I haven't seen this poll done before, but I apologize if I just haven't been able to find it. Personally, I like every song on Moving Pictures, whereas I like 3 on Signals. What do you think?

I did, but it returned nothing. How long ago has it been done?

I think Moving Pictures is a tad overrated myself... ;)

In one way it's easy, because we're talking Moving Pictures here, and that's one of the most perfect albums ever recorded. On the other hand it's very difficult, because we're talking Signals, and I love that album to death (and I certainly liked it more on first listen than MP). However, this is why I have an album ranking to refer back to, and MP beats Signals by .25 of a placing.

Despite the strong songs on Signals, for me it's Moving Pictures by a country mile.

Signals. It's their best album. Though Moving Pictures is probably a better gateway album into Rush.

About a billion times, but Carl Sagan would approve.

I'm more burned out on Moving Pictures but I have to put that as my vote. It's perfect from beginning to end. Signals is great too, but it's a little more mainstream.

Moving pictures is better.  Side 1 of the album (TS, RB, YYZ, Limelight) is one of the best album sides of all time.  Subdivisions and analog kid are truly great but I don't think anything else on signals measures up. Still an excellent album.  I think PeW versus MP argument makes more sense.  They are closer.

Moving Pictures gets my vote. To be honest, I almost never listen to Signals, don't know why thou. I guess it will change soon thou, because I am waiting on it on vinyl. I already have it on vinyl, but its not play-able. To damaged... (not by me, bought it used)

I apologize then, but when I searched for it the closest thing I could find is signals vs moving pictures vs snakes and arrows that happened last year.
