subforum, and I believe CA came in somewhere between ten and fifteen.  The polls are here now in this Feedback section.  I'll go double-check to see how it did.

Based on my voting in these recent polls, it ranks at number seven, for me. And I am one of its staunchest supporters, I think (Tombstone, LABT, and x1yyz all trump me, I think, but still)...top five amongst us all, I guess it is not.

This just goes to show that all the CA fanboism that turned quite nasty a few weeks back against many (not that they cared to notice) truly is a case of the minority spoiling it for the majority.

There is nothing wrong with rating any Rush album highly, it is how you do it, and whether or not you are receptive and supportive of others opinions towards it. This poll was fun, and your frequent open minded conversation, as well as other those of other major CA fans, truly made this a pleasure.

And I will be frank, the rather enjoyable discussion in this section ensured that I stay here on this forum, it was getting too abrasive a few weeks back so lets keep the polls coming and have fun!
