  1. I'm in the vast minority here (I think 2112 is over-rated and over worked... really, the sound of Rush trying way too hard to make an 'epic') Something For Nothing makes the cut for me (Lessons, too) ...maybe on the odd day the Grand Finale otherwise, forgettable
  2. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:19 PM) XANADU Enough said! (can't I say it again, though?) *ahem* Xanadu.
  3. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:21 PM) LA VILLA STRANGIATO 1) The world's best instrumental. 2) My all-time favourite guitar solo. 3) Possibly my favourite Rush song. (sigh) I should just vote and quote ED's posts from now on... LVS
  4. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:22 PM) NATURAL SCIENCE This could almost be a tie, as FREEWILL is also a flawless track, and one of my all-time favourite Rush songs! (are we the same person????) ...check the pinned 'Best Song' polls, ED - I'm finding (without looking at your posts 1st) that you and I are pretty much in 100% agreement across every album that's a lot of songs! (we'll just 'flip it' for PeW) FREEWILL This could almost be a tie, as NATURAL SCIENCE is also a flawless track, and one of my all-time favorite Rush songs!
  5. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:23 PM) LIMELIGHT Really...can't I just pick all 7 songs? we agree (for the 1,000th time) here Limelight ...but there really is no 'second' place
  6. The Weapon that last chorus before the solo... "...used against them..." ...the keyboard sequencers bubble along in the background, the guitars start to 'wake up'... all the while Neil shuffles along with hi-hats and random snare cracks... I could listen to that section all night long Fear Trilogy Tour 2011!
  7. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:27 PM) DISTANT EARLY WARNING Honestly, it could've easily been AFTERIMAGE, RED SECTOR A, THE ENEMY WITHIN, or BETWEEN THE WHEELS as well. What an amazing album! (phew... although you did name drop BTW) BTW for me red lenses and Afterimage are right there, too... there's not much here to complain about
  8. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:29 PM) TERRITORIES Despite my name on here, Territories is simply too good! PoW is one of my all-time favourite RUSH albums. Not a weak moment on this record! TERRITORIES! My favorite, too!
  9. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:30 PM) OPEN SECRETS Arguably one of Neil's finest moments in terms of lyrics! Awesome! Force Ten [ 101 ] [15.40%] Time Stand Still [ 156 ] [23.78%] Open Secrets [ 52 ] [7.93%] Second Nature [ 25 ] [3.81%] Prime Mover [ 71 ] [10.82%] Lock and Key [ 37 ] [5.64%] Mission [ 119 ] [18.14%] Turn The Page [ 65 ] [9.91%] Tai Shan [ 13 ] [1.98%] High Water [ 17 ] [2.59%] Total Votes: 656 LISTEN UP, PEOPLE! it's criminal that Open Secrets isn't in double digit percentages (ED, alright... this is getting silly) *heads to Power Windows and p/g threads to see if you picked Territories, Middletown Dreams, Between The Wheels or red lenses...
  10. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:31 PM) SCARS Though I'd like to give a serious nod of approval to both CHAIN LIGHTNING and AVAILABLE LIGHT. These two songs are amazing, and I would love to see them both played live someday!! we definitely have similar tastes, ED Chain Lightning and AL go back and forth for me as 'the favorite' (I picked Chain Lightning today) Scars wasn't initially a favorite, but it was a big surprise on the '89 tour - blew me away, found a new appreciation for it
  11. Crossroads is listenable - that's it, though the glaring omissions (Not Fade Away, Bad Boy) are noticeably absent - their inclusion would've turned this EP into more than just the exercise it is
  12. Peaceable Kingdom hands down that half-time Bonham-like stomp Neil lays down while Alex and Geddy are beating the crap out of their guitars in the background is probably one of the most infectious and powerful things they've ever done there's hardly a mis-step on the entire record (production excepted)
  13. QUOTE (EmotionDetector @ Jan 28 2009, 02:34 PM) ...The best of their 90's material! CTTC (and I agree!)
  14. it's T&M today there's so much FAIL on this album, it'd be harder to choose the worst song
  15. QUOTE (*Limelight* @ Feb 6 2009, 03:16 AM) Armor and Sword Always stood out to me from the first listen absolutely agree (if I can only pick one) honorable mentions to: TWTWB BF
  16. What do you think is the best song from this album? Dreamline [ 202 ] [32.32%] Bravado [ 151 ] [24.16%] Roll The Bones [ 91 ] [14.56%] Face Up [ 5 ] [0.80%] Where's My Thing? [ 36 ] [5.76%] The Big Wheel [ 29 ] [4.64%] Heresy [ 7 ] [1.12%] Ghost of a Chance [ 79 ] [12.64%] Neurotica [ 16 ] [2.56%] You Bet Your Life [ 9 ] [1.44%] Total Votes: 625 GOAC is my pick from this largely forgettable album that said in a group of over 600 votes, it's shocking - shocking I tell you - that there's even ONE vote for any of these: Face Up [ 5 ] The Big Wheel [ 29 ] Neurotica [ 16 ] You Bet Your Life [ 9 ] ...must have a bunch of smartasses here or something
  17. QUOTE (Gompers @ Mar 27 2009, 08:12 AM)QUOTE (ghostworks @ Mar 27 2009, 08:47 AM) GEDDY LEE IS PREGNANT WITH MY BABY!!! This just in!! GW is a huge closet Porcupine Tree fan. What else will come out in the future weeks? Dateline April1 2009 Gompers announces his undying love for 7 hour long beatless ambient drones, renounces all other music (yet buys a set of 6/8/10 roto toms... but only to look at)

  22. QUOTE (wots...uh the deal @ Jan 20 2008, 08:12 PM) ...especially Still, that song is the one that stuck out immediately, it's just beautiful, and it's the one I voted for... - agreed! after all this time Still is (ahem) still my favorite!
  23. La Villa Strangiato [ 139 ] [55.38%] - end of thread!
