Wow...low turnout. This poll isn't a good snapshot. We need more participation.

It was a public poll, plenty had a share, this is as good a snapshot as it gets.

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.

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.

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!

I seems to have been almost exactly with the majority in every poll.  From now on just ask me what I think and we can save some time.

Only 8 albums come before CA. It ranks 9 which I see as very fair. That's just shy of where I'd put it but I can't create a definite list. Anything in the top 10 is an easy 8+/10

If I remember correctly, I fought to save it and thought it didn't deserve such an early demise.  It would have been eliminated even faster had we not all been  "persuaded" :cool: to change our votes in earlier rounds.

I do agree, but as was pointed out polls lost popularity.

We had fun! And CA didn't always lose by a wide margin, that was interesting to me!
