Vapor Trails is a masterpiece, and Earthshine is a better song than Hemispheres.
Is that a popular or unpopular opinion around here? Sometimes its hard to tell... :lol:

I used to think my opinion that Clockwork Angels is an excellent album was unpopular, but recent threads showing just how many people love that album have me thinking otherwise. :D

Overall it still is. The word "excellent" being the key word there...

The Weapon is Rush's worst song.

Dog Years, Virtuality, and Superconductor are all great songs.

The following albums are better than Moving Pictures: Clockwork Angels, Hemispheres, Caress of Steel, Counterparts, Permanent Waves, 2112, Test for Echo, A Farewell to Kings

Clockwork Angels is Rush's best album.

Vapor Trails is great.

Snakes and Arrows is great.

Signals is grossly overrated.

...that's all I can think of right now. I'm sure there's more though.

Grace Under Pressure is Rush's worst original studio album.

I agree with all of your other statements. The ones in bold are better than Moving Pictures...

I knew those wouldn't be very unpopular opinions, but I wanted to list all the albums I considered better than Moving Pictures.

Couldn't disagree more with CP and Test For Echo. Caress Of Steel I could understand for an old schooler like me because I almost think its better myself. CA if one is a younger person or a new fan I could understand that too... :)

I find it interesting that being rush fans isn't unpopular enough for us.  We also want to be unpopular within the rush community with our opinions.  Carry on.
Here's another:
Rush have worked hard and sacrificed a lot and deserve to stop touring and relax for the remainder of their lives.

I've seen most say that his peak was the 80s.
Then they would be wrong. An unpopular opinion would be that it is better or as good as ever the past dozen years or so... :)

What?!?!  I LOVE yodeling Geddy!  ;)
