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

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 know, but I think Counterparts and Test for Echo are grossly underrated, whereas Moving Pictures is a tad overrated.

That's cool. Disgree completely but if we all agreed it wouldn't be any fun at all...

The last three are as important and vital at least as much or more than he 70's trifecta of prog metal that is 2112/AFTK/Hemis.

Face Up is actually a decent song. Big Wheel and YBYL are still of the two worst songs they ever wrote.

It is pretty great, but even better than Cut to the Chase, Between the Sun and Moon, or Animate?

Personally, I think it's a tad overrated. Yes, it's awesome, but stuff like 2112, Hemispheres, The Spirit Of Radio, or Cygnus X-1 are better.

A couple months ago I would have disagreed with this but I've come to appreciate how good that song really is.
