Don't know why this thread never took off - maybe something had already been done at the time.

 

Anyway, for me it's definitely Hand Over Fist.

Superconductor

 

I really like this song! But I could happily skip this one.

 

Presto is close to perfection.

Gunter Grass wrote the best book about this album. He should have also written two sequels though.

We disagree about this album, but I gave you a like on this post, just for the reference.

Available Light. Ugh.

 

Is it the vocals? A few have told me its annoying in the way he sings the title words.

 

Plus, finally decided the moment is right:

 

Your avatar is my favourite thing on this forum. BEAUTIFUL SHOT!

Yes mainly the vocals turn me off.

 

And thanks. :)

The Pass is strong because of the lyrics. Show Don't Tell could possibly be saved with proper production and some ballsy amps. Other that that the album is a throw away.

Anagram, and it's not even close.

 

It's maybe some of the most boring music Rush has ever made, just sounding like filler riffs. No power.

 

And the lyrics make no sense. I get that they make an anagram, but that's only clever if your anagram means something.

 

Presto is one of my favorite records, but this is an always-skip for me.

I agree with Disk and NWK too...I cited Superconductor, but Anagram is the only other song on the album that I don't make it through without skipping.

 

Nine fantastic songs out of eleven, though...still a great record. I love Presto.

Superconductor, Hand Over Fist and Anagram are the three songs that let down Presto for me. Take them away, its near faultless. But those three songs are all just...OK sounding album tracks, nothing more!

 

I really like them, don't get me wrong, but the rest of Presto is sublime! Five of my very favourite Rush songs are on it!

Anagram and Hand Over Fist tend to leave me hanging, the former a bit more. I actually really like Superconductor, will never understand the hatred for it, though I don't really care one way or another about that. Everything else on the album is really unique and fills a specific, albeit unusually quirky, purpose, though The Pass has never really struck me as much better than the other songs on the album, despite poignant lyrics.
